Articles of Faith

1. We believe there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and that these three are one. Duet.6:4; Mal.2:10: 1 Cor.8:6; 1 John 5:7.
2. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired words of God, and the only rule of faith and practice and we prefer the translation made under the authority of King James. 2 Tim.3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21.
3. We believe that the whole of the human family were created in Adam, their seminal head, and that all alike fell in him by his transgression of the law, and all partake of his sinful nature, and all are born into the world sinners by nature. Acts 17:26; Romans 5:12,18.
4. We believe in a covenant of redemption by the Holy Trinity and that a definite number of the fallen sons and daughters of Adam were chosen in Christ before the world began, that they should be holy and without blame before him in love. 2 Sam. 23:5; Psa. 89:28; Heb. 13:20; Eph. 1:4; John 6:37-40
5. We believe that all the chosen in Christ shall be called, regenerated, and sanctified by the Holy Spirit and that they will be justified in the sight of God by the righteousness of Christ imputed to them, and will be preserved through grace and never finally fall away. John 6:45; Rom. 8:28-30; 2 Thes. 2:13; John 10:28,29.
6. We believe that evangelical faith is the gift of God and good works are the fruit of faith, and justify us in the sight of men and angels, as evidence of our gracious state. Eph. 2:8, 10; Gal. 5:22; Rom. 5:1; Heb. 11:6.
7. We believe that all the Spiritual blessings that are essential for the consummation of the eternal salvation of the elect were given them in Christ before the world began, and in time bestowed upon them by virtue of His atoning for them. Eph. 1:3; 2 Tim. 2:19; Rom. 5:11.
8. We believe that baptism and the Lord's supper and washing of the saints' feet are ordinances of Jesus Christ and that true believers are the only subjects of baptism and that immersion is the only Apostolic mode. Matt. 3:16; Matt. 26:26,28; Acts 8:12,37,39; Rom. 6:4; John 13; 1 Tim. 5:10; Matt. 28:20.
9. We believe that no minister has any right to administer the ordinances of the gospel but one who is regularly baptized and called of God, and has come under the imposition of the hands of the presbytery. Acts 13:2; Heb. 5:4; Matt. 19:28.
10. We believe that none but regularly baptized believers have a right to commune at the Lord's table. Luke 22:29,30; Matt. 26:20,29.
11. We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust; the just shall be fashioned like the glorious body of Christ; the unjust to everlasting shame and contempt. 1 John 3:2; Romans 8:11; Philippians 3:21; 1 Cor. 15:49; Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29.
12. We believe it disorder for any member of the Church to affiliate with any secret, oath-bound institution, or any institution other than the Church which contains a form of worship. Ephesians 5:11-12; Matthew 5:34-37; James 5:12.
13. We believe that Christ set in the Church everything it needs and that aids, and auxiliaries of any nature are unscriptural. Deut 4:2; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23; 1 Corinthians 11:1-2; 2 Thes 2:15; 2 Thes 3:6.
