Our Basis of Faith

Bible

  • The eternity, equality and distinct personality of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, in the unity of the Godhead.
  • The plenary and verbal inspiration of the Old and New Testaments, and their infallible authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice.
  • The fall of mankind in Adam – their guilt and condemnation – together with their entire and universal depravity, by which they were alienated from God, and are unable, in and of themselves to turn to him.
  • Eternal and personal election to salvation.
  • Particular redemption by the vicarious sacrifice of Christ.
  • Justification by grace, through faith, by the imputed righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Regeneration and sanctification by the direct agency of the Holy Spirit, through the instrumentality of divine truth. Saving faith is the sovereign and gracious gift of God.
  • The absolute necessity for a holy life, as the result of true faith and the evidence of regeneration.
  • The final perseverance of true believers.
  • The preaching of the gospel to every creature of the fallen race of Adam is a divine command and a solemn obligation.
  • The necessity of baptism by immersion, on a profession of repentance and faith, as a condition precedent to church fellowship and admission to the Lord’s table. The congregational order of the churches.
  • The resurrection of the dead and the universal judgment, the everlasting punishment of the wicked and the everlasting happiness of the righteous.
