Heaven / Hell
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in heaven, and the everlasting punishment and separation from God of the unsaved in hell.
Marriage is a biblical institution established by God as clearly described in the scriptures. The Bible defines marriage as the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union and a covenant commitment for a lifetime. The Church recognizes only the biblical definition of marriage.
According to scripture, we believe that God created humanity male and female and that these physical, mental, & emotional states should not be altered based on personal preference. Though we cannot condone sexuality contrary to scripture, we do believe God has called us to love and care for all people.
Autonomy of the Church
We believe in the autonomy of the local church. The Church shall manage its own affairs and shall not be subject to any other religious body or organization.
