What Do We Believe?

The organization believes:

1. In one true God, existing eternally as one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

2. That the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the unique, inerrant, inspired Word of God, and is the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

3. In the sovereignty and active rule of God in creation, history, revelation, redemption, and final judgement.

4. That man was created by God in His image, but that since Adam’s sin, all men are sinful and subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

5. That Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, fully human and fully divine, eternally existing as God, yet born in time of a virgin; and that He lived a sinless and perfect life.

6. In the historic death of Jesus as the full and only atonement for our sins, in His bodily
resurrection from the dead, and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, where He
rules as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

7. That men are justified only by the grace of God through faith alone, only on the basis of the death of Christ.

8. That those justified are also sanctified, only by the grace of God, through faith alone, and
whose lives are characterized by good works.

9. That the Holy Spirit is present and effective in applying the work of Christ to believers in
regenerating and sanctifying them so that they serve Christ in all aspects of their lives.

10. In one invisible, universal church, the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong, and in particular visible Churches governed by officers with the authority to rule in matters of belief and discipline.

11. In the visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in glory.

12. In the resurrection of the redeemed to the enjoyment of God forever in His presence, and the resurrection of the unredeemed to judgement and everlasting punishment in hell.

For our full doctrinal statement, see the Westminster Confession of Faith.  We believe this document is a faithful summary of the teachings of Scripture, but that it is subject to the Bible alone as the final authority.
