Articles of Faith

1. We believe in one true and living God, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, and these three are one. (1 John 5:7, John 1:1)

4. We believe in the doctrine of original sin that Adam’s fall in the garden plunged his entire posterity into death in trespasses and sins and that man cannot, of his own free will and ability, recover himself from the fallen state that he is in by nature. (Romans 5:12, Genesis 2:17Romans 4:16, John 6:44)

8. We believe that Jesus Christ who is the Head and Lawgiver has instituted the ordinance of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which are to be perpetually observed by the Church to the end of the world. (Isaiah 33:22, James 4:12, John 13:17)

9. We believe in the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment and that the joys of the righteous and the punishment of the wicked will be everlasting. (John 5:28-291 Corinthians 15:19, Daniel 12:2)

10. We believe that no minister has a right to the administration of the ordinances except those who have been regularly baptized and called of God and have come under the imposition of hands by a presbytery and that only so long as they continue in the faith once delivered to the saints. (Acts 13:2-3, Titus 1:5-6)
