1st We believe in one only true and living God the Father the word (or son) and Holy Ghost equal in wisdom power and glory,----
2nd We believe the scriptures of the old and New Testament to be of divine authority and the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
3rd We believe in the total depravity of human nature and that a recovery from that situation is wholly and entirely of the sovreign free unmerited grace of God in Christ Jesus.
4th We believe that God purposed in himself for his own glory to make a display of his wisdom power justice goodness and truth in the works of creation which he hath made in the dispensation of his providence.
5th We believe that God from eternity purposed to save a people from their sins for his holy name sake and that in infinite wisdom he devised the plan and appointed every mean necessary to accomplish the great end of their redemption which he effects in his own time by the operation of his holy spirit.
6th We believe that Sinners are justified before God alone by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ.
7th We believe all such as are born of the spirit of God are kept by the power of God through unto eternal salvation.
8th We believe that good works are the effects of the faith of God's elect and follow being born of the Spirit and in this point of view are evidences of a gracious state.
9th We believe Baptism and the Lord's supper are ordinances of the gospel instituted by Jesus Christ and none but those who profess faith in Christ and obedience to his will are fit subjects for either.
10th We believe immersion according to the scriptures and apostolic practice to be the only proper baptism.
11th We believe the sanctity of the first day of the week or Lord's day ought to be observed and spent in the public or private worship of God and that we should abstain from our worldly concerns except in cases of necessity and mercy.
12th We believe in the resurrection of the body both of the just and unjust and that God will judge the world in righteousness by that man who hath appointed.
13th We believe the righteous will forever abide in the peaceful presence of God their redeemer and his pardoning grace and redeeming love be the theme of their song while the wicked shall remain in everlasting torment.
1st Every meeting is to be opened and closed by prayer
2nd To inquire if there be any matter of complaint in order to be made known to the church and open a door for the reception of members.
