We hold to a Judeo-Christian worldview. We believe that Christianity is under attack not only spiritually, but culturally and politically. We believe that we are called upon as Christians to boldly defend the faith, the truths and values it embodies, and the liberty to live according to our faith in both our private and our public lives. We are responsible for preserving the blessings of the Christian faith and culture to ourselves and our posterity; and so we will, with the help of God.
- To alert churches of all denominations in our area to the cultural and political threats they currently face in this country, and unite them in defense of our Christian faith.
- To open lines of communication and establish areas of agreement between local churches, and to foster their cooperation in the defense of the Christian faith.
- To encourage and support individual Christians in the defense of the Christian faith.
- To initiate and coordinate appropriate actions by churches and Christians in the defense of the Christian faith.
- We believe in the truths of the Christian faith, as stated in the Apostle’s Creed as summarizing the basics of the Christian faith. (https://www.christianity.com/theology/the-apostles-creed-part-one-introduction.html)
- Therefore, we believe that Jesus, the Son of God, is the only Savior of human sinners like ourselves.
- We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are inerrant, infallible in the original manuscripts, and authoritative for our beliefs and our lives.
(2 Timothy 3: 16-17)
- Our stand on Religious Liberty and the First Amendment – We believe the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right of the people to exercise our religious faith according to our own conscience; to wit,
that no government or governing entity—i.e., neither the United Nations, World Health Organization, U.S. government, state or local government, nor any regulatory agency thereof—may abrogate our God-given right and duty to assemble for the purpose of worship, fellowship, and the exercising of our faith in private or in public for any reason (God commands worship, public assembly, and public exercise of faith throughout the Bible, but specifically in such Scriptural passages as Psalm 96 and the Epistle to the Hebrews, chapter 10: 24,25);
that no global, national, or crisis—i.e., whether related to public health, national security, or any other unforeseen circumstance—can be used as a basis for abrogating our First Amendment rights;
that the only regulations that any government can impose on the people that limit these rights are those which have been understood to apply by centuries of precedent and tradition, and which directly threaten people’s private rights;
that if a dispute arises pertaining to any government attempt to impose regulation on a religious body, the Fifth Amendment protects our right to due process in all courts of the United States to adjudicate the matter speedily so as not to disrupt our public as well as private exercise of our faith;
that no government may suspend our above-mentioned rights while adjudication on any issue is ongoing, but rather must allow the private and public exercise of our faith to proceed until all cases, rulings, and appeals have been exhausted;
and finally, that no global governing body or agency may supersede our U.S. constitutional First Amendment rights, and if it should attempt to do so, we the people may exercise our constitutional rights and lawful powers to demand redress.
