Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be divinely inspired and the only infallible, authoritative and inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).

  • We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1: 26, Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14).

  • We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:30), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19) and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1: 11, Revelation 19:11).

  • We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that we are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: those that are saved are raised into everlasting life, and those that are lost are raised into eternal damnation (John 5:28-29).

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13­-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18).

  •  We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28).

Core Values

The core values of WCA reflect the desire to fulfill the mission statement. Our core values are founded on the awareness of sin, the fallen nature of humanity and the gift of redemption from God.
