Statement of Faith

We believe the 66-book Bible that contains the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired and authoritative word of God. We believe in one God in three individuals: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14). We believe Jesus is the Son of God (Luke 1:35), lived a life without sin (1 Peter 2:22), yet died for the sins of all humanity (1 Corinthians 15:3), and abolished animal sacrifices (Hebrews 10:1–18). We believe Jesus resurrected from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:4), ascended into Heaven (Luke 24:51) and will physically return (Matthew 24:44) to usher in a paradisiacal New Earth (Isaiah 65:17; Revelation 21:1) for his believers and certain animals (Isaiah 11:6–9, 65:25; Hosea 2:18), or perhaps all animals (Psalm 36:6; Luke 3:6). His believers are those saved by God’s grace, through faith alone, in Jesus and his work (Ephesians 2:8). True faith is demonstrated by works and action (James 2:24). We believe our ministry is a demonstration of true faith in action by imitating Jesus (1 John 2:6) and applying his teachings such as the Golden Rule (Matthew 7:12; Luke 6:31) and servanthood (Matthew 23:11; Mark 9:35) to animals.
