Prioritize the Gospel
We declare the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as our first priority. It is the only source of true hope, the ultimate remedy for mankind’s suffering, and the power of God to those who are being saved. Therefore, we unite our God-given gifts and resources for gospel proclamation.
Elevate the Church
The Church was divinely established and its existence uniquely guaranteed by God as His representative of the gospel in word and deed. Therefore, we elevate and esteem churches dedicated to the gospel, by equipping and providing resources to help them proclaim this message to the world.
Impact the Next Generation
Children are made in God’s image and He commands us to nurture and instruct them in His Word. Therefore, we impact the next generation for Christ so that one day they would be restored as “children of God” through the power of the gospel.
The most effective way to serve the needs of others is through ongoing personal relationships. Therefore, we prayerfully pursue relationships with those we serve and those who help us accomplish our mission so that our actions might be used by God to transform lives.
Strive for Integrity
We recognize that we are ultimately accountable to God for the stewardship of the resources He has entrusted to us. Therefore, we strive to fulfill our mission with integrity before God and conduct ourselves in such a way that enables others to trust our work with confidence.
God exists eternally as three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19, 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Hebrews 9:14)
The Heavenly Father, the first person of the triune Godhead, in His great love for the world, sent His beloved only begotten Son into the world as the Savior of mankind to provide everlasting life and Fatherhood for each believer. (John 3:16, Romans 8:14, 1 John 4:14)
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God; was manifested in the flesh by virgin birth; was crucified as the only acceptable sacrifice for our sins; arose bodily from the grave; is preparing a place for us; will return for us. (John 1:35; John 1:1, 14, John 14:1-6, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Corinthians 15:3-9, 1 Peter 2:24, 1 Peter 3:18)
The Holy Spirit draws, regenerates, and gifts us to confess Jesus as our Savior from our sins and Lord of our lives; indwells us to explain the Bible and empowers us to live godly lives. He is also the Agent of our security and inheritance in Christ. (John 16:7-14, Acts 5:3-4, Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 5:17-21)
Every person is a sinner and separated from God until repenting of his sins and receiving God’s gift of eternal life by trusting in Jesus Christ alone as Savior and Lord. (Acts 4:12, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, 1 Peter 1:18-21)
The Bible is the Word of God; it is God-breathed and without error; it is the final authority for our faith and living. (Psalm 19:7-8, Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Peter 1:20-21)
Believers are eternally safe and secure in Jesus and give evidence of genuine faith by a life of good works. (John 3:16, John 10:27-29, Romans 8:38-39, James 2:14-17)
The church is the living body of Christ on earth comprised of all believers in Jesus Christ, but is manifested through assemblies which are devoted to worshipping God, maturing believers and reaching unbelievers with the gospel. (Matthew 16:8, Matthew 28:19-20, 1 Corinthians 12:27, Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 4:11-13, Hebrews 10:25)
The future life of believers is a blessed eternity with God in heaven, but unbelievers face eternal suffering apart from God. (Matthew 25:46, John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5:8, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 20:11-15)
Within God’s ultimate sovereign choice, eternal life is offered to the world from a divine heart of love that desires all to respond to that love, wanting no one to perish and promising an eternal relationship to every sincere seeker. (Proverbs 8:17, Jeremiah 19:13, Amos 5:4, John 1:7. 3:16-17, 5:40, 6:44, Romans 8:33, Ephesians 1:4-5, 1 Timothy 2:3-4, 2 Peter 3:9)
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Genesis 2:18-25; Mark 10:6-9).
We believe that God has provided for sexual intimacy to occur only within marriage and that any form of sexual intimacy outside of the bounds of marriage, as marriage is herein defined, is sin (Matthew 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 18, 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4).
