Confession of Faith
Of the Scriptures
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men as they were inspired by the Holy Spirit of God, and is the perfect treasure of heavenly instruction (1); that it has God for its author, salvation for its end (2), and truth without any mixture of error for its matter (3); that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us (4); and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union (5), and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried (6).

Of the True God
We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth (1); inexpressibly glorious in holiness (2), and worthy of all possible honor, glory and praise (3); that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (4); equal in every divine perfection (5), and executing harmonious offices in the great work of redemption (6).

- 2 Cor. 13:14; Rev. 1:4-5; comp. 2, 7
Of the Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in image and likeness of God (1); but by voluntary transgression through disobedience fell from that holy and happy state (2); in consequence of which all people are now sinners (3), not by constraint, but choice (4); being by nature utterly void of that holiness required by the law of God, positively inclined to evil; and therefore under just condemnation to eternal ruin (5), without defense or excuse (6).

- Romans 1:18, 32; 2:1-16; Gal. 3:10; Matt. 20:15
- Romans 1:20; 3:19; Gal. 3:22
Of the Way of Salvation
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace (1), through the mediation of the Son of God (2); who by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon Him our nature, yet without sin (3); honored the divine law by His personal obedience (4), and by His death made a full atonement for our sins (5); that having risen from the death, He is now enthroned in heaven; seated at the right hand of the Father/God.

- Col. 3:1; Col. 2:9; Heb. 2:18; 7:26; Psa. 89:19
Of The Blessing of The Gospel
We believe that the great gospel blessing which Christ (1) secures to such as believe in Him is justification (2); that justification includes the pardon of sin (3), and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness (4); that it is bestowed, not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done, but solely through faith in Jesus Christ and His Redeeming blood (5); by virtue of which faith His perfect righteousness is freely imputed to us of God.
- John 1:16; Eph. 3:8
- Acts 13:39; Isa. 3:11-12; Rom. 8:1
- Zech. 13:1; Matt. 9:6; Acts 10:43

- Phil. 3:7-9, 2 Cor. 1:30-31; Matt. 6:33; 1 Tim. 4:8
Of the Freeness of Salvation
We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free to all by the gospel (1); that it is the immediate duty of all to accept them by and through obedient faith (2); and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth but his own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the gospel of Jesus Christ (3); which rejection involves him in an aggravated condemnation (4).
- Rev. 22:17; Luke 14:1
- 2. Mark 1:15; Rom. 1:15-1
- 3. John 5:40; Matt. 23:37; Rom. 9:32; Prov. 1:24; Acts 13:4
- 4. John 3:19; Matt. 11:20; Luke 19:27
Of Grace in Regeneration
We believe that, in order to be saved, sinners must be regenerated, or born again (1); that regeneration consists in transformation of the mind (2); that it is effected in a manner above our comprehension by the power of the Holy Spirit, in connection with divine truth (3), so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the gospel (4); and that its proper evidence appears in the holy fruits of repentance, and faith, and newness of life (5).
- John 3:3, 6-7; 1 Cor. 1:14; Rev. 8:7-9; 21:2
- 2 Cor. 5:17; Ezek. 36:26; Deut. 30:6; Rom. 2:28-29; 5:5

- 1 Pet. 1:22-25; 1 John 5:1; Eph. 4:20-24; Col. 3:9-11
- Gal. 5:16-23; Eph. 3:14-21; Matt. 3:8-10; 7:20; 1 John 5:4, 18
Of Repentance and Faith
We believe that repentance and faith are sacred duties, and also inseparable graces, wrought in our souls by the regenerating Spirit of God (1); whereby being deeply convinced of our guilt, danger, and helplessness, and of the way of salvation by Christ (2), we turn to God with unfeigned contrition, confession, and supplication for mercy (3); at the same time heartily receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as our Prophet, Priest, and King, and relying on Him alone as the only and all-sufficient Savior (4
- Mark 1:15; Acts 11:18
- John 16:8; Acts 2:37-38; 16:30-3
- Luke 18:13; 15:18-21; James 4:7-10; 2 Cor. 7:11; Rom.10:12-1
- Acts 3:22-23: Heb. 4:14; Psa. 2:6; Heb. 1:8; 8:25; 2 Tim. 1:1
Of the Purpose of God’s Grace
We believe that election is the eternal purpose of God, according to which he graciously regenerates, sanctifies, and saves sinners (1); that being perfectly consistent with the free agency of man, it comprehends all the means in connection with the end (2); that it is a most glorious display of God’s sovereign goodness, being infinitely free, wise, holy, and unchangeable (3); that it utterly excludes boasting, and promotes humility, love, prayer, praise, trust in God, and active imitation of His free mercy (4); that it encourages the use of means in the highest degree (5); that it may be ascertained by its effects in all who truly believe the gospel (6); that it is the foundation of Christian assurance (7); and that to ascertain it with regard to ourselves demands and deserves the utmost diligence (8).
- 2 Tim. 1:8-9; Eph. 1:3-14; 1 Pet. 1:1-2; Rom. 11:5-6; John 15:15; 1 John 4:19; Hos. 12:9
- 2 Thess. 2:13-14; Acts 13:48; John 10:16; Matt. 20:16; Acts 15:14
- Matt. 20:15; Eph. 1:11; Rom. 9:23-24: Jer. 31:3; Rom. 11:28-29; James 1:17-18; 2 Tim. 1:9; Rom. 11:32-36
- 1 Cor. 4:7; 1:26-31; Rom. 3:27; 4:16; Col. 3:12; 1 Cor. 3:5-7; 15:10; 1 Pet. 5:10; Acts 1:24; 1 Thess. 2:13; 1 Pet. 2:9; Luke 18:7; John 15:16; Eph. 1:16; 1 Thess. 2:12
- 2 Tim. 2:10; 1 Cor. 9:22; Rom. 8:28-30; John 6:37-40; 2 Pet. 1:10
- 1 Thess. 1:4-10
- Isa. 42:16; Rom. 11:29
- 2 Pet. 1:10-11; Phil. 3:12; Heb. 6:11
We believe that sanctification is the process by which, according to the will of God, we are made partakers of His holiness (1); that it is a progressive work (2); that it is begun in regeneration (3); and that it is carried on in the hearts of believers by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, the Sealer and Comforter, in the continual use of the appointed means-especially the Word of God, self-examination, self-control.
- 1 Thess. 4:3; 5:23; 2 Cor. 7:1; 13:9;

- Eph. 4:11-12; 1 Pet. 2:2; 2 Pet. 3:18; 2 Cor. 13:5; Luke 11:35; 9:23; Matt. 26:41; Eph. 6:18
Of the Perseverance of Saints
We believe that only those who endure unto the end shall be saved (1); that their persevering attachment to Christ is the grand mark which distinguishes them from superficial professors (2); that a special providence watches over their welfare (3); and they are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation (4).
- John 8:31; 1 John 2:27-28; 3:9; 5:18
- 1 John 2:19; John 13:18; Matt. 13:20-21; John 6:66-69; Job 17:9

- Jude 24-25; Heb. 1:14; 2 Kings 6:16; Heb. 13:5; 1 John 4:4
Of the Harmony of the Law and the Gospel
We believe that the law of God is the eternal and unchangeable rule of His moral government (1); that it is holy, just, and good (2); and that the inability which the Scriptures ascribe to fallen men to fulfill its precepts arises entirely from their love of sin (3); to deliver them from which, and to restore them through a Mediator to unfeigned obedience to the holy law, is one great end of the gospel, and of the means of grace connected with the establishment of the visible church (4).
- Matt. 5:17; Luke 16:17; Rom. 3:20; 4:15
- Gal. 3:21; Psa. 119
- Josh. 24:19; Jer. 13:23; John 6:44; 5:44
- 1 Tim. 1:5; Heb. 8:10; Jude 20-21; Heb. 12:14; Matt. 16:17-18; 1 Cor. 12:28
Of the Gospel to the Church
We believe that a visible Church of Christ is a congregation of baptized believers (1), associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel (2); observing the ordinances of Christ (3); governed by His laws (4), and exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word and The Holy Spirit (5); that its only scriptural officers are pastors and elders, and deacons (6), whose qualifications, claims, and duties are defined in the letters to Timothy and Titus.
- 1 Cor. 1:1-13; Matt. 18:17; Acts 5:11; 8:1; 11:31; 1 Cor. 4:17; 14:23; 3 John 9; 1 Tim. 3:5

- Acts 14:23; 15:22; 1 Tim. 3; Titus 1
Of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion in water of a believer (1), unto the name of the Father, and Son, and Holy Spirit (2); to show forth, in a solemn and beautiful emblem, our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior, with its effect in our death to sin and resurrection to a new life (3); and that baptism is the visible sign of membership in the Body of Christ (4). We believe that in the Lord’s Supper, believers in Jesus, by the sacred use of bread and wine, are to commemorate together the dying love of Christ (5); proceeded always by solemn self-examination (6).
- Acts 8:36-39; Matt. 3:5-6; John 3:22-23; 4:1-2; Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; 8:12; 16:32-34; 18:8

- 1 Cor. 11:28; 5:1, 8; 10:3-32; 11:17-32; John 6:26-71
Of Civil Government
We believe that civil government is of divine appointment, for the interests and good order of human society (1); and that nations and countries are to be prayed for, conscientiously honored and obeyed (2); except only in things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ (3) who is the only Lord of the conscience, and the King of the kings of the earth (4).

- Rom. 14:4; Rev. 19:16; Psa. 72:11; Psa. 2; Rom. 14:9-13
Of the Righteous and the Wicked
We believe that there is a radical and essential difference between the righteous and the wicked (1); that such only as through faith are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and sanctified by the Spirit of our God, are truly righteous in His esteem (2); while all such as continue in impenitence and unbelief are in His sight wicked, and under the curse (3); and this distinction holds among men both in and after death (4).

Jesus is Coming Soon
We believe that,(1)At the last day Christ will descend from heaven (2), and raise the dead from the grave (3); that a solemn separation will then take place (4); that the wicked will be judged to endless punishment, and the righteous to endless joy (5); and that this judgment will fix forever the final state of men in heaven or hell, on principles of righteousness (6).
