Statement of Faith

 

By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

1 John 3:16-18

 

Statement of Faith

Note: The following is only a basic doctrinal statement. Full details, with Scripture references of our doctrine can be found in the 1689 London Baptist Confession. To view that go to : www.vor.org/truth/1689/1689bc00.html

 

What We Believe:

  • The Bible is God’s revelation to man, divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, inerrant in the original documents, infallible and God-breathed. There is only one true interpretation of Scripture and that is the literal, historical interpretation.
  • There is only one true and living God, existing in the three persons of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit . God is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent. He is sovereign over all matters in all of creation and beyond.
  • All men are born into sin and have incurred the penalty of spiritual and physical death and are subject to the wrath of God. Man is inherently corrupt and incapable of choosing or doing what is acceptable to a holy and righteous God. Man is therefore hopelessly lost and his salvation is wholly dependent on God’s grace through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Salvation is wholly of God by grace on the basis of the redemption of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not on the basis of human merit or works.
  • Those who have faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ have been freed from the punishment, penalty and power of sin.
  • Regeneration in a person’s life will be made evident by his obedience to God and by his good works.
  • All the redeemed, once saved are kept by God’s power and are secure in Christ forever.
