我们相信一个上帝, 万物的创造者, 无限完美, 并以三个位格永远存在:父亲, 圣子与圣灵.
We believe that 耶稣 Christ is true God and true man having been conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of virgin Mary. He died on the cross; a sacrifice for our sins according to the 圣经. 进一步, 他的身体从死里复活了, 升入天堂, 在至高之王的右边在哪里呢, 他现在是大祭司和辩护律师.
We believe that the ministry of the 圣灵 is to glorify the Lord 耶稣 Christ, 在这个时代，让人知道自己有罪, 使信主的罪人重生, 存在, 指南, 教导信徒敬虔的生活和服事.
我们相信圣经, 旧约和新约, to be the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
We believe the shed Blood of 耶稣 Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for the justification and salvation for all who believe, and that only such as receive 耶稣 Christ by faith are born of the 圣灵, 这样就成了神的儿女.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the dead; of believers to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, 不信的，直到永远, 有意识的惩罚.
我们相信真正的教会是由所有这样的人组成的, who through saving faith in 耶稣 Christ have been regenerated by the 圣灵 and are united together in the Body of Christ of which He is the Head.
We believe that water baptism is a Scriptural witness of an inward regeneration. All who have accepted 耶稣 Christ as their personal Savior shall be urged to make this step in their Christian life.
We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord 耶稣 Christ which all believers and only believers should share in.
We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of Burley Bible Church as the local Body of Christ, and to provide a biblical role model to the Burley Bible Church members and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by Burley Bible Church in any capacity, 或者做志愿者, 同意并遵守这份婚姻声明, 性别与性.
马太福音5:16 - 让你的光芒照耀在世人面前， 叫他们看见你们的好行为，并且 u你们要荣耀你们在天上的父.
腓立比书2:14-16 凡事不埋怨，不争论， 15 使你成为无可指责和无害的, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, 在他们中间，你像光一样照耀着世界, 16 紧紧抓住生命的话语, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
我们相信个人, pre-millennial, 并我们主耶稣基督必再来, and that this “blessed hope” has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
We believe that man 是 created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost; only through regeneration by the 圣灵 can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, 通过耶稣基督寻求他的怜悯和宽恕.
徒 3:19 – 21 – 所以要悔改归正, 使你的罪孽得以涂抹, 好叫那舒畅的日子从主面前来到, 20 并要差遣豫先所传给你们的耶稣基督来。 21whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.
罗马书10:9 - 10 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord 耶稣 and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, 你会得救的. 10 因为人心里相信就称义, 口里承认，就得救.
哥林多前书6:9 - 11 Do you not k现在 that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? 不要被欺骗了. 不是私通，不是偶像崇拜者，奸夫，也不是 同性恋者，不是鸡奸者， 10 偷窃, 也不贪婪的, 也没有醉酒的, 辱骂的, 勒索人的，不能承受神的国.
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity.
马可福音12:28 - 31 这时一个文士来了, 听见他们一同辩论, 他们就知道耶稣回答得好, 问他, "这是第一条诫命?” 29 耶稣回答说，第一条诫命是: q以色列啊，你要听!耶和华我们神是独一的主. 30 你应该r你要尽心爱耶和华你的神, 用你所有的灵魂, 用你所有的心思, 用你所有的力量.这是第一条戒律. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’再没有比这两条诫命更大的了.”
路加福音6:31 - 你们愿意人怎样待你们，你们也要怎样待人.
Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of Burley Bible Church.
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, 独家联盟, 正如圣经所描述的那样.
创世纪2:18-25 耶和华上帝说:"它是 一个人孤单是不好的; 我要为他造一个帮手，与他相比.” 19从地里出来的 Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and 带来了 他们 to 亚当，看看他会怎么称呼他们. 无论亚当怎样称呼每一种生物 是 它的名字. 20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. 只是亚当没有遇见一个帮助他的. 21 于是耶和华神造了一个 deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs把肉合在原处. 22 于是耶和华神从人身上所取下来的肋骨 造了一个女人，带她到那人面前. 23 亚当说:"这 is 现在 我的骨头中的骨头 And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called 女人, 因为她是e从人身上取出来.” 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 他们要成为一体. 25 那人和他的妻子都赤身露体，并不羞耻.)
We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other.

哥林多前书7:2-5 不过, 因为性不道德, 各人当各有自己的妻子, 妇人当各有自己的丈夫. 3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her 自己的 body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his 自己的 body, but the wife does. 5 不可彼此亏负，除非暂时合意, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and 再聚在一起，这样 撒旦不会因为你缺乏自制而诱惑你.
希伯来书13:4 - 婚姻在众人中间为体面，床也不污秽。 惟有淫乱行淫的，神必审判.
We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.
创世纪1:26-27 然后上帝说: 我们要照着自己的形像造人, according to Our likeness; let 他们 have dominion over the fish of the sea, 在天上的飞鸟之上R，越过牛，越过 全地和地上一切所爬的.” 27 所以上帝创造了人类 在他的 自己的 image; in the image of God He created him; 他创造了男人和女人.
Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
我们相信任何形式的性不道德(包括通奸), 淫乱, 同性恋行为, 双性恋行为, 人兽交, 乱伦, 和使用色情)是有罪的，冒犯了上帝.
