Convinced that the Bible is the complete, inspired Word of God and our sole authority for faith and practice, the Academy affirms the following truths:
We believe the Word of God is the foundation of all truth.
We believe in the Triune God - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God.
We believe in His sinless life, His vicarious atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His blood on the cross.
We believe in His bodily resurrection from the dead and His imminent return to earth for His saints.
We believe that God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things.
We believe the Genesis account of creation in which the universe was made in six days of twenty-four hours each.
We believe in the creation of man as a direct act of God. We believe that man, having rebelled and fallen from his blessed state with God, is morally and spiritually depraved. He is a sinner by birth and by choice.
We believe in the salvation of men by faith alone in Jesus Christ. We believe in the saved going to a literal Heaven for eternity, and the unsaved going to a literal Hell for eternity.
We believe our unity is found in the person of Jesus Christ who is"the way, the truth and the life" (John 14:6).
We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. We believe that any form of sexual immorality; including homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God's gift of sex. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one's gender by surgery or appearance. We believe that God disapproves of transgenderism. (Gen.2:24; Gen.19:5,13; Gen.26:8-9; Lev. 18:1-30; Rom.1:26-29; 1Cor.5:1;6:9; 1Thess.4:1-8; Heb.13:4).
We believe that the only Biblical marriage is the joining of one natural man and one natural woman. We believe that a person's gender is defined by the God-given biological gender at birth. (Gen.2:24; Rom.7:2; 1Cor.7:10; Eph.5:22-23)
