OUR BELIEFS

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

    Jesus Christ.                                        



                        JESUS CHRIST

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

                              appointed time.



HOLY SPIRIT                       

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.




TRUE 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.                    


                      


                              CHURCH

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. 




                                           MARRIAGE

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.                 


                                                                            


                 TRANSFORMATION

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

                                           for others.



                          

  LAST THINGS                            

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.
