Our Beliefs

We believe in one everlasting God, manifest in three persons.

We believe in God the Father as our Maker, the Source of all creation.

We believe in Jesus as the Son of God, fully divine and fully human, sent to earth to redeem us from our sins.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Sustainer and Guide of all.

We believe that we have been made in the image of our Creator. 

We believe that humans can choose to accept or reject a relationship with God. 

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, an extension of His life and ministry in the world.

We believe that the Bible is God's Word. 

We believe that the Bible is the primary authority for our faith and practice.

Dedication to God's Word

In May 2024, the United Methodist denomination changed our Book of Discipline to allow ordination of practicing LGBTQ persons and to allow our pastors to marry LBGTQ persons. Chiques Church does not support this decision.

We believe that God created humans, male and female, in his own image (Genesis 1:26-27). Each person's biological sex has been sovereignly appointed by God, and rejection of one's biological sexuality signifies a rejection of God's plans and purposes (Romans 1:21-32). Following God's divine order, we believe in the institutions of family and marriage of a man and a woman (Genesis 2:18-25).

We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23, 5:12), but through the transformative power of the Holy Spirit and our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, we can be born again (Ephesians 2:1-10). While our consciences cannot allow us to condone or enable sin (Ezekiel 33:8-11), we do welcome all peoples into our congregation to seek a deeper, more profound relationship with God while He cleanses us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:8-10).
