We stand in agreement with the Articles of faith of the Seventh Day Baptist General Conference while retaining the following articles of faith of this particular assembly
The Bible is inspired by God and the sole rule of our faith and practice.
(2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1: 19-21)
There is only one God revealed in three beings. The bible says there is only One God and calls the Father God, and the Son God, and the Holy Spirit God. Thus we use the word Trinity. (Isaiah 43:10,11; 44:6; John 1:1; 20:28; 2 Corinthians 3:17; Hebrews 3:7-11 quotes Psalms 95:7)
Mary conceived and gave birth to Jesus by the Holy Spirit and by the power of God.
(Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23,25; Luke 1:30-35)
Jesus died upon the cross as a sacrifice for our sins.
(John 3:16,17; Romans 5:8,9; 1 Peter 3:3:18)
Jesus predicted his bodily resurrection and it came to pass three days after His death.
(John 2:19-22; 20:24-29; Luke 24:1-7; 36-43)
As the Ascension of Jesus after the resurrection was visible, so shall the return of Jesus at an unknown time to man.
(John 14:1-3; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-16)
There will be a distinct time in the future at the return of Jesus Christ when there will be a resurrection of the body. At that time those who are alive will be caught up together with them to meet the Lord and forever to be with Him.
(Danial 12:2; John 5:28,29; 1 Thessalotians 4:15-18; 1 Corinthians 15:20-24, 50-55)
While there are differences among Christians as to types of judgments, the Bible is clear as to there being a judgment of God.
(John 5:24; Hebrews 9:27; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:11-15)
There is a part of man that supersedes the death of the physical body and has a conscious existence after death of the body. Some may refer to this as soul while others may use the word spirit.
(Luke 16:19-31; 2 Corinthians 5:6-9; 12:2-4; Philippians 1:19-23)
Man is separated from God by sin and cannot do any works to bridge that gap. That was the purpose of the sacrifice of Jesus upon the cross. This is the gift of God that we reach and receive by faith alone. This new life in Christ is to portrayed by works. Works are a product of our salvation, but do not cause us to be saved.
(Romans 2:23; 6:23; 10:9; Ephesians 2:8-10; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
The seventh day of the week is the sabbath sancified by God at creation, maintained in the law, declared by Jesus Christ as Himself being the Lord of it. It is not one day out of seven nor has it ever been changed to any other day by the authority of the bible.
(Genesis 2:2,3; Exodus 20:8-11; Mark 2:27.28)
BAPTISM is practiced by immersion and dose not wash away sin, but is an outward sign of the cleansing that already took place when receiving Christ.
(Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 6:1-14)
THE LORD'S SUPPER is a memorial that brings to remembrance of Jesus' death on Calvary. This is to be observed until He returns.
(Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-28)
