Statement of Faith

  1. Our mission is to create communities of grace everywhere God leads.
  2. We believe in God the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
  3. We believe Jesus is the Christ, the virgin-born Son of the living God and our Lord and Savior, crucified for our sins and raised from the dead.
  4. We believe in the Holy Spirit, both as to His agency in conversion and as a dweller in the heart of the Christian.
  5. We accept the Bible, consisting of the 39 books of the Old and 27 books of the New Testaments, as the inspired and infallible word of God, that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind and the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of the ARKS’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, the Board of Directors is THE ARK’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s application.
  6. We believe in the future punishment of the wicked and the future reward of the righteous.
  7. We believe that the divine God is a prayer-hearing and prayer-answering God.
  8. We plead for the unity of all God’s people. Where God has a child, we have a brother or sister.
  9. We maintain that the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion) should be observed as closely as possible to the way they were in the days of the apostles.
  10. We believe God immutably created each individual as a biological man or woman. Participation in THE ARK activities will be based on sex as determined at birth.
  11. We believe the act of marriage is a spiritual covenant between one man and one woman and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union.
  12. We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including the pre-born.
  13. Fellowship is not based on creeds or a set of rules but on a commitment to the faith that Jesus Christ is Lord of all.
  14. We believe that salvation is available to anyone who calls on the name of Jesus Christ and accepts Him as Lord and Savior in accordance with scripture.
