Articles of Faith

  • We believe in one true and living God as He is revealed to us in the Holy Scriptures and that in the unity of the Godhead there are three distinct persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. 
  • We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the words of God. 
  • We believe in the doctrine of Original Sin. 
  • We believe in man’s impotency to recover himself from his fallen state by his own free will or ability. 
  • We believe that sinners are justified in the sight of God only by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ. 
  • We believe that the elect, according to the foreknowledge of God, will be called, converted, regenerated and sanctified by the Holy Spirit. 
  • We believe that God's elect people will be preserved in the blood of Jesus and that not one will ever perish. 
  • We believe that Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of Jesus Christ and that believers are the only subjects of the ordinances. 
  • We believe in the resurrection of the dead and a general judgment. 
  • We believe that punishment of the wicked will be everlasting and that the joys of the righteous shall be eternal. 
  • We believe that no minister has the right to administer the ordinances except those who have been legally baptized and called of God and who have come under the imposition of hands by the presbytery. 
  • We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is a divine institution and therefore should have no organic connection with any institution not authorized in the word of God.
