Statement of Faith

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”   Romans 5:1

We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired word of God, inerrant and authoritative in the original writings; the final point of reference and authority in all matter of Christian faith and life; God’s Holy Word being the objective creedal standard which judges either sin or fruitfulness. (I Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21)

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three co-equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that they created the earth in six days and rested on the seventh. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Hebrews 1:3, II Corinthians 13:14)

We believe the Father is sovereign and immutable in all His ways, sending His Son to accomplish His will on earth as it is in heaven. We, therefore, acknowledge our dependence upon God as a school, a community, and a country. (Deuteronomy 4:39, I Chronicles 29:12, Psalms 29:10, Psalms 33:12)

We believe Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man and recognize His virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial death, bodily resurrection and ascension, and reign at His Father’s right hand in Glory. (Isaiah 9:6-7, Daniel 7:14, Matthew 28:18, John 1:1-2, Colossians 2:9, Hebrews 1:3, Hebrews 12:2)

We believe in the ministry and power of the Holy Spirit, as He convicts, regenerates, seals, indwells, guides, and instructs individual Christians: empowering the Church to reveal the glory of her divine husband, Jesus. (John 14:15-17, John 16:7-15, Romans 8:11, II Corinthians 1:22, Titus 3:5, I Peter 1:12)

We believe in the necessity of salvation for sinful man, by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, His shed blood and atoning death upon the cross: the only means to forgiveness of sin and eternal redemption. This grace engenders love, and out of His love grows a desire to serve both God and our neighbor. (Acts 4:12, Romans 3:21-26, Romans 5:8-10, Ephesians 2:4-10)

We believe that it is of utmost importance to give our Lord Jesus the preeminence in all things, as Prophet, Priest and King, in view of His having been given, by His Father, all power and authority in heaven and earth. (Hebrews 1:1-2, Hebrews 6:19-20, Colossians 1:12-20, Psalms 29:2, John 4:23-24, Philippians 4:4)
