Statement of Faith

Sola Scriptura, Sola Fide, Sola Gratia, Solo Christo, Soli deo Gloria

The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, sufficient and authoritative Word of God. See also the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith (hereafter abbreviated as the 1689 LBCF), chapter 1, on the Holy Scriptures.

There is one God, existing in three persons-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit-one in substance, eternal, infinite, holy. See also the 1689 LBCF, chapter 2, Of God and the Holy Trinity.

God created man upright and perfect, yet he sinned, falling from righteousness. This resulted in death for all man, being born corrupt and with a sin nature. (Genesis 2-3; Romans 5:12)

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, became man, living a righteous life (without sin), died on the cross and taking our sin upon Himself, and rose from the dead. See also the 1689 LBCF, chapter 8, Of Christ the Mediator.

View on salvation is Calvinist (Total Depravity of man, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, Perseverance of the Saints). For an explanation of each of these points, go here.
