The Christian Conscience

We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired and only infallible, authoritative, inerrant word of God; the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. (2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; that Jesus Christ is God and that He became man, without sin, for the purpose of giving His own life as a payment for the sins of those who would be saved (1 Tim. 2:4, 2 Pet. 3:9, Gen. 1:1, Matt. 28:19, John 3:17-18; 10:30; 10:37-38, Romans 5:10). There is no other name given among men whereby we can be saved. (Acts 4:12)

We believe in the death of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth (Isa. 7:14, Matt. 1:23, Luke 1:35), in His sinless life (Heb. 4:15; 7:26), in His miracles (John 2:11), in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross (1 Cor. 15:3, Eph.1:7, Col. 1:14 Heb. 2:9; 9:12), in His bodily resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Cor. 15:4), in His ascension to the right hand of God the Father (Mark 16:19), and in His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Rev. 19:11-16).

We believe that man is sinful by nature (Romans 3:23) and that the Holy Spirit regenerates and indwells the Christian, enabling the believer to live a Godly life. (Acts 1:8, 1 Cor. 3:16; 6:19-20, Eph. 4:30; 5:18, Titus 3:5-7)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: They who are saved to eternal life in the presence of God and the lost to eternal damnation. (John 5:28-29)

We believe in the creation of man by the direct act of God. (Gen. 1:26-28, Gen 5:1-2)

We believe that the family is the first God-given institution established in the Garden of Eden. God gives parents stewardship and primary authority over their children. (Deut. 6:4-9, Psalm 127:3-5)

We believe that the ministry of the local church is to be a called-out, separated people, belonging to the Lord; that the church is designed to glorify God (Eph. 3:21), to edify its members (Eph. 4:11-12), to be purified by the Lord (Eph. 5:25-27), to provide Godly associations (1 Cor. 5:4,7), to evangelize the world (Matt. 28:19-20, Mark 16:15-18, Acts 1:8), and to retard corruption in the world (Matt. 5:13, Eph. 5:11); and that it meets for teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, prayer and providing for the needy as outlined in Acts 2:42-47.

We believe that government is not responsible for the education or welfare of our families or our children. It is the responsibility of government to reward good and punish evil judiciously. (Romans 13:1-4)
