What We Believe

 

Declaration of Faith

We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men Divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction, that it has God for its Author, Salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter, that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union and Supreme Standard by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions should be tried.

Of the True God

We believe that there is one and only one living and true God, and 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.

Of the Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in holiness under the law of his Maker but by voluntary transgressions fell from that holy and happy state, in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners not by constraint but choice 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 without defense or excuse.

Of the Way of Salvation

We believe that the Salvation of sinners is wholly of Grace, through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God, who by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon him our nature yet without sin, honored the Divine law by his personal obedience and by His Death made full Atonement for our sins that having risen from the dead is now enthroned in heaven and uniting in his wonderful person the tenderest sympathies with Divine perfections, he is every way qualified to be a suitable, a compassionate and All sufficient Savior.
