The Fall of Man


We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, under the law of his Maker. Adam fell from his innocent state by voluntary transgression, and all mankind sinned in him, in consequence of which all men are totally depraved, are partakers of Adam’s fallen nature, and are sinners by nature and by conduct, and therefore are under just condemnation without defense or excuse. We accept God’s definitions of sin as contained in the Bible as literally interpreted to include homosexuality and all other forms of sexual conduct outside the confines of a marriage between one man and one woman.
