Articles of Faith

1. We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the revealed and inspired word of God, and the only rule of faith and practice, particularly the New Testament for saints under this dispensation. (2nd Timothy 3:16-17, 2nd Peter 1:21, Psalms 12:6-7)

2. We believe in one true and living God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and these three are one. (1st John 5:7, Matthew 28:19, 2nd Corinthians 13:14)

3. We believe that, in the transgression of Adam, he fell under the just condemnation of God’s holy law, that all the human race was corrupted in and by him, and that it is impossible for any of them to recover themselves or gain the favor of God by their own works or an act of their own will. (John 6:44, Romans 3:9-20, Romans 5:12 & 18, Ephesians 2:1)

4. We believe God, before the foundation of the world, unconditionally elected a definite number of the human family in Jesus Christ and ordained them to eternal life and glory. (Romans 8:28-30, Romans 9:11-13, Ephesians 1:4-6, 1st Thessalonians 1:4, Acts 13:48)

5. We believe Jesus Christ suffered and died in the room and stead of His elect only and that His elect are justified in the sight of God by the imputed righteousness of Christ. (Acts 20:28, John 10:11, Hebrews 10:14, Romans 5:8-10, 2nd Corinthians 5:21)

6. We believe that the Holy Spirit effectually calls, regenerates, and sanctifies all the elect of God. (John 5:25, John 6:37, 2nd Timothy 1:9, Jude 1)

7. We believe that all the elect shall be preserved in grace by the power of God and never fall away. (John 10:27-29, Romans 8:30, Jude 1, John 6:38-39)

8. We believe that good works and obedience to the commands of God are well pleasing in His sight and should be maintained; but they are to be considered only as evidence of a gracious state and are not a condition for eternal salvation. (Ephesians 2:8-10, Hebrews 13:16, James 2:17-18, Galatians 5:22-23, Matthew 5:13-16)

9. We believe that Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of Jesus Christ, and that true believers are the only fit subjects for baptism, and immersion is the only proper mode. (Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:37-39, Luke 22:19-20, 1st Corinthians 11:23-26)

10. We believe that as our Lord and Savior washed His disciples’ feet, we ought to wash one another’s feet. 
(John 13:4-17, 1st Timothy 5:9-10)

11. We believe in the resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust, and a general judgement; and the happiness of the righteous and the suffering of the wicked will be everlasting. (John 5:28-29, Revelation 20:12-15, Matthew 25:31-46)
