Chapel for elementary students will normally be held
every Friday at 8:30 AM.
We consider these chapel sessions to be an important part of our
educational program. Pastors, parents, and children’s workers will be invited to
come and share something from God’s Word that will be of
inspiration and encouragement to them.
STATEMENT OF FAITH:
We believe that all scripture is given by inspiration of God. By this, we understand that the entire Bible is inspired in the sense that holy men of God “were moved by the Holy Spirit” to write the very words of scripture. We believe that His divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of the writings (historical, poetical, doctrinal, and prophetical) has appeared in the inerrant, original manuscripts. (John 14:26; I Thess. 2:13; II Tim. 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21)
We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
(Gen. 1:26; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; John 8:58; John 10:36; Acts 2:17-18; Gal. 4:6)
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and received a human body and sinless human nature; yet, He retained His absolute deity, being at the same time truly God and truly man.
(John 1:1-3; 5:17-23; Phil. 2:5-11; Col. 2:9; Titus 2:13; Heb. 1:8; Matt. 1:18-25; John 10:30)
We believe in the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit, Who indwells every true believer.
(John 14:16-17, 26; Rom. 8:26-27; Eph. 4:30; Acts 5:3; 13:2; I Cor. 12:11; I Cor. 2:11)
We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.
(Ps. 51:5; Jer. 13:23; 17:9; Mark 7:20-23; Eph. 2:1-3; Rom. 3:9-18, 23)
DEATH OF CHRIST
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
(Isa. 53; Rom. 5:6-8; II Cor. 5:21; I Peter 2:24; 3:18; Acts 4:12)
RESURRECTION OF CHRIST
We believe in the bodily resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ and His present intercession in heaven for His saints.
(Rom. 1:4; 8:34; I Cor. 15:3-6; Acts 2:24-34; 3:13-15; 10:40-41; Heb. 7:25)
We believe that the Church, the Body of Christ, is composed of all those who personally receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
(Rom. 12:4-5; Eph. 1:22-23; 5:29-30; John 1:12)
We believe in the reality and personality of Satan.
(Matt. 4:1-11; 25:41; Luke 13:16; John 14:30; II Cor. 2:11; Eph. 2:2; 6:11-12; Heb. 2:14; James 4:7; I Peter 5:8)
RESURRECTION OF PEOPLE
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved; and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
(Matt. 25:41-46; Mark 9:42-48; I Cor. 15:50-57; Col. 3:4; I Thess. 1:10; 4:13-14; 4:16-17; II Thess. 1:8-9; Rev. 20:4-5;
11-15; Titus 2:13; I John 3:1-2; Rev. 1:7; Acts 1:11; Phil. 3:20)
BELIEVER'S RELATIONSHIP TO WORLD
We believe that upon salvation, we are divinely reckoned to be related to this world as strangers and pilgrims, ambassadors and witnesses and that our purpose in life should be to make Christ known to the whole world.
(Matt. 28:13-19; John 17:18; Acts 1:8; Heb. 11:12-26; I Peter 1:17; 2:9, 11)
