What We Believe

The Word of God: We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; that God has miraculously and meticulously preserved the accuracy of the Biblical text through the centuries; and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13)

The Trinity: We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection; and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence, and redemption. (Genesis 1:1-3, 26; Isaiah 40:13; John 1:1,14)

God the Father: We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of each person; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19)

Jesus Christ: We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth. (Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30)

The Holy Spirit: We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16,17; Acts 1:8)

Regeneration: We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as their God, Leader, and Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 19:28; Titus 3:5; I John 3:14; 2 Corinthians 5:17). We believe once saved,  always saved,  if saved.

The Church: We believe in the universal Church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, service, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world. (1 Corinthians 12:27; Ephesians 5:23; 1:22-23 )

Christian Conduct: We believe that Christians should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others; that their conduct should be blameless before the world; that they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; and that they should seek to realize for themselves and others the full stature of maturity in Christ. (Galatians 5:16; Ephesians 5:18-21; 1 Corinthians 1:10; Matthew 22:36-40)

The Ordinances: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water into the name of the Triune God. We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 8:35-38; 2:41; 8:12-13; Matthew 3:16; 28:19-20)

Religious Liberty: We believe that every human being has direct relations with God and is responsible to God in all matters of faith; that as fellow believers in Christ we are also accountable to each other in matters of conduct. We believe that because we are independent, we are free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that we, as members of society need to take positions based on God’s Word, on social issues for the protection of the health of our society. (Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22)

Church Cooperation: We believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another in a denominational organization. Such an organization, whether it is the Conference or a district conference, exists and functions by the will of the churches. Cooperation in a conference is voluntary and may be terminated at any time. Churches may likewise cooperate with interdenominational fellowships on a voluntary, independent basis. (Ephesians 5:25; 2:19; Galatians 3:26-28)

Marriage and Human Sexuality: We believe that Christian marriage is a sacred institution ordained of God for the happiness of humankind and the propagation of the race. We believe that God’s marriage ideal is a spiritual and physical union in which one man and one woman enter into a covenant with God till death separates them. We affirm the scriptural and historical definition of marriage as a heterosexual monogamy, which has been inviolable over the centuries and has been recognized worldwide. We do not believe that marriage is an arbitrary relationship created by the state or a natural outcome of social systems but rather reflects realities as fundamental as human sexuality, human nature and human anatomy. We believe as part of created order as found in Genesis, marriage is not open to reinterpretation. 
We believe that heterosexuality is God’s revealed will for humankind and that a chaste and faithful expression of this orientation (whether singleness or marriage) is the ideal to which God calls all people. We believe that legitimate sexual relations are solely within marriage. Therefore, sexual activities, such as, but not limited to, adultery, fornication, incest, homosexuality, pedophilia and bestiality are inconsistent with the teaching of the Bible and the Church. We also believe that lascivious behavior and the creation and/or distribution and/or viewing of pornography are incompatible with the biblical witness to purity and holiness. 
This belief is based on many teachings found in God’s Word, one of which is 1 Corinthians Chapter 6 Verses 9 and 10 “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” (NASB) 
We believe the sexual orientation of everyone was damaged in the fall. Therefore, from a biblical perspective we are all to control our sexual desires and bring them into submission through the power and grace of Christ and embrace a moral sexual lifestyle. We believe that everyone is created in the “Image of God” and has great value to the creator. Therefore, no matter what a person’s behavior, lifestyle or sexual orientation is, we are to share with them the Good News that Christ has conquered sin and death. (Hebrews 13:4; Luke 20:34; Matthew 19:5; Genesis 2:18-24; Leviticus 18:22)

The Last Things: We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal felicity of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked. (Matthew 24:14)
