Articles Of Faith

  • We believe in the one true and living God, and that there are three persons in the God-head: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost ( 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 5:7).
  • We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired written Word of God and the only rule of faith, and that the New Testament is the rule of practice for the Church of the living God (2 Timothy 3:16).
  • We believe in the doctrine of eternal and particular redemption (Ephesians 1:4-5; 2 Thessalonians 2:13).
  • We believe in the doctrine of original sin (Romans 3:10-19; Psalm 51:5).
  • We believe in man’s impotency to recover himself from the state he is in by his own free will and ability (Jeremiah 13:23; John 5:40; 6:44; Romans 9:16).
  • We believe sinners are justified in the sight of God only by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:24-26; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
  • We believe God’s elect shall be called, converted, and sanctified by the Holy Ghost (John 3:8; 5:25; 6:37-40; 1 Corinthians 1:9).
  • We believe the saints shall be preserved in grace and never finally fall away (Jeremiah 32:40; Philippians 1:6; 1 Peter 1:5).
  • We believe baptism and the Lord’s supper are ordinances and washing of the saint’s feet is an example of Jesus Christ; that true believers are the only subjects of ordinances and examples and that they should observe them; that the only mode of baptism is immersion (Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34; John 13:4-17; Acts 8:36-39).
  • We believe in the resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust. The dead in Christ shall rise first. We which are alive and remain shall be changed and caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air (Acts 24:15; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
  • We believe the punishment of the wicked will be everlasting and the joys of the righteous will be eternal (Matthew 25:46; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-10).
  • We believe no minister has the right to administer the ordinances of baptism or the Lord’s supper who has not been regularly (orderly) called and come under the imposition of hands by a regularly constituted presbytery (1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6)
