Our Core Values
- The Word of God is the Final Authority for all of life.
- The Sanctity of Human Life begins at conception.
- The Distinction of the Sexes is a gift from God; both male and female are created in the image of God.
- The Covenant of Holy Matrimony between one biological male and one biological female for life is God’s design for the Home and Family.
- THE INSPIRATION OF THE BIBLE, equally in all parts and without error in its origin.
- THE ONE TRUE GOD—eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- THE DEITY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST—the preexistence, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension to Heaven, and the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
- THE FALL OF MAN—and separation from God.
- THE SALVATION OF MAN—man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
- THE ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH—baptism in water by immersion and Holy Communion.
- THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT—this experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth.
- THE EVIDENCE OF THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT—demonstrated by the initial sign of speaking in tongues.
- SANCTIFICATION—an act of separation from that which is evil and of dedication unto God.
- THE CHURCH AND ITS MISSION—with divine appointments for the fulfillment of God’s great commission.
- THE MINISTRY—with the threefold purpose of leading the church in evangelization of the world, worship of God, and building a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son.
- DIVINE HEALING—deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers.
- THE BLESSED HOPE—The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church.
- THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST—the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years.
- THE FINAL JUDGMENT—in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works.
- THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH—“We according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”
- HUMAN SEXUALITY—We believe God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. We believe any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, incest, fornication, adultery and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender by surgery or appearance.
