STATEMENT OF FAITH
The following comprise the Scriptural beliefs of this church and its members.
We believe in the one and only living and true God, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; and that it is the duty of all intelligent creatures to love and obey Him. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; John 14t: 10-26; 2 Cor. 13:14)
We believe the Bible to be the verbally and plenarily inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed and, therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. (2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Pet. 1:20-21)
We believe that God created man upright. We believe in the fall of man; in the depravity of human nature; and that men, unless they are born again, can never see the kingdom of God. We believe in the incarnation obedience, suffering and death of Christ. His resurrection and ascension; and that He alone, by His suffering and death, has made atonement for sin; and that He ever liveth to make intercession for us. (Gen 1:26-27; Rom. 3:22-23, 5:12; 6:23; Eph. 2:1-3; 4:17-19; John 1:12; Eph. 1:7; 2:8-10; 1 Pet 1:18-19; 1 John 1:9)
We believe that Christ has appointed Baptism and the Lord's Supper to be perpetually observed in the church, the former to signify a necessity of the washing of regeneration by the blood of Christ, and the latter as an expression of our faith in the atonement made for sin by the death of Christ. (Matt. 28; 19-20; Acts 2:41-42; 18:18; 1 Cor. 11:23-26)
We believe in the future existence of the soul; that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked; a day of final judgment when all will receive according to their works; the wicked going away into everlasting punishment, and the righteous into life eternal. (Matt. 25:41-46; Mark 9:43-48; Luke 16:19-26; John 5:28-29; 11:25-26; 2 Thess. 1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Heb. 9:27; I Cor. 3:9-15;. II Cor. 5:10; Rev. 20:5-6; 11-15)
We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God's gift of sex. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one's gender by surgery or appearance. We believe that the only Scriptural marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Gen. 2:24; 19:5, 13; 26:8-9; Lev. 18:1-30; Rom. 1:26-29; Rom. 7:2; 1 Cor. 5:1; 6:9; 7:10; Eph. 5:22-23; 1 Thess. 4:1-8; Heb. 13:4)
We believe that human life begins at conception and that the unborn child is a living human being. Abortion constitutes the unjustified, unexcused taking of unborn human life. Abortion is murder. We reject any teaching that abortions of pregnancies due to rape, incest, birth defects, gender selection, birth or population control, or the physical or mental well-being of the mother are acceptable. (Job 3:16; Ps. 51:5; 139:14-16; Isa. 44:24; 49:1,5; Jer. 1:5; 20:15-18; Luke 1:44)
