Statement of Faith
In order to guarantee the perpetuity of the ideals and biblical principles, the qualifications of all our members are as follows: Every member shall be a member of the church of Christ (Christian, non-denominational) and must believe without reservation in the full and final inspiration of the Bible so that it is to him the infallible Word of God and, therefore, the all-sufficient rule of faith and life; in the deity and supreme authority of Jesus Christ; in obedience to the Gospel; the divine origin and character of the church and the restoration of its unity on a New Testament basis. In order to avoid any misunderstanding or equivocation on the matter of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and in his Word, it is hereby required that all members shall affirm their unqualified acceptance of the virgin birth of Christ; the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Christ; the reality of final judgment; heaven and hell: all as taught in the Bible. No sectarian test shall be used to determine the qualifications of any member, but all shall reaffirm their allegiance yearly to the foregoing belief, or resign at once. Further, to perpetuate sound doctrine and non-sectarian teaching, the Bible shall be taught through all productions and media as the only foundation of belief, and all things shall be conducted in harmony with the spirit and letter of the Word of God as revealed in the Bible.
We believe that the Bible is the final authority for all matters of faith, truth, morality, and Christian living.
We believe the Bible teaches that God is the Creator and Sustainer of human life; that God creates each person in His image; and that life is therefore sacred, from conception to natural death.
We believe that God creates each person as male or female; that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the “image of God” in humankind; and that each person’s biological gender is an intrinsic, immutable aspect of his or her nature and identity.
We believe the Bible teaches that God established marriage in the beginning as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman; that He has reserved sexual intimacy as an expression of love and commitment between married couples; and that any intimate expression of sexuality outside of Biblical marriage is sin.
