We are not the sole authority for things

pertaining to the Kingdom


we are a part of a long line of orthodoxy and strive to value,

study, and practice each of the following statements.


We affirm our belief in the one true and living God,

who is infinite Spirit, creator, and sustainer of all things,

eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, Spirit –

who is distinguishable and yet indivisible in

nature, essence, and being.

(Genesis 1:1-31; Deuteronomy 33:27; John 4:24, Colossians 1:15-17)


We affirm that the Father is the first person of the Trinity

and the source of all that God is and does. From Him the

Son is eternally begotten and from Them the Spirit

eternally proceeds. He is the designer of creation,

the speaker of revelation, the author of redemption,

the sovereign authority of history, and the source of

all knowledge.

(John 1:14; 3:16; 14:28; 16:28; Ephesians 4:6)


 We affirm the deity of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,

who was born of the Virgin Mary through a miracle of the Holy Spirit

and is therefore both human and divine; He is one 

indivisible person with two natures – wholly God and wholly man.

He lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died an atoning death

on the cross, and was resurrected – having appeared to many after his death –

after which He ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of

the Father. He will come again in power and glory.

(Matthew 24:36; John 1:1-14; Acts1:1-3; Philippians 3:20; Colossians 2:9-15;

1 Corinthians 12:18; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Hebrews 1:3; Revelation 1:7-8; 22:12-13)



We affirm the deity and present ministry of the Holy Spirit

by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

He came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin,

of righteousness, and of judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify,

comfort, and seal those who believe in Jesus Christ, and to

empower them to use spiritual gifts for the carrying out of

the work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

(2 Corinthians 5:17; Acts 2:4; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11)


We affirm that the Bible is the inerrant and infallible word of God

that directs and tests our every step. It is free from errors and

contradictions and is the final authority for all matters of faith

and conduct; it is absolute truth and the only objective,

sufficient basis for faith and practice. Our lives should clearly

reflect a biblical worldview that impacts society.

(Psalm 119:160; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)


We affirm that all people are sinners by nature and choice,

falling short of God’s standard, deserving of everlasting punishment

for our total sinfulness, and therefore has need for complete 

regeneration and salvation by grace. We all must acknowledge and

repent of our sin and have faith in the perfect, complete, and atoning

work of Christ on the cross.

(Mark 1:15; John 14:6; Acts 20:20-21; Romans 10:9; Ephesians 2:8).

Heaven & Hell:

We affirm that there is a literal Heaven and a literal Hell

and that all those who place their faith, hope and trust in Jesus Christ

will spend eternity in Heaven with the Lord. Those who reject Jesus’

free gift of salvation will spend eternity separated from the Lord. 

(Psalm 9:17; Matthew 5:3, 5:22, 18:9, 25:31-34; Mark 9:42-49; Luke 12:5; 16:19-31;

John 3:18; Hebrews 12:23; 1 Peter 1:4; Revelation 14:10-11, 20:11-15)

Baptism & Communion:

We affirm that water baptism is a symbol of death to our sinful nature

and life through Christ and that the sharing of communion

represents our covenant relationship with the Lord Jesus and

with one another in the Body of Christ.

(Mark 16:16; Romans 6:3-4; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32)


We affirm that worship is a way of life that goes beyond

singing and music. The people of God are called to worship

in Spirit and Truth and to love Him with their whole heart and life.

(Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:28-31; Romans 12:1-2; Psalms 150)


We affirm that discipleship is a requirement for every believer –

that we each take up our cross and follow Jesus, walk with mature leaders,

and make disciples of all the nations.

(Matthew 16:24; Matthew 28:19; Luke 14:26-32)


We affirm that the church is to be a people of faith who gather

regularly for fellowship, worship; prayer, and the breaking of bread;

a people who allow the fruit of the Spirit to operate through

their lives by proclaiming the gospel, promoting justice and love,

and carrying out signs, wonders, and spiritual gifts, using those gifts

to serve the local church and community.

(Matthew 10:8; Mark 16:20; John 12:44; Acts 13:3-4; Romans 12:3-8; Ephesians 3:10-11; 4:16;

1 Corinthians 12:1-31; 1 Corinthians 14:1-33; 2 Timothy 2:12; 2 Peter 2:1-3)


We affirm that the kingdom of God is a relational family under God’s authority.

Relationships are the biblical method of building the church to extend the Kingdom of God –

God is relational and we should be as well. Further, right relationships are the measure

and means to maturity. We will continually pursue a multi-generational, multi-cultural vision of the Kingdom

(John 13:34; Acts 2:42-47; Revelation 7:9; 14:6-7)


We affirm that spiritual authority is a reality woven into every aspect of the Kingdom.

It should be seen operating relationally in every home through the lives of families

(fathers & mothers), in the community as displayed by civil government, and in the

church through governmental family-team leadership along with apostolic involvement.

(Romans 13:1-2; Ephesians 4:11-16; 6:1-3; Colossians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:1-3; Titus 2:15;

1 Thessalonians 5:12; 1 Timothy 5:17; Hebrews 13:17; 1 Peter 5:3)

The Return of Christ: THE RETURN OF CHRIST

We affirm that Jesus will return – personally and visibly – to fulfill the purposes of God, who will

raise all people to judgment, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost.

He will establish a new heaven and new earth.

 (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; John 14:1-3; Zechariah 14:1-9; Luke 11:39;

Acts 1:10‑11; 1 Corinthians 15:51-2; Revelation 20:6)


We affirm that God created man and that He created them male and female.

As such, He created them different so as to complement one other.

God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of

the family and the basic structure of human society. Therefore, we perform marriages in

accordance with the Bible consistent in both the Old and New Testament. 

(Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; John 4:16-18; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 5:11, 6:9-11,18-20, 7:1-3,8-9;

Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3-7; 1 Timothy 1:9-11)
