What We Believe

WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God.  (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)

 

We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)

 

We believe in Jesus Christ: His deity, the only-born Son of God, born not made, of one essence with the Father by whom all things were made. (John 10:33)

 

  • His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35)

  • His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26)

  • His miracles (John 2:11)

  • His victorious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9)

  • His Resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4)

  • His Ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19)

  • His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11)

 

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone are we saved. (John 3:16-19, 5:24, Romans 3:23, 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)

 

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation. (John 5:28-29)

 

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.  (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 2:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28)

 

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, Who spoke by the prophets, and by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; and by the baptism of the Holy Spirit that empowers the believer to do the work of the ministry.  (Romans 8:13-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, 5:18, Acts 1:8)

Lifestyle Policies

This organization is a non-profit ministry representing Jesus Christ throughout the Christian community and in the world. The ministry requires its leaders to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to live their lives as Christian role models (Rom 10:9-10; 1 Tim 4:12). Leaders will conduct themselves in a way that will not raise questions regarding their Christian testimonies.

 

The leader agrees to accept the Board’s interpretation of Biblical standards. A Christian lifestyle should reflect the Biblical perspective of integrity and appropriate personal and family relationships, business conduct, and moral behavior. A leader is expected to demonstrate a teachable spirit, an ability to share love for others, willingness to respect and live contentedly under authority, and a commitment to follow the Matthew 18 principle when an issue arises with fellow employees or management.

 

The leader agrees with the unique roles of the male and female as clearly defined in Scripture, and the employee agrees to manifest by daily example the highest Christian virtue, serving as a Christian role model, including, but not limited to areas of judgment, dignity, respect, and Christian living.
