What We Believe

We believe in God, the Father almighty,
      creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
      who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
      and born of the virgin Mary.
      He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
      was crucified, died, and was buried;
      he descended to hell.
      The third day he rose again from the dead.
      He ascended to heaven
      and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
      From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
      the holy catholic* church,
      the communion of saints,
      the forgiveness of sins,
      the resurrection of the body,
      and the life everlasting. Amen.

*that is, the true Christian church of all times and all places
 



The Second London Baptist Confession of Faith (adopted 1689)

We believe that the Second London Confession is a most excellent summary of things most surely believed among us.  We accept it not as an authoritative rule or code of faith (as scripture is our authority), whereby we are to be fettered, but as an assistance to us in controversy, a confirmation in faith, and a means of edification in righteousness.
