1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
2. We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 28:19) Rev. 9/10/08
3. We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and
atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the
Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Deity-John 1:1) (Atonement-Hebrews 9:15-22) (Virgin
Birth-Matthew 1:18, 25) (Bodily Resurrection-1 Corinthians 15:1-8) (Sinless Life-Hebrews 4:15) (Personal
Return-Hebrews 9:27-28)
4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men and women regeneration by the Holy Spirit is
absolutely essential. (John 3:16; John 5:24; Titus 3:3-7)
5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a
godly life. (John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13,14)
6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life
and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (Matthew 25:31-46, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 2:1-4)
8. We believe salvation is God’s gracious gift, obtained through faith in Jesus Christ’s death, burial and
resurrection, and cannot be earned through our efforts. (Ephesians 2:8-10, Romans 10:9-13)
WCHSA’s ministry presents Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior by evangelism through fellowship. WCHSA
centers on our relationship with Christ and others rather than promoting any particular denominational issue.
Certain doctrinal issues are a part of the Christian experience for many; however, WCHSA chooses not to focus
on these but on the Gospel of Christ.

God desires His children to lead pure lives of holiness. The Bible is clear in teaching on sexual sin including sex
outside of marriage and homosexual acts. Neither heterosexual sex outside of marriage nor any homosexual act
constitute an alternate lifestyle acceptable to God. While upholding God’s standard of holiness, WCHSA
strongly affirms God’s love and redemptive power in the individual who chooses to follow Him. WCHSA’s
desire is to encourage individuals to trust in Jesus and turn away from any impure lifestyle.
