what we Believe
We believe that Christians are to be actively involved in sharing the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ with all people who do not yet believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior as the sole means of salvation (Matt. 28:18-20, II Peter 3:9).
We believe that a full sexual relationship belongs within the boundaries of a publicly committed marriage between one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24, Ephesians 5:31, Exo. 20:14, Romans 1:26-27).
Marriage mysteriously and miraculously reflects the greater and eternal relationship God desires between Himself and the Church.
We believe in the sanctity and defense of all human life including the unborn (Deut. 30:19, Jeremiah 1:5, 31:15, Proverbs 31:8).
We believe that Christians are to be pro-active in peacemaking, seeking justice, and meeting human needs for all people (Eph. 2:14, Matt. 5:9, Matt. 25).
We believe that Christians are to work actively to break down the barriers that divide people — especially those barriers of race, economics, and gender (Acts 10:34-35, Galatians 3:28).
We do not believe that these distinctions will matter in heaven and teach that the Church on earth should begin to mirror this eventual reality (Matt. 6:10).
