Sermon of the

Confession of Faith


We believe in the existence of One God, who is a spirit

infinite eternal & unchangeable in being wisdom power holiness

justice goodness & truth. That there are three persons in

the Godhead, the Father the Son & the Holy Ghost, and these

three are one God the same in substance & equal in power

& Glory.

We believe that all mankind are born unholy &

are by nature enemies to God and subject to his law neither

indeed can be.

We believe that men are free agents voluntarily

chosing life or death, and acting from this free choice they

are justly accountable for all their actions & must render

strict account for all their sins.

We believe that without regeneration, or being

born again it is impossible that any should be finally

saved, and that this work is preminently the work of the

Holy spirit who worketh in us to will & to do of his good

pleasure while we with fear & trembling work out our own

salvation.

We believe that salvation comes to the Sinner

only through faith in the lord Jesus Christ, who by

his perfect obedience fulfilled the Divine law while by his

vicarious atonement he became a profitiation for our sins, & not

for ours only but for the sins of one whole world ^ so that who

soever believes in him might not perish, but have everlas

ting life.

We therefore believe that all who believe not on the

Son of God are under condemnation all ready ^ that the

wrath of God abideth on them, and unless they repent &

turn to God by faith, they will justly continue to un

der that condemnation throughout eternity.

We therefore believe that all the truly [illegible] will [crossed out] are

the sons of God, & that they shall good part ^ which they have chosen shall not

be taken away from there neither is there any one who

is able to pluck them from their fathers hand.

We believe that Christ has established a visible

church on earth, consisting of those who being born again

associate themselves together for mutual help watch & care & for

the proper observance of the ordinances which he has established

& that it is the bourden due & highest privilege of all true believers

to thus publicky, confess him before men, and in so far

become separated from the unbelieving world around them

We believe that the ordinance of Christs house

are baptism & the Lords Supper, the former to be

administered to believers only & the latter to believers

and their children the latter to believers.

We believe that God hath appointed a day in

the which he will judge the world, when the ^ righteous wicked

publicly acquitted will pass to the possession of that ^ enduring inheritance

prepared for them from the foundation of the world, while

the wicked are publicly condemned shall pass into punishment

which shall never end.
