STATEMENT OF FAITH


We believe in the simple orthodoxy of the faith, as reflected in the Nicene Creed:

“We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible, and in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only-begotten; begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man. And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried. And the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead, whose Kingdom shall have no end. And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, who proceeds from the Father [some denominations add, “and the Son”], who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. We believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.”

We believe we are called to be faithful members of a church that is Bible-believing and Trinitarian, regularly attending worship, submitted under the care and covering of pastors and elders, that we might be a faithful part of God’s mission to prepare His children for fellowship with Him throughout eternity. We believe in living out this mission in obedience to God and in His love. We are to observe God’s biblical commandments, whether in marriage (which, as the Bible teaches, is between one man and one woman), singlehood, or in celibacy, bringing up children (whether biological or spiritual) in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and teaching them to follow Him with their whole heart.
