Statement of Faith


My hope in the podcast today is to whet your appetite and to get you started on a path of regular Bible study. I’m going to explain some basic Bible study methods, share some resources that are helpful and give some resources to help you get started wherever you’re at with it. #biblestudy @mferrell


We believe in one God, Creator of all things, perfect in all His attributes, and eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Bible
We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired word of God, and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin against God and thereby incurred spiritual death. In consequence of the fact of the first man’s (i.e., Adam’s) disobedience, the entire human race became involved in guilt and corruption, so that in every heart there is by nature, that evil disposition which leads to responsible acts of sin and to just condemnation.

We believe the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection from the dead provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe. Salvation is the gift of God brought to man by the grace of God and received through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Church
We believe in one true Church, universally existing and consisting of all those persons who are regenerated by the Holy Spirit through saving faith in Jesus Christ.

The Ordinances
We believe water Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this age.

The Last Things
We believe in the personal, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ to judge the living and the dead and to establish His eternal kingdom.

Human Sexuality and Marriage
We believe God designed marriage to reveal the union between Christ and the Church. Marriage is the life-long, covenantal union between and only between one man and one woman. It is the exclusive setting for the exercise of God’s good gift of sexual intimacy. All other forms of sexual activity violate God’s law and pervert his gift.
