Statement of Faith

The Bible
The Bible is the Word of God, and its original manuscripts are free from all errors and contradictions. It is the one and only infallible, authoritative, and trustworthy rule for faith and life (2 Pet. 1:21, 2 Tim. 3:16). The Apocrypha is not inspired scripture and is not part of the canon of scripture.

The Bible is to be taken literally with regard to the specific style of writing of any particular section. For example, there are parables, proverbs, figures of speech, law, prophecy, etc.

The Virgin Birth
Jesus Christ was miraculously conceived and born of the virgin Mary (Luke 1:42) by the Holy Spirit’s power (Matt. 1:18; Luke 1:35). Mary ceased to be a virgin after the birth of Jesus (Matt. 1:25).

Salvation is being saved from the righteous judgment of God upon the sinner. Salvation is obtained by grace alone, through faith alone, in the work of Christ alone (John 3:16) and not by our good works (Rom. 3:28; 4:1-5; 5:1; Eph. 2:8-9; Gal. 3:1-4; Matt. 7:22-23). We are chosen for salvation by God (2 Thess. 2:13) and cannot lose our salvation. See “Eternal Security“

Sanctification is the process by which the Holy Spirit makes us more like Christ in all that we do, think, and desire. Our sanctification increases our ability to repent from and resist sin, which is accomplished by God’s grace (1 Thess. 4:7; Eph. 2:10; 1 Tim. 4:4; 1 Pet. 3:15; 2 Tim. 2:25).

This process continues all of the Christian’s life and is the result of salvation, not a cause of it, nor a contributing factor to it. Furthermore, the effort of sanctification does not maintain the believer’s salvation.

The Spiritual Realm
There is a spiritual realm of angels and demons. Angels serve God and carry out his will. Demons are fallen angels (2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6) who war against God and who will ultimately face eternal punishment (Matt. 25:41; 2 Per. 2:4). Christians cannot be demon-possessed.

Marriage is between one man and one woman. Sexual intercourse is to be had only within that bond, not outside of it. Marriage is dissolved upon death. Marriage can also be dissolved due to adultery (Matt. 19:9) and abandonment (1 Cor. 7:15).
