Employees are expected to commit to the precepts in our Statement of Faith, and to help the Mission fulfill its mission statement, vision statement and ends statement.

Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, Authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  2. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three “persons:” Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 4:4-6)
  3. We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutional and atoning death through His shed blood and sacrificial death on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal power and glory. (John 1:1-3)
  4. We believe God created the world and that he uniquely created humans in his image, male and female with incredible dignity, purpose, and value. (Genesis 1)
  5. We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful mankind, regeneration (being born-again) by the Holy Spirit through receiving Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord is absolutely essential. (John 14:6)
  6. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 14:26)
  7. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life eternal and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (1 Corinthians 15:51-53)
  8. We believe in the spiritual unity of all born-again believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, as the universal church and earthly representation of Christ (Matthew 16:18), with equality across racial, sex, and class differences. (Galatians 3:26)

Mission Statement
