Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible,
and authoritative Word of God in Scripture.
Being faithful to the inspired, inerrant, infallible, and
authoritative Word of God in Scripture, we profess the common faith
of the Christian Church as expressed for millennia and around the
world in the words of the Apostles’ Creed:
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended into hell.
On the third day He rose again;
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
In addition, based on this confession of faith and on the inspired,
infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God in Scripture:
We believe in the spiritual unity and equality of believers in our
Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His
image; that human life is of inestimable worth in all its
dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or
mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from
conception through natural death; and that we are therefore called
to defend, protect, and value all human life.
We believe that God wonderfully creates each person with an
immutable biological sex, either male or female; that each person’s
immutable biological sex is a gift from God; and that the two
distinct, complementary sexes together reflect the image and nature
We believe that God designed marriage as a unique, conjugal
relationship joining one man and one woman in an exclusive union;
that He intends all sexual intimacy to occur within that exclusive
union; and that marriage between one man and one woman for life
uniquely reflects Christ’s relationship with His Church and serves
as the foundational unit of a stable society.
We believe that God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, calls all of us
to deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow Him. As we
surrender out of brokenness to His transformative love and grace,
He promises healing, wholeness, and abundant life.
We believe that the Lordship of Christ requires us as disciples to
seek to conform our actions, thoughts, and desires in obedience to
This statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs.
The Bible itself, as the inspired, inerrant, infallible, and
authoritative Word of God in Scripture, speaks with final authority
concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, and
is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes
