MATCHE operates with this Statement of Faith as the foundation for our ministry and activities. All MATCHE sponsored events are conducted with this foundation guiding our perspective and our content.

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible alone to be the Word of God, to be without error in the original writings, and to be the only infallible authority for faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21)

We believe in the one true God who is eternally and equally existent in three persons: God the Father; God the Son; and God the Holy Spirit. (John 10:30; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 Peter 1:2)

We believe that salvation is by grace alone and through faith alone, by believing in and receiving Christ as personal Savior. Salvation is only through the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, not by any merit or works of our own. (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7, 2: 8-9)

We believe that man came into existence by direct creation of God and not by evolution. We believe in a literal six day, recent creation. (Genesis 1-2; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17).

We believe that marriage is between one man and one woman, and anything outside that is contrary to the Word of God. (Romans 1:18-32; Matthew 19:4-5)

We believe that God is the giver of life and all human life is sacred and to be protected. (Genesis 1:27; Job 12:9-10; Psalm 139:13-16; Exodus 20:13; Psalm 82:3-4)
