Statement of Faith

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We as an organization affirm that there is one triune God, The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the Son of God, came to earth as a man and died to save sinners. We believe that humanity was created in the Image of God, but is fallen and separated from God because of sin. We affirm that all who accept Christ as Lord and Savior are justified by grace through faith because of Him and that Jesus Christ is the one and only way to salvation.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God. We affirm that Christians are to teach and live in obedience to biblical truth.

Regarding sexuality:

Scripture tells us that…

  • God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them. (Gn 1:27)
  • God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good. (Gn 1:31a)  

As Christians, we believe that…

…  God’s creative intent provides for sexual intimacy only in the context of heterosexual, monogamous, lifelong marriage, and thus excludes adultery, homosexuality, promiscuity, pornography, lust, etc. God has made us male or female, and no Alterations to or defilement of the physical form can change that.

A distinction must be made between temptations, which are not in themselves sinful and may never lead to sin, and behavior, which is sin whether carried out in thought or action.

Only God’s power enables all persons to grow into increasing freedom from their past. Many formerly promiscuous persons enter into a successful Christian marriage; others live as chaste and fulfilled single adults.

All persons are created in the image of God and must therefore be treated with love and respect. These persons have the freedom to make their own choices. When engaging with Christians or non-Christians who disagree with our view of godly sexuality, we will do so in a winsome, respectful and loving manner.
