Articles Of Faith


1. We believe in only one true and living God, as He is revealed to us in Holy Scriptures--Father, Son and Holy Ghost.


2. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the Words of God and the only rule of all saving knowledge and obedience.


3. We believe in the doctrine of election according to the foreknowledge of God.


4. We believe in the doctrine of original sin.


5. We believe in man's impotency to rescue himself from the fallen state he is in by his own free will or ability.


6. We believe that sinners are justified in the sight of God, only by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ.


7. We believe the elect, according to the foreknowledge of God, will be called, converted, regenerated and sanctified by the Holy Spirit.


8. We beleive the saints will preserve and never fall finally away.


9. We believe that baptism and the Lord's supper are ordinances of Jesus Christ, and that true believers are the only subjects of these ordanances, and that the true mode of Baptism is immersion.


10. We believe in the resurrection of the dead and the general judgement.


11. We believe that the punishment of the wicked will be everlasting and that the joys of the righteous shall be eternal.


12. We believe that no minister has the right to adminster the ordinances except by those who have been regularly baptized and called of God and come under the imposition of hands by the presbytery.
