Philosophy | Statement
exists only one God, creator and sustainer of all things, infinitely
perfect and eternally coexisting in three persons Ė Father, Son
and Holy Spirit.
The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments,
are the inspired, inerrant and trustworthy Word of God, the complete
revelation of His will for the salvation of human beings, and the
final authority for all matters about which it speaks.
Human nature derives from two historical
personas, male and female, created in Godís image. They were created
perfect, but they sinned, plunging themselves and all human beings
into sin, guilt, suffering and death.
The substitutionary death of Jesus Christ
and His bodily resurrection provide the only ground for justification,
forgiveness and salvation for all who believe. Only those who
trust in Him alone are born of the Holy Spirit and are true members
of the Church; only they will spend eternity with Christ.
The Holy Spirit is the agent of regeneration
and renewal for believers in Jesus Christ. He makes the presence
of Jesus Christ real in believers,
and He comforts guides, convicts and enables believers to live
in ways that honor Christ.
Ministry to personas acknowledges the complexity
of humans as physical, psychological, social and spiritual beings.
The ultimate goal of Christian
counseling is to help others move to personal wholeness, interpersonal
mental stability and spiritual maturity.
