Articles of Faith

  1. We believe in the True and Living God of the Bible, and that there is a trinity of persons in the Godhead: the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and yet there are not three gods, but one God. (Deuteronomy 6.4; Isaiah 44.6; Luke 1.25; John 1.1; 14.16-18; 1 Corinthians 8.5-6)
  2. We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God and the only rule of faith and practice. (Romans 15.4, 11.2; 2 Timothy 3.16-17)
  3. We believe that in the fall of Adam and the imputation of his sinful nature to his posterity, that man was rendered incapable of recovering himself, by his own free will and ability, to a righteous state, and that without the shed blood of Jesus Christ, he is unacceptable before a perfect and holy God. (Genesis 2.16-17; 3.22-24; 1 Corinthians 15.22)
  4. We believe in the everlasting love of God to His people and the eternal election of a definite number of the human race to grace and glory, and that there was a covenant of grace and redemption made between the Father and the Son before the world began, in which the salvation of the elect was secured, and they in particular are redeemed through the death and resurrection of Christ. (Jeremiah 31.3; Isaiah 49.6; Matthew 25.33-34; John 15.19; 17.2; 2 Timothy 2.18-19; Ephesians 1.4; 1 Thessalonians 4.16-17)
  5. We believe that sinners are justified in the sight of God only by the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to them. (Romans 4.6-8, 24-25; 5.9-10)
  6. We believe that all who were chosen in Christ will be effectually called, regenerated, sanctified, supported by the Spirit, and kept by the power of God, so that they shall be preserved in Jesus Christ, and not one of them shall be finally lost. (John 6.37-39, 45; Romans 8.28-30; Hebrews 2.11-13; Jude 1)
  7. We believe that it is the responsibility of Christians to show love and support to God’s children in this world, and that by helping others and sharing the good news of the gospel, we may be of service in God’s Kingdom. (Matthew 25.35-40; James 1.26-27)
  8. We believe that good works are the fruit of the Spirit and follow after regeneration and that they can only justify us in the sight of men and angels and are evidence of our gracious state. (Ephesians 1.4-7; 5.9-11; Matthew 7.17-20; Galatians 5.22)
  9. We believe that there will be a resurrection of the dead and a general judgment, and that the happiness of the righteous and the punishment of the wicked will be eternal. (Matthew 25.31-46)
