What we believe about Man

 

 

We believe that God has a purpose for all of humanity (Romans 8:32-37).

We believe that God has uniquely gifted everyone for ministry (Romans 11:29).

We believe that prayer is a key component to spiritual perpetuation.

We believe that man was created to praise God with singing, dancing, and on instruments (Psalm 150).

We believe that man is created with the abilities to choose for himself, a concept that is demonstrated throughout Scripture. This is called free moral agency.

We believe Adam was the first man and from him all others have come. He was created pure without sin, but chose to sin, hence sin entered all of humanity (Genesis 3, Psalm 51:5, Romans 3:23). He represented humanity as the federal and seminal head.

We believe in marriage as an institution planned by God for human fulfillment, reproduction, and to serve as a type of the church and Christ (Genesis 1:28, Genesis 3, Hebrews 13:4).

We believe that marriage is intended to be a lifetime commitment honored by all (Matthew 19:1-7). Divorce is not to be sought after, however, God does grant forgiveness for divorcees.
