In the Bible as the inspired Word of God, and in the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith such as: salvation, healing, the Second Coming of Christ, the various ministries of the Holy Spirit, and the ordinances of the Lord’s Supper and water baptism.
In God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth: And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
In the Holy Spirit; the holy catholic (by definition: universal) church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.
We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of the church as the local Body of Christ, and to provide a biblical role model to the church members and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by the church in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, should abide by and agree to this Statement on Marriage and Sexuality and conduct themselves accordingly.
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with scripture nor the doctrines of the church. We believe that the term marriage is sanctioned by God between one man and one woman as delineated in Scripture.
We shall extend the right hand of fellowship to all ministers, evangelists, and missionaries who are living a consistent Christian life and preaching the born-again experience; and to all believers of like precious faith. It is our desire to unite God’s people together in the bond of peace and unity for the furtherance of the blessed Gospel of Christ.
We believe our government is ordained of God, and we are grateful that the Constitution’ of the United States of America secures the rights to worship God and educate our children according to the dictates of our conscience.
