What We Believe
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is perfect treasure of heavenly instructions; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter.
The True God
We believe the scriptures teach that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is Jehovah, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead, there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost; equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
The Fall of Man
We believe the scriptures teach that man was created in holiness, under the law of his Maker; but by voluntary transgression fell from that holy and happy state; in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint, but by choice.
God's Purpose of Grace
We believe the scriptures teach that elections is the eternal purpose of God, according to which his graciously regenerates, sanctifies and saves sinners.
The Way of Salvation
We believe the scriptures teach that salvation of sinners is wholly of grace; through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God; who according to the will of the Father, assumed by nature, yet without sin, honored the divine law by his personal obedience, and by his death made a full atonement for our sins; that having risen from the dead, he is now enthroned in heaven.
We believe the scriptures teach that regenerations, or the new birth, is that change wrought in the soul by the Holy Spirit, by which a new nature and a spiritual life, not before possessed, are imparted, and the person becomes a new creation in Christ Jesus.
We believe the scriptures teach that repentance is a personal act, prompted by the Spirit, and consists in a godly sorrow for sin. Since none are sinless in this life, repentance needs to be often repeated.
We believe the scriptures teach that faith, as an evangelical grace wrought by the Spirit is the medium through which Christ is received by the soul as its sacrifice and Savior.
We believe the scriptures teach that the great Gospel blessing which Christ secures to such as believe in him is justification; that justification includes the pardon of sin, and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness; that it is bestowed, not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done, but solely through faith in the Redeemer's blood.
We believe the scriptures teach that adoption is a gracious act, by which the Father, for the sake of Christ, accepts believers to the estate and condition of children, by a new and spiritual birth; sending the Spirit of adoption into their hearts, whereby they become members of the family of God, and entitled to all the rights, privileges, and promises of the children, and if children, then heirs of God, and joint heirs with Jesus Christ to the heritage of the saints of earth, and an inheritance reserved in heaven for them.
We believe the scriptures teach that sanctification is the process by which according to the will of God, we are made partakers of his holiness; that it is progressive work; that it is begun in regeneration and carried on in the hearts of believers by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, the Healer and Comforter, in the continual use of the appointed means especially the Word of God, self-examination, self-denial, watchfulness, and prayer.
The Perseverance of Saints
We believe the scriptures teach that such only are real believers as endure to the end; that their persevering attachment to Christ is the grand mark which distinguishes them from superficial professors; that a special Providence watches over their welfare; and they are kept by the power of God through faith and salvation.
The Law and the Gospel
We believe the scriptures teach that the Low of God is the eternal and unchangeable rule of his moral government; that it is holy, just and good, and that the inability which the scriptures ascribe to fallen men to fulfill its precepts, arises entirely from unfeigned obedience to the holy law, in one great end of the Gospel, and of the means of Grace connected with the establishment of the visible church.
