 We believe the Bible to be the only inspired trustworthy, and true, without error, Word of God.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17
 
·We believe that there is only one God who eternally exists in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; Matthew 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
 
·We believe that Jesus Christ is God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death that paid for our sins through His shed blood, in His body resurrection in His ascension, rising up to the right had of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that acceptance of Jesus Christ and the corresponding renewal of the Holy Spirit are the only paths to salvation for lost/sinful mankind. (John 3:16; John 5:24; Titus 3:3-7)

 We believe God’s design for sexual intimacy is to be expressed only within the context of marriage.  God instituted marriage between one man and one woman as the foundation of human society.  For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one man and one woman.  (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27; I Corinthians 6:9-11)

· We believe that dance has been restored to the Body of Christ because God promises to restore all things He created.  All things are created by Him and for Him. Everything must be restored prior to the return of Christ. (Hebrews13:5; Colossians 1:16-20; Revelation 4:11; Acts 3:21; Amos 9:11-15
 
·We believe that we dance and use our gifts because we are commanded in the Word of God to do so. (Psalm 149:3; Psalm 150; Jeremiah 31:13)
