Confession of Faith

GROWING disciples who MAKE disciples.

What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is “given inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness.”  The Bible is inerrant, infallible and inspired Word of God and is our sole authority for faith and practice.

We believe one true living God revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and without division of nature, essence or being.  He is the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe.

We believe that God has revealed Himself to us through His Son.  In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He completely fulfilled the law of God as man and was temped like man, yet without sin.  He voluntarily died for the sins of man on a cross at Calvary and was buried in a tomb.  He was victoriously resurrected from the grave with a glorified body. He appeared to His disciples and ascended to the Right Hand of the Father.  He will return visibly to earth.

We believe that man was created by God from the dust of the ground and that God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and that man became a living being.  By his free choice, man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race.  Unregenerated man is a sinner by nature and by choice.  The wages of sin is death.

We believe that a person is saved by God’s grace through faith, and not of works, lest anyone should boast.  At the moment of faith, the believer is sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise until the day of redemption.  Therefore, the believer is eternally secure in Christ Jesus.  At the Second Coming of Christ, the believer will receive a glorified body like that of Christ.  Each believer is a priest before God and has Jesus Christ as his intercessor before the Father.

We believe that a New Testament Church is a local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the end of the earth.

We practice believer’s baptism by immersion in water because a believer’s sins have been forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ.  We observe the Lord’s Supper, with the fruit of the vine and bread, in remembrance of Christ’s death until he returns to earth.

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female.  Therefore we believe the term ‘marriage’ has only one meaning: A one flesh union instituted of God where a man and a woman live in a covenant relationship for life that pictures the relationship that Christ has with His Bride, the Church. The man, as the husband, in the covenant relationship pictures Christ and His love for the church. The woman, as the wife, in the covenant relationship pictures the Church and her submission to Christ.

  • Psalm 34 
Taste and See That the Lord Is Good 
Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.
34 I will bless the Lord at all times;  his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul makes its boast in the Lord;  let the humble hear and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,  and let us exalt his name together!

4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me  and delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant,  and their faces shall never be ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him  and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps  around those who fear him, and delivers them.

8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!  Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
9 Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,  for those who fear him have no lack!
10 The young lions suffer want and hunger;  but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

11 Come, O children, listen to me;  I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 What man is there who desires life  and loves many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil  and your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Turn away from evil and do good;  seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous  and his ears toward their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,  to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears  and delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted  and saves the crushed in spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,  but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He keeps all his bones;  not one of them is broken.
21 Affliction will slay the wicked,  and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22 The Lord redeems the life of his servants;  none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.
  • Psalm 32 
Blessed Are the Forgiven

A Maskil of David.
32 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,  whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,  and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

3 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away  through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;  my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah

5 I acknowledged my sin to you,  and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah

6 Therefore let everyone who is godly  offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;
surely in the rush of great waters,  they shall not reach him.
7 You are a hiding place for me;  you preserve me from trouble;  you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;  I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,  which must be curbed with bit and bridle,  or it will not stay near you.

10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked,  but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.
11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,  and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
