Articles of Faith

The Articles of Faith listed below were adopted by our founding members in 1932 and still represent our current beliefs.

1.We believe in only one true and living God, and the trinity of persons in the God-head – Father, Son, and Holy Ghost and yet not three, but one God. –Deut. 6:4, Mal. 2:10, I Cor. 8:6, I John 5:7

2.We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the divine authority and the only rule of faith and practice. – 2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21

3.We believe that the whole of the human family were created in Adam, their seminal head and that all alike fell in him by his transgression of the law, and all partake of his sinful nature. – Romans 5:12-18-19, I Cor. 15:21-22

4.We believe in a covenant of redemption by the Holy Trinity and that a definite number of fallen sons and daughters of Adam were chosen in Christ before the world began, and that they should be holy and without blame before him in love. – 2 Sam. 23:5, Heb. 13:20-21, Eph. 1:4-12, John 6:37-40, Psa. 139:15-16, John 17:1-4
