What We Believe
We believe that we are our brother's keeper. We believe in the truth of God's Word, the Bible. We believe that every Word in the Bible is true, that it is the inspired Word of God, and is the authority and standard for all issues of faith and life.
(2 Timothy 3:16, 17; Romans 2:16; Psalm 119:9-11)
We believe there is one God. He is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three personalities: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and one. He is perfect in His many attributes of holiness, love, power, knowledge, justice, and mercy.
Teach the Word in the home, with a consecrated heart; Following in the footsteps of our Savior, Leading all men to God.

RACE FOR THE CHILDREN MINISTRIES
It is generally acknowledged that the original setting of Proverbs was in the home of the courtier where the parents who were responsible for the social, moral, and religious training of their children employed the material in this book (Proverbs 8:15-17; 31:2-3).
Not only in Israel, but throughout the Ancient Near East, wisdom teaching was thought to be especially important to prepare young men to be able to function smoothly and rule well in spite of the many strained relationships involved in court life. In that regard, there is probably no better curriculum for leadership training than Proverbs. However, Solomon intended that his wisdom be transmitted beyond the court to all the youth of Israel by putting it in the mouths of godly parents, so that they might teach it to their children.
As Moses disseminated the law to be taught in the homes of Israel, so Solomon disseminated wisdom to be passed on from parents to their children
(Proverbs 1:8-9; 6:20-21).
