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 120 
Deliver Me, O Lord
A Song of Ascents.
120 In my distress I called to the Lord,  and he answered me.
2 Deliver me, O Lord,  from lying lips,  from a deceitful tongue.

3 What shall be given to you,  and what more shall be done to you,  you deceitful tongue?
4 A warrior's sharp arrows,  with glowing coals of the broom tree!

5 Woe to me, that I sojourn in Meshech,  that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6 Too long have I had my dwelling  among those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace,  but when I speak, they are for war!
  • Psalm 119 
Your Word Is a Lamp to My Feet
Aleph
119 Blessed are those whose way is blameless,  who walk in the law of the Lord!
2 Blessed are those who keep his testimonies,  who seek him with their whole heart,
3 who also do no wrong,  but walk in his ways!
4 You have commanded your precepts  to be kept diligently.
5 Oh that my ways may be steadfast  in keeping your statutes!
6 Then I shall not be put to shame,  having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.
7 I will praise you with an upright heart,  when I learn your righteous rules.
8 I will keep your statutes;  do not utterly forsake me!

Beth
9 How can a young man keep his way pure?  By guarding it according to your word.
10 With my whole heart I seek you;  let me not wander from your commandments!
11 I have stored up your word in my heart,  that I might not sin against you.
12 Blessed are you, O Lord;  teach me your statutes!
13 With my lips I declare  all the rules of your mouth.
14 In the way of your testimonies I delight  as much as in all riches.
15 I will meditate on your precepts  and fix my eyes on your ways.
16 I will delight in your statutes;  I will not forget your word.

Gimel
17 Deal bountifully with your servant,  that I may live and keep your word.
18 Open my eyes, that I may behold  wondrous things out of your law.
19 I am a sojourner on the earth;  hide not your commandments from me!
20 My soul is consumed with longing  for your rules at all times.
21 You rebuke the insolent, accursed ones,  who wander from your commandments.
22 Take away from me scorn and contempt,  for I have kept your testimonies.
23 Even though princes sit plotting against me,  your servant will meditate on your statutes.
24 Your testimonies are my delight;  they are my counselors.

Daleth
25 My soul clings to the dust;  give me life according to your word!
26 When I told of my ways, you answered me;  teach me your statutes!
27 Make me understand the way of your precepts,  and I will meditate on your wondrous works.
28 My soul melts away for sorrow;  strengthen me according to your word!....
