Our Guiding Principles

The Preeminence of Evangelism

We believe that knowing and glorifying God is the ultimate purpose in living, that through Jesus Christ our Lord we attain eternal life, sharing His love and sacrifice, within our families as well as reaching out to suffering humanity.

The Permanence of Marriage

We believe that God intended the institution of marriage to be a permanent, lifelong relationship between a man and a woman, in spite of trials, financial and health difficulties, or emotional stresses that may occur.

The Value of Children

We believe that children are a gift from God and because of this blessed heritage, we are held responsible and accountable to Him for raising, shaping and preparing them for a life of service in His Kingdom and to mankind.

The Sanctity of Human Life

We believe that human life, in all its dimensions, is of inestimable value and importance, whether this life be the unborn, the aged, the widowed, the mentally handicapped, the physically challenged, the unattractive, and any other condition in which human life is expressed from conception to the grave.

The Relationship of Family, Church and Government

We believe that there are three basic God-ordained institutions - the family, the church and the government - from which all humankind benefits.

The family exists to propagate the human race and to ensure a safe and secure haven in which the younger generation may be nurtured, taught and loved.

The church exists to minister to individuals and families by sharing the unconditional love of God and the message of repentance and salvation through the blood of Jesus.

The government exists to provide a stable framework for social order and to maintain a cultural equilibrium
