What we believe about Scripture

  It is the verbally inspired Word of God written by men under control of the Holy Spirit

  It contains no errors and is the complete and final authority for faith and life

  Since the closing of the canon of Scripture, there have been no new prophets or revelation from God that can be added to or considered equal to the Word of God contained in the Bible

Hebrews 1:1,2; Galatians 1:6-11; II Corinthians 11:3,4; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Timothy 3:16,17; II Peter 1:20,21


What we believe about the Trinity

  We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit

  These three are identical in essence and equal in power and glory, possessing precisely the same attributes and perfection

Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19  


What we believe about Jesus

  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary .

  He lived a life without sin

  He was crucified and died, a perfect atoning sacrifice for the sins of mankind

  He was physically resurrected from the dead.

  He ascended to heaven after his resurrection and now is seated in his glorified body at the right hand of God the Father

  At a point yet in the future, he will return to earth to establish a worldwide kingdom

Matthew 1:23; Luke 2:11; John 1:14; Acts 15:16,17; I Timothy 4:1-3; II Timothy 3:1-5; I Corinthians 15:3-5; 15:20; John 11:25-26; Hebrews 7:24-28; Revelation 10:1-3; Matthew 24:15-25; Matthew 24:29,30, Acts 1:9-11, Revelation 1:7, 19:11-14; Revelation 19:17-21; Revelation 20:4,5; Revelation 20:6; Zechariah 12:1-13:6, Romans 11:1-24; Romans 11:1-36; Revelation 19:15,16; Revelation 20:1-3; Isaiah 11:1-12:6.


What we believe about Creation

  The creation of the universe occurred in six literal solar days

Genesis 1:1-31; Exodus 20:11; John 1:3; Colossians 1:15-19; Hebrews 11:3.


What we believe about Mankind

  Man was created in God's image, innocent and without sin

  Because of Adam's sin, all humans inherit a sinful nature

  This sinful nature leaves mankind spiritually dead, alienated from God and in need of a Savior, to avoid a just and eternal condemnation

Genesis 1:26; 3:1-24; Romans 3:10-18; 5:12,19; Ephesians 2:1-3.


What we believe about Gender and Marriage

  We believe that God created the human race with only two biological genders (male and female) and that all efforts to adopt a gender other than one's birth gender is immoral and, therefore, sin.

  We believe that God has established marriage as an exclusive relationship between one biological man and one biological woman, and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship (whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise) is immoral and, therefore, sin.

  We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful or harassing behavior or attitudes, directed toward any individual, are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture, nor with the principles of this group.

Genesis 1:26-27 and 2:24-25; Deuteronomy 22:5; Romans 1:18-31; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 and 15-20; Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31


What we believe about Salvation

  God's only provision for salvation was made through the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross

  The only means of salvation is repentance from sin and having faith in the substitutionary atonement of Christ

  Salvation is a gift of God, not granted by any human achievement or offering of good works

Ephesians 2:8,9, Galatians 1:3-9 and 2:16-3:14, John 3:16; Romans 5:1; 10:9,10; 10:17; Ephesians 2:8-10; Acts 2:38; John 3:3


What we believe about Home Education

  It is the parents' responsibility to pour the foundation of God's Word into their children's lives from the time they wake until they sleep

  The goal of this education is dependence upon God when they are grown

  We believe that God has delegated the authority and responsibility to teach and raise children to their parents first. Parents can delegate their authority to someone else, but they can never delegate their responsibility

Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Proverbs 1:7; 9:10; 22:6; 2 Timothy 3:14-17.
