Statement of Faith & Values

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, inerrant, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He has revealed Himself in creation, history and in Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in God’s creation of the world and humankind and in humanity’s rebellion and subsequent depravity.
  • We believe in the person and work of Jesus Christ, including His deity, His virgin Birth, His sinless life, His true humanity, His miracles, His substitutionary death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father, and in His coming personal return in power and in glory.
  • We believe that eternal salvation of depraved humanity is wholly of grace through personal faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and to grow in the knowledge of God and Christian obedience.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost – the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the separation of the church and state with each having distinct spheres of responsibility before God.
  • We believe in the sanctity of life.
  • We believe that only the marriage of a man and a woman is instituted by God, and although the Bible states that divorce is permissible in two unusual circumstances (adultery as described in Matthew 5:31, and abandonment of a Christian by a non-Christian as described in I Corinthians 7:15), we will do all we can to preserve marriage.
  • We believe that children are a gift from God and that God has established the home as the primary learning center for them with the church and the school as parent selected extensions of it.
  • We believe that all psychological principles should be thoroughly evaluated through the grid of Scripture, and that Scripture always holds the final authority.
