Organizational Statement of Faith


(iii) Statement of Faith 1. The Divine Inspiration, Authority and Sufficiency of the Holy Scriptures: 2 Tim. 3:15-17; I Pet. 1:10-12; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; Psalm 19:7-11. 2. The Unity of the Godhead with the distinction of Persons in that Unity, namely the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, co-equal and co-eternal, to Whom equal honor is due: Deut. 6:4; Gen. 1:2,26; John 1:1,2; John 5:17,22,23; John 14:25,26;John 16:7,27,28; Phil. 2:6; Heb. 1:1-3,8. 3. (a) that the Son of God truly became man being begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and His righteousness is imputed to all believers. John 14:3; Rom. 4:22-24; Rom. 8:3; Gal. 4:4; Matt. 1:20-25; Luke 1:35. (b) That His death was a sacrifice to God, and a propitiation for the remission of the sins of His people: Rom. 4:25; 2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 9:24-28; Heb. 10:12-14. (c) That He was raised from the dead: Matt. 28:5-7; 1 Cor. 15:20. (d) That He ascended to the right hand of God, and is now the all-sufficient High Priest of His people: Mark 16:19,20; Luke 24:50,51; Acts 1:9; Eph. 4:8-10; Heb. 4:14-16; Heb. 7:25. (e) That He will come again to receive His people unto Himself and to set up His Kingdom: John 14:3; 1 Thess 4:13-18; Luke 1:32, 33; Isaiah 9:6, 7; Dan. 2:44, 45; Dan. 7:13, 14. 4. That in consequence if the fall of Adam man became "lost" and at "enmity against God"; that he is also "without strength" to do the will of God: Psalm 53:2,3; Luke 19:10; Rom. 3:19; Rom. 5:6,12-19; Rom. 8:5-7. 5. (a) The need of the Holy Spirit's work in regeneration and sanctification: John 3:5-8; John 16:8-11; Tit 3:4-7; 2 Thess. 2:13, 14; 1 Pet. 1:2. (b) Sanctification is a state to be coveted, but the doctrine of perfection in the flesh is contrary to the teaching of Holy Scripture: 2 Tim. 2:21; 1 John 1:8 6. (a) That the justification of the sinner before God is by faith alone: Rom. 3:21-26; Rom. 4:4, 5; Rom. 5:1; Gal. 2:16. (b) That every justified one is also born of God: John 1:12, 13; James 1:18; 1 Peter 1:23. (c) That such new birth should result in and be made evident by holiness of life and good works: Eph. 2:10; Eph. 4:24; Titus 3:4-8. 7. (a) that at death the spirit of man does not cease to exist or become unconscious. Eccl. 12:7; Luke 16:19-31; Luke 23:43; 2 Cor. 5:6-8. (b) That the dead will be raised either to life or to condemnation and that the blessedness of the righteous and the punishment of the unrighteous will be alike eternal: 1 Cor. 15:51-57; Phil. 3:20, 21; Rom. 14:9, 10; 2 Cor. 5:10; Dan. 12:2; Acts 17:31; Rev. 20:11-15. 8. That Satan is a real personality: he was created perfect by God and given power, but through pride he fell and became the father of sin, the arch-enemy of God and of the souls of men: Job 1:6-7; Ezekiel 28:14-15; Isaiah 14:12,13; 1 Peter 5:8.
