What We Believe

Adhering unwaveringly to the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith holds profound significance for a Reformed Baptist church, as it serves as a comprehensive and meticulously articulated theological framework that undergirds the very essence of their belief system. Embracing this Confession provides a sturdy anchor for doctrinal unity and scriptural fidelity, ensuring that the congregation remains firmly rooted in the bedrock of biblical truth and steadfastly resists the currents of theological relativism and cultural drift that often threaten to erode the foundations of faith. Furthermore, the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith not only imparts a sense of continuity with the historical roots of Christianity, connecting present-day believers with the rich theological heritage of the past, but it also offers a robust foundation for theological engagement and intellectual discourse, encouraging a deep and nuanced understanding of core doctrines and providing a solid basis for the discerning application of biblical principles in the modern context.

Of the Holy Trinity

We believe in the existence of one God in three distinct persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We affirm the fundamental principles of their eternal nature, emphasizing their sovereignty, wisdom, and the unity of the Godhead.

We firmly deny tritheism, affirming that there is only one true God, who exists eternally in three distinct persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—without division or contradiction. We hold to the biblical truth of the unity of the Godhead while acknowledging the unique roles and relationships of the three persons within the one divine essence.

We unequivocally deny modalism, recognizing that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are not mere modes or manifestations of one God, but rather three distinct persons, co-existing eternally in perfect unity within the Godhead. We affirm the biblical teaching of the Trinity, where each person of the Godhead possesses their own distinct identity and divine attributes, while being united in essence and purpose.

Of Scripture

We affirm the sufficiency of Scripture, acknowledging that God's Word, the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, contains everything necessary for our faith and obedience. We firmly believe that the Scriptures are complete and comprehensive, providing all that is required for the salvation of sinners and the guidance of us as believers in all matters of faith and practice.

Of the Depravity of Man

We acknowledge and affirm the total depravity of humanity, recognizing that we, as humans, are born with a sinful nature inherited from Adam, making us incapable of saving ourselves and utterly dependent on God's grace for redemption. We understand that our natural state is characterized by a complete inability to choose or do anything truly good apart from the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts.

Of Jesus

We affirm the glorious work of Jesus, acknowledging Him as the perfect mediator between God and humanity. We firmly believe in His incarnation, sinless life, atoning death, and victorious resurrection, through which He accomplished redemption and reconciliation for us, providing salvation and eternal life to all who trust in Him alone for their salvation.

Of Salvation

We affirm that salvation is solely by God's grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that it is the work of the Holy Spirit to regenerate and renew our hearts, enabling us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ alone for our justification, adoption, and sanctification, securing our eternal reconciliation with God.

Of Marriage

We affirm that marriage is a sacred institution established by God, designed as a lifelong covenant between one man and one woman. We firmly believe that marriage is intended for the mutual love, support, and companionship of husband and wife, as well as for the procreation and nurturing of children in a God-honoring environment.

Of the Qualifications of Elders and Deacons

We recognize that eligible candidates for the offices of elder and deacon should be men who meet the biblical qualifications outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-13 and Titus 1:5-9. These individuals must exhibit godly character, spiritual maturity, and a clear understanding of the Scriptures, being called and gifted by the Holy Spirit to serve the church in these leadership roles.

Of Integrated Family Worship

As devout believers, we acknowledge the profound significance of family-integrated worship on the Lord's Day. Embracing this practice, we prioritize gathering as one united family to worship God, fostering stronger bonds between parents and children, nurturing a deep understanding of biblical truths, and cultivating a shared love and reverence for the Lord, which enriches our spiritual growth and strengthens the foundation of our faith.
