Statement of Faith
Our beliefs center education on discipleship in Christ
This ministry’s Statement of Faith is fundamental to basic Christian tenets and contains those doctrines to which we unreservedly adhere and teach. It is our desire to maintain this position and to do so in all fairness to each family. It is not our intention to replace the local church or to take its place in teaching doctrine and the details of following Christ; we exist rather as a service to the body of Christ.
What We Believe
- There is one sovereign God in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
There is one book of truth: the Bible. It is God’s written revelation to man, authoritative, reliable, inerrant and without need of any other document(s) to complete its message. It is the only standard by which faith and practice are to be measured.
The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.
Man is created in the image of God. Through his relationship to Adam, man is a sinner by nature and does himself sin. He is thus alienated from God, his neighbor, and the world. All are sinners.
Jesus Christ is the only Savior of sinners, the only way to the Father. He died as a substitute for sinners and was raised from the dead so that they might be reconciled to God.
- Eternal life is a free gift that is received through faith in Jesus alone. Eternal life is neither deserved by anyone, nor can it be earned by good deeds.
- There is one body: the church, with its many parts acting in unison.
