Abstract of Baptist Principles

1. We believe in one true and living God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost and that these three are one.

2. We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the words of God and the only rule of faith and practice.

3. We believe in the doctrine of election by Grace.

4. We believe in the doctrine of Original Sin, and in man's inpotency to recover himself from the fallen state he is in by nature by his own free will or ability.

5. We believe that sinners are called, converted, regenerated, and sanctified by the Holy spirit and that all who are thus regenerated or born again by the Spirit of God shall never fall finally away.

6. We believe that sinners are justified in the sight of God only by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ.

7. We believe that Baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances of Jesus Christ and that true believers are the subjects of these ordinances and we believe that the true mode of Baptism is by immersion.

8. We believe in the resurrection and a general judgment and that the joys of the righteous and the torments of the wicked will be eternal.

9. We believe that no minister has a right to administer the ordinances except such as are regularly called and come under the hands of the presbytery.
