Statement of Faith
Below you will find our Statement of Faith. Our focus is on the essentials of our Christian values, and as such, we have left out some secondary issues. This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, speaks with ultimate authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, and is the sole and final source of all we believe. It is the standard by which we determine what books we will and will not publish, and the standard authors who publish with us will be held to.
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative written Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21) This means we believe in the sufficiency of Scripture and the authority of Scripture.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Distinguishable but indivisible. (Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2)
We believe in the full deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth and sinless life; in His complete and finished work on the cross and His bodily resurrection from the dead. (Luke 1:26-35; Hebrews 2:14-15, 9:12, 10:11-12; John 1:12)
We believe the only means by which we can be forgiven is to turn from our sin and personally accept the death of Jesus Christ as payment for our own penalty and to receive Him as Savior and Lord. Further, we believe that anyone who believes in and accepts Christ as Savior becomes the recipient of God's Holy Spirit, by which he/she is born again. (John 3:3-9; 20:22; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8-9)
We believe there is found through Christ hope for the broken—physically, spiritually, and emotionally. (Psalm 147:3; Luke 9:42; James 5:14-15)
We believe marriage was created by God for the good of mankind, the propagation of the human race, and the expression of His image on earth. This understanding of marriage is revealed in the Holy Scripture as God's intention for marriage, the truth of which is clearly affirmed by our Lord Jesus Christ in the Gospels. As such, this biblical definition of marriage may not be amended, reinterpreted, or redefined by society or the governments of men. (Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 2:18-25, Matthew 19:4-6, Matthew 19:8-12, Mark 10:4-9, Romans 7:2)
