Organizational Statement of Faith


We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that its original manuscripts are free from errors and contradictions and that it is the ultimate standard for Christian faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:15-17) We believe that throughout all time and in all places there has always been one and only one living and true GOD, (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6; 44:8; 1 Tim. 1:17). He has always been God and was never anything else (Psalm 90:2) (Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 44:8; Matthew 28:19-20).We believe that there is one God in whom there are three eternal, distinct, simultaneous persons -- the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. All three are the one God, coeternal and coequal, yet there is only one God, not three gods, and not one person who took three modes, offices, or forms. (Isaiah 44:6,8; 45:5; Gen. 1:26-27; 3:22; Matt. 3:17; 28:19; Luke 10:35; 2 Cor. 13:14, John 10:30; Hebrews 1:3) We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is fully God (Isaiah 9:6; John 20:28), that He was born to a virgin (Luke 1:26-35), that He led a sinless life (John 8:46), the He performed miracles (Matthew 9:27-31), and that He died to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of mankind, was resurrected, returned to the right hand of the Father and will one day return in power and glory (Hebrews 9:14 (Acts 2:32), (Luke 24:48-51), (Matthew 24:29-25:46). We believe that all people are sinners by nature and, are unable to come close to God through their own efforts (John 6:44; Rom. 3:10-12), nor can they earn or maintain salvation by their attempts at good works (Eph. 2:8-9; Rom. 4:1-6), (Gal. 3:1-3). We believe that only God saves and regenerates, and that man, through grace based upon faith alone, is redeemed by the shed blood of Christ. Only those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord will be saved. (Acts 8:15-17; Ephesians 2:1-3 and 8-9; Romans 3:23 and 5:8; Titus 3:5). (Ephesians 1:7; Romans 3:24, 25) (John 3:16) (Rom. 3:20; Eph. 2:8-9). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ validated the ordinance of marriage between one man and one woman, and that cohabitation and marital infidelity are sins of adultery as identified in the Ten Commandments. (Matthew 19:4-5, John 2:1-11, Exodus 20:14) We believe in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell reserved, respectively for those who accept and reject Jesus' free gift of salvation. (Psalm 9:17; Matthew 5:3, 5:22, 18:9 and 25:31-34; Mark 9:42-49; Luke 12:5; John 3:18; Hebrews 12:23; 1 Peter 1:4; Revelation 14:10-11 and 20:11-15) We believe that, upon belief, a sinner is changed into a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). Therefore sinners do not seek to abide in sin, though they may fall, they war against sin and repent of sin before the Lord. We believe that we must teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people, in every nation (Matt. 28:19-20). Also, we are to refute false doctrines, religions, and any contradiction of the word of God (1 Pet. 3:15). We believe God has called us to be a voice for the voiceless, to stand in the gap for those oppressed by immoral law, including the unborn, and the prisoners. We believe that God has called us to a fast of righteousness and calls the outcasts to become His chosen (Is 58:6-7, Ps 94:16 ,Isa. 27:13, Jer.30:17 ). We believe God has called us to raise our voices on behalf of injustice, not to bow down to immoral law, but to stand firm on the law of our God (Dn 3:1-16). We believe God has called us to reconcile the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children toward their fathers. (Mal. 4:6)
