Our Convictions

FAITH

image placeholder

Saving faith is the belief of God's authority, of whatever is revealed in His Word, and receiving and resting upon Christ alone for justification, salvation and eternal life. It is worked in the heart by the Holy Spirit, and is accompanied by all other saving graces, and leads to a life of holiness.
Romans 1:16-17; Hebrews 11:1-6

 

 

JUSTIFICATION

image placeholderJustification is the gracious act by which God fully and completely forgives sinners and imparts to them the righteousness of Jesus Christ at the moment they believe. Justification is by faith in Jesus Christ. It is bestowed only on those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:21-26, 5:1-2

 

 

SANCTIFICATION

Those who have been regenerated are also sanctified by God's word and Spirit dwelling in them. This sanctification is progressive through the supply of Divine strength, which all Christians seek to obtain, pressing after a heavenly life in obedience to all Christ's commands.
1 Corinthians 1:30; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 12:14

PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS

Those whom God has accepted in the Beloved, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never totally nor finally fall away from the state of grace, but shall certainly persevere to the end. They may fall, through neglect and temptation, into sin, and grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the Church, and temporal judgments on themselves. They shall, however, be renewed again unto repentance, and be kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.
John 10:27-30; Philippians 1:6

THE CHURCH

The Lord Jesus is the Head of the Church, which is composed of all His true disciples, and in Him is invested supremely all power for its government. According to His commandment, Christians are to associate themselves into local churches. To each of these churches He gives needful authority for administering the order, discipline and worship which He has appointed. The regular officers of a Church are Pastors or Elders, and Deacons.
Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 10:23-25; Acts 14:23; 1 Timothy 3:1-13

BAPTISM

Baptism is an ordinance of the Lord Jesus, obligatory upon every believer. The believer is immersed in water in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, as a sign of his fellowship with the death and resurrection of Christ, of remission of sins, and of his giving himself up to God to live and walk in newness of life. It is prerequisite to church membership and to participation in the Lord's Supper.
Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 2:41-42

THE LORD'S SUPPER

The Lord's Supper is an ordinance of Jesus Christ, to be administered with the elements of bread and wine, and to be observed by His churches till the end of the world. It is in no sense a sacrifice, but is designed to commemorate His death and to confirm the faith and graces of Christians. It is to be a bond, pledge and renewal of their communion with Him and of their church fellowship.
1 Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-32

RELIGIOUS WORSHIP AND THE LORD'S DAY

Religious worship is to be given to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and to Him alone. Since man's fall into sin, worship cannot be rendered to God without a mediator; and the only accepted mediator is Jesus Christ. The only acceptable way of worshipping the true God is appointed by Himself, in accordance with His own will. The Lord's Day is a Christian institution for regular observance, and should be employed in exercise of worship and spiritual devotion, both public and private.
Exodus 20:1-6; Deuteronomy 12:32; 1 Timothy 2:5; Isaiah 58:13-14

CHRISTIAN LIBERTY AND LIBERTY OF CONSCIENCE

Christ has purchased for all believers a liberty inherent in the gospel. It comprises freedom from the guilt of sin, from the condemnation that follows upon guilt, from the wrath of God, and from the severity and curse of God's law. It includes free access to God and the yielding of obedience to Him, not with the fear of a slave for his master, but with a childlike love and readiness. God alone is Lord of the conscience. He has set it free from all obligation to receive or obey any doctrines and demands of men which are in any respect in opposition to His Word or not contained in it.
John 8:31-36; Galatians 5:13; Galatians 6:7-8

MARRIAGE

Marriage is to be between one man and one woman. It is not lawful for any man to have more than one wife, nor for any woman to have more than one husband, at one and the same time. God instituted marriage for the mutual help of husband and wife, for the increase of mankind in accordance with His laws, and for the prevention of immorality. It is the duty of Christians to marry only "in the Lord".
Genesis 2:21-25; Matthew 19:1-9; 1 Corinthians 7:1-7, 39

THE RESURRECTION

The bodies of men after death return to dust, but their spirits return immediately to God - the righteous to rest with Him; the wicked to be reserved under darkness to the judgment. At the last day, the bodies of all the dead, both just and unjust, will be raised.
John 5:25-29; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

THE JUDGMENT

God has appointed a day when he will judge the world by Jesus Christ and every one shall receive according to his deeds: the wicked shall go into everlasting punishment; the righteous into everlasting life.
Matthew 25:31-46; Acts 17:30-31; Revelation 20:11-15
