The Bible is the inspired word of God, written by humans through the Holy Spirit, our Advocate and Helper.   We believe in the Trinity; God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God the Father is faithful and good and is a covenant-keeping God. He always was and is and always will be.  He’s the great “I am”.  God loves us so much that He sent His only son Jesus, who is perfect, to be the sacrifice, the “Mediator” between God and man, to die on a cross shedding  His blood for us. We are all born into sin and have all sinned and are in need of a Savior.

Jesus’ blood sacrifice was the complete atonement for our sins. Jesus defeated death on the cross and His resurrection gives life, healing, and the forgiveness of sins to all who believe in Him and trust Him as the Lord of their life.  Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and through Him alone you have access to the Father.

We believe that, in the garden of Eden, God instituted marriage. We were given rules, roles, and responsibilities for marriage and if we follow God’s design for marriage, we can have a successful and fulfilling relationship.

We believe that when we’re in alignment with God’s plan and doing marriage as He designed it to be, we have a 100% chance of success in marriage.
