Statement of Beliefs
We believe that the entire Bible is verbally inspired by God and is the only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice. II Timothy 3:16-17
We believe that there is only one true, living, sovereign, holy, and eternal God, existing in three co-equal persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each being a distinct person and with a distinct function. Deuteronomy 6:4-5.
We believe in the deity and virgin birth of Christ, that He lived a sinless life, performed many miracles, shed His blood on the cross to pay the debt for our sins, was buried, bodily resurrected, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return, visibly, and personally in glory and power. John 1:1-3,14; Matthew 1:18-25; Philippians 2:5-9; I Corinthians 15:1-8.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the convictor of sin, the chief agent of regeneration and sanctification, and that He indwells, seals, and empowers believers. John 14:16-19; 16:7-15.
We believe that in the beginning God created mankind in His image, and is not in any sense the product of evolution. Genesis 1:27.
We believe that Adam, the first man, sinned by disobedience. This act resulted in the fall of all mankind so that all people have sinned and lost their ability to live for the glory of God. Every person’s sin incurs both physical and spiritual death until there is forgiveness and salvation by the grace of God. Genesis 3:1-24; Romans 3:10-23; 5:12-21; 6:23.
We believe the salvation of lost and sinful people is a free gift of God’s grace apart from human works, based solely upon Christ’s vicarious and atoning death. Ephesians 2:8-10; II Corinthians 5:21.
We believe that The Church is the body of Christ and the family of God. It is made up of saved and baptized believers, who regularly join together for worship, fellowship, and ministry. I Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25.
We believe that it is the responsibility and privilege of every Christian to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and to seek to make growing disciples. Matthew 28:18-20.
In addition to these important beliefs, we also believe that God has given the parents and the home the responsibility of bringing up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4; Proverbs 22:6. We believe that a consistent and whole education will occur when home, church, and school work closely together and are in agreement on the basic concepts of life.
