Statement of Faith

Developed by local Evansville Pastors

If you have any questions or concerns about our statement of faith below let us know and we would be happy to discuss. Thank you.


1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God revealing the love of God to the world.

  • 2 Peter 1: 20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; John 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13


2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Ephesians 4:4-6; Acts 5: 1-4


3. We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. Jesus Christ is the only Savior and is God in the flesh.

  • Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15; John 1:1, John 1:14, John 3:36, John 14, Heb. 2:17


4. We believe that all mankind everywhere is lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, we believe that God will reward the righteous with eternal life in heaven, and that He will banish the unrighteous to everlasting punishment in hell.

  • Luke 24:46-47; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7; Rev. 21:8; Matt. 25:46; Rev. 20:15


5. We believe that mankind’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. That salvation is received through repentance towards God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.

  • Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10: 13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11; Titus 3: 5-7; Acts 2:38, 1 John 1:9; Romans 3:23


6. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life. The Holy Spirit is God and is the Lord and Giver of life, who continues to work in believers today and to sanctify, edify, and empower the whole Christian Church on earth.

  • John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Colossians 2:6-10; Job 33:4, Acts 1:8, John 14:26; Romans 8:11


7. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment.

  • 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; Rev. 20:11-15; Rev. 21:8; Matt. 25:46


8. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church. We believe and profess that the Body of Christ is to make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of The Son of God.

  • 1 Corinthians 12:12, 27; Eph. 1:22-23; Eph. 4:3, 13


9. We believe that the ministry of evangelism (sharing and proclaiming the message of salvation only possible by grace through faith in Jesus Christ) and discipleship (helping followers of Christ grow up into maturity in Christ) is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ.

  • Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15; 2 Tim. 4:2


10. We believe God’s plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female. That instituting procreation for mankind, God established marriage as an exclusive covenant relationship between one man and one woman, illustrating the loyal union between Christ and His bride, the church; and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, is immoral and therefore sin. As God created the human race with such purpose and distinction, all conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one’s birth does not align with God’s design and vision for His creation.

  • Genesis 2: 18-25; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:5-9; Romans 1:18-31; 1 Corinthians 7:2; 1 Corinthians 6:9; Deut. 22:5; Lev. 18:22; 1 Tim. 1:9-11; Jude 1:7; Hebrews 13:4; Lev. 20:13; Gen. 1:27-28; Matt. 19: 3-5; Eph. 5: 21-33


11. We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of evangelism. God has called us to live holy lives that will bring glory to His name.

  • Matt. 9:35-38; Matt.28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; Luke 22:41; 1 Peter 3:15; Col 3:1-25; 1 Peter 1:16


12. We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellowmen.

  • Psalm 139:13-16; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Psalm 22:10; Exodus 21: 22-25; Exodus 20:13; Exodus 23:7; Lev. 24:17; Matt. 18:14; Proverbs 6: 16-19; Deu. 27:25; Mark 7: 20-23; Psalm 127:3; Gen. 9: 5-6; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10.
