We are a family of missionaries who live to pursue God, love well, and serve the world. With that as our goal, we stand on the following statements.
GOD AS TRINITY
The One Living and True God, revealing Himself
as Father, Son, and Spirit who are coequal, co-eternal,
and author distinct but harmonious effects in creation,
providence, and redemption.
GOD THE FATHER
An infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom,
power, and love, Who works all things after the counsel
of His will and thus infallibly foreknows all that shall
come to pass. He concerns Himself mercifully in the
affairs of men, He hears and answers prayer and He
saves from sin and death all who come to Him through
God's unique Son, fully God and fully human, conceived
by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, Who lived a sinless life,
performed miracles, and taught us how to live. We affirm
as true His vicarious atoning death, bodily resurrection,
ascension into Heaven, perpetual intercession for His
people, and personal and visible return to Earth at the
Coming forth from the Father and Son to convict
the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement,
and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who
trust Jesus Christ, indwelling them as helper, teacher,
and guide and granting and empowering all types
of biblical gifts for extending the Kingdom of God.
THE WORD OF GOD
The Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and
without error in the original manuscripts, was written
under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, faithfully passed
down through generations under the superintendence
of God, and has supreme authority in all matters of life.
Everyone is created by God and for Him and yet stands
separated from Him, being sinners by nature and
choice, and therefore also stands under the just
judgement of God. True life is found by trusting Jesus
and repenting of sin, being regenerated by the Spirit
and receiving new life, being given the righteousness
of God in Christ and entering His Kingdom. All who do
this have a life that is indestructible, even by death, and
will never be separated from God.
Both universal and local, a living spiritual body of which
Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members
which is given local expression in a company of believers in
Jesus Christ who are baptized on a credible profession of
faith and associated for worship, witness, work, and fellowship.
A Biblical, covenantal relationship between one man and
one woman designed by God to display the love that Christ
has for His bride, the Church. Furthermore, it is only in this
covenantal context in which sexual fulfillment is Biblical, good
and blessed by God. Celibacy and abstinence are Biblical
paths for all those who are not married.
The expectation that every believer should live for the
glory of God and the good of humanity by developing
blameless character and conduct, practicing faithful
stewardship of possessions, and seeking transformation
The personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ
to Earth and the establishment of His kingdom in its totality
wherein will occur the resurrection of the body, the final
judgement, the eternal gladness of the righteousness and
the endless suffering and punishment of the wicked.
