Biblical Mandate
“Deliver those who are being taken away to death, And those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh, hold them back. If you say, ‘See, we did not know this,’ Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man according to his work?”  – Proverbs 24:11-12
What We Believe
  • We believe the Holy Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. Because God is its author, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy, without any mixture of error.
  • We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all pervading. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence and obedience.
  • We believe in God the Father, as the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord, Jesus Christ—that during his earthly life He was fully God and fully man. We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary death on the cross, in His overcoming death and the grave, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father—where He serves as Mediator and effects the reconciliation of man with God—and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. Through illumination, He enables individuals to understand truth; He convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and He calls individuals to the Savior, and effects regeneration. He seals the believer unto the day of final redemption.
  • We believe that Man was created, male and female, by a direct act of God and in His Image. We believe that in God’s good design, gender identity is determined by each individual’s DNA and not by one’s self-perception. We believe that efforts to live contrary to God’s design, whether by behavior, appearance, medical therapy or surgery are rebelling against the gift of God’s will for each individual person.
  • We believe God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. Just as the first man and woman were married by God, biblical marriage continues to be defined as the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. Sexual intimacy is to occur only within the context of marriage as defined in Scripture. Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord.
  • We believe in the sanctity of human life, from conception through natural death, and that every human life is sacred and created by God in His Image. We are therefore commanded by God to defend, protect, and value all human life.
  • We believe that Man fell into sin by his free choice, and thereby became depraved and guilty before God, resulting in the need for salvation. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful individuals, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential, and that this salvation is received through repentance of sinfulness and faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord alone, and not as a result of any good work.
  • We believe in the resurrection of the body for both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of everlasting life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ. The Body of Christ should cooperate with one another in carrying forward missionary, educational, and benevolent ministries for the extension of Christ’s Kingdom. Christian unity, in the New Testament sense, is spiritual harmony and voluntary cooperation for common ends of God’s glory by various groups of Christ’s people.
