We believe in ONE God – Father, Son (the Word) and Holy Spirit, the Creator of all things ( I John 5:7).

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, was buried, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and is true God and true man (Matthew 1:20-21, John 3:16, John 14:6, Acts 4:10, 1 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 10:12).

We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16, I Thess. 2:13).

We believe in the personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 3:17, John 3:1-5, 2 Cor. 5:17, Matthew 16:25).

We believe in sanctification/ set apart through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness shown by purity of heart and life (Hebrews 12:14).

We believe in the moral parameters outlined in God's Word, that a marriage is between one genetic male and one genetic female, and that any sexual activity outside of this divinely ordained institution is sin, something intolerable and unacceptable to a true believer (Genesis 2:24, Galatians 5:19, Ephesians 5:3, 1 Timothy 3:2, 12).

We believe in divine healing, through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that healing is included in the Redemption (James 5:15, 1 Peter 2:24).

We believe in the initial salvation experience of being "born again” (John. 3:3-6).

We believe in water baptism, as a symbol of a believer's dedication to Christ. In obedience to the Word, we baptize in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ: the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matt 28:19; Acts 2:34-39, 10:47-48, 19:1-6)

We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the New Birth (Acts 1:8; 19:1-7, Ephesians 5:18, Luke 11:13). The gifts of the Spirit, including speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance are available to believers today. (Acts 2:4, 1 Corinthians 12:7-11).

We believe in the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit in a Christian’s everyday life. (Galatians 5:22-23).

We believe in the Christian’s hope, the soon coming, personal and bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ and that this will happen at "the last day": the very end of this age (John 6:39).

We believe in the return of the Lord, and that coincidental with His return, the dead "in Christ" will rise first, then the living believers will be "caught up to meet the Lord in the air" as we receive our glorified bodies. At that grand and glorious moment, we, the true church, the bride of Christ, will usher the King of kings into this world victoriously. The Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) will then reign from Jerusalem, and we will reign with Him over a restored paradise world (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Revelation 20:1-6).

We believe in women in ministry. (Acts 18:26; Gal. 3:28; Acts 2:17-18; Judges 4:4-5; Phil. 4:3)

Sexual Identity — We believe that God created mankind in His image: male (man) and female (woman), sexually different but with equal personal dignity. Consequently, We the board members, staff, employees, volunteers, and campers must affirm their biological sex and refrain from any and all attempts to physically change, alter, or disagree with their created predominant biological sex — including but not limited to elective sex-reassignment, transvestite, transgender, or nonbinary “genderqueer” acts or conduct. (Genesis 1:26-28; Romans 1:26-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

 

Sexual Orientation — We believe that God created and ordered human sexuality for the permanent, exclusive, comprehensive, and conjugal “one flesh” union of man and woman, intrinsically ordered to procreation and biological family, and in furtherance of the moral, spiritual, and public good of binding father, mother, and child. Consequently, we the staff, employees, volunteers, and campers must affirm the sexual complementarity of man and woman and resist the temptations to same-sex sexual attractions and refrain from any and all same-sex sexual acts or conduct, which are intrinsically disordered. (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:5-9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Ephesians 5:25-27; Revelation 19:7-9; Revelation 21:2)
