Foundational Beliefs

Holy Bible

The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
John 16:13 | 2 Timothy 3:15-17 | 2 Peter 1:21 | 1 Thessalonians 2:13 | Hebrews 4:12


There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and co-eternal.
John 5:7 | Genesis 1:26 | Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19 | Luke 1:35 | Isaiah 9:6 | Hebrews 3:7-11

God The Father

God the Father is the creator and sustainer of all things, and He created the universe in love. He created man in His own image for fellowship and called man back to Himself through Christ after the rebellion and fall of man.
2 Timothy 3:16 | Hebrews 4:12 | 1 Peter 1:23-25 | 2 Peter 1:19-21

The Son

Jesus Christ is eternally God. He was together with the Father and the Holy Spirit from the beginning, and through Him all things were made. For man’s redemption, He left heaven and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary; henceforth, He is forever one Christ with two natures—God and man—in one person.
John 1:1-14  |  Romans 1:1-4  |  John 3:16  |  Matthew 28:18-20  |  John 14:5-14 | John 10:22-39  |  Galatians 4:1-7  |  Hebrews 4:14-16  |  Luke 1:26-38  |  Matthew 1:18-24 | 1 Timothy 2:5-6

The Fall Of Man

We believe that man, in his natural state, is a sinner- lost, undone, without hope, and without God. As God’s most precious creation, God gave his very best for each and every human to ever be born, but it is up to each individual to receive Him.
Romans 3:19-23 | Galatians 3:22 | Ephesians 2:1-2, 12

Second Coming

We affirm the bodily, personal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the saints, the millennium, and the final judgment. The final judgment will determine the eternal status of both the saints and the unbelievers, determined by their relationship to Jesus Christ. We affirm with the Bible the final state of the new heavens and the new earth.
Matthew 23:39  |  Romans 11:15  |  Acts 1:10,11  |  1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 | 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10  |  James 5:8  |  Revelation 1:7  |  John 14:2,3  |  Romans 8:34  | John 5:24-30  |  Jude 5-7  |  2 Corinthians 5:6-10  |  1 Corinthians 4:1-5  | Matthew 25:31-46  |  Revelation 20:11-15  |  Acts 1:10, 11  |  1 Thessalonians 4:13-18  | 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 | James 5:8  | Revelation 1:7

Virgin Birth

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God.
Matthew 1:18, 25 | Luke 1:35 | Isaiah 7:14 | Matthew 1:18, 23-25 | Luke 1:27-35

The Atonement

Christ’s vicarious death on the cross paid the penalty for the sins of the whole world, but its benefits are only applicable to those who receive Jesus as their personal Savior. Healing—body, soul, and spirit—and all of God’s provisions for His saints, are provided for in the atonement, but these must be appropriated.
Acts 4:12 | Romans 4:1-9; 5:1-11 | Ephesians 1:3-14


Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation
Luke 24:16, 36, 39 | John 2:19-21; 20:26-28; 21:4 | Acts 24:15 | 1 Corinthians 15:42, 44 | Philippians 1:21-23; 3:21

Jesus' Blood

The Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death
1 John 1:7 | Revelation 1:5; 5:9 | Colossians 1:20 | Romans 3:10-12, 23; 5:9 | John 1:29

Baptism & Communion

The Word of God enjoins on the Church two perpetual ordinances of the Lord Jesus Christ. The first, baptism, is the outward sign of what God has already done in the individual’s life and is a testimony to all that the person now belongs to Jesus. It is identification with Jesus and is affected in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again; it is a sign of our participation in Him. Both institutions are restricted to those who are believers.

Matthew 28:19 | 1 Corinthians 11:24-26

The Church

The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus' great commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 1:22; 2:19-22 | Hebrews 12:23 | John 17:11, 20-23

Healing Of Sick

Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign which is to follow believers. It is also a part of Jesus' work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit
Psalm 103:2-3 | Isaiah 53:5 | Matthew 8:16-17 | Mark 16:17-18 | Acts 8:6-7 | James 5:14-16 | 1 Corinthians 12:9, 28 | Romans 11:29

Heaven & Hell

We believe Scripture clearly speaks on the doctrines of eternal punishment for the unsaved and eternal salvation and complete happiness for the saved — a literal hell for the unsaved and literal Heaven for the saved.
Matthew 25:34, 41, 46 | Luke 16:19-31 | John 14:1-3 | Revelation 20:11-15


Statement of Marriage. We believe that because God our Creator established marriage as a sacred institution between one man and one woman, the idea that marriage is a covenant only between one man and one woman has been the traditional definition of marriage for all of human history ("Traditional Definition of Marriage"). Because of the longstanding importance of the Traditional Definition of Marriage to humans and their relationships and communities, and, most importantly, the fact that God has ordained that marriage be between one man and one woman, as clearly conveyed in God's inerrant Scriptures, including for example in Matthew 19:4-6 where in speaking about marriage Jesus referred to the fact that "he which made them at the beginning made them male and female," the Church hereby creates this policy, which shall be known as the "Marriage Policy."
The Traditional Definition of Marriage is the only definition of marriage that will be recognized or accepted. No elder, officer, employee, servant, agent, or any person, corporation, organization, or entity under the direction or control of this Church shall commit any act or omission, or make any decision whatever, that would be inconsistent with, or that could be perceived by any person to be inconsistent with, full support of this Church's Marriage Policy and strict adherence to the Traditional Definition of Marriage rather than any alternative to the Traditional Definition of Marriage.

This Church's Marriage Policy specifically prohibits acts or omissions including but not limited to permitting any Church assets or property, whether real property, personal property, intangible property, or any property or asset of any kind that is subject to the direction or control of the Church, to be used in any manner that would be or could be perceived by any person to be inconsistent with this Church's Marriage Policy or the Traditional Definition of Marriage, including but not limited to permitting any church facilities to be used by any person, organization, corporation, or group that would or might use such facilities to convey, intentionally or by implication, what might be perceived as a favorable impression about any definition of marriage other than the Traditional Definition of Marriage.

We believe this Church's Marriage Policy is based upon God's will for human life as conveyed to us through the Holy Scriptures, upon which this Church has been founded and anchored, and this Marriage Policy shall not be subject to change through popular vote; referendum; prevailing opinion of members or the general public; influence of or interpretation by any government authority, agency, or official action; or legal developments on the local, state, or federal level.
