Our Beliefs - Marriage & Family
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
The Bible teaches that God ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. The family unit is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption (or connected through guardianship).

Our Beliefs - Stewardship
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
God is the Source of all blessings. All that we have, we ultimately owe to Him. God commands His people to be good stewards. Christians have a spiritual obligation to the entire world, a holy trusteeship in the Gospel, and a binding stewardship in their possessions. They are therefore under obligation to serve Him with their time, talents, and material possessions as He so directs. (See Psalm 24:1...  Read More

Our Beliefs - Last Things
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020

Our Beliefs - God the Son
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
Christ is the eternal Son of God. Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the Cross, He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.

God the Father reigns with care over His created universe and over all His creatures, including man, who is created in His image. God orchestrates human history according to the purposes of His grace. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

Our Beliefs - God
by Jay Randolph on December 31st, 2020
There is One and only One living and true God. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – three distinct Persons – with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. (See Matthew 3:13-17; Matthew 28:18-20; John 1:1; John 14:26; John 17:3; Roman 3:30; James 2:19.)...  Read More
