Statement of Faith in the Holy Scriptures, Jesus Christ, and Salvation through the Word of God.

Dedicated to Placing the Treasure of God's Word into the Hands of People around the World

 
The Holy Scriptures
The Holy Scripture is the all-sufficient standard of the knowledge, faith and obedience that constitute salvation. The sum total of God's revelation concerning all things essential to our salvation and faith and life of men and women, is either explicitly set down or implicitly contained in the Holy Scripture. Nothing, whether a supposed revelation of the Spirit or man's traditions, is ever to be added to Scripture. The authority of the Bible does not depend upon the testimony of any man or church, but entirely upon God, its author, who is truth.
 
The testimony of the church of God may influence and persuade us to hold the Scripture in the highest esteem. At the same time, however, we recognize that our full persuasion and assurance of its infallible truth and divine authority is the outcome of the inward work of the Holy Spirit bearing witness by and with the Word in our hearts. All religious controversies are to be settled by Scripture, and by Scripture alone. All decrees of Councils, opinions of ancient writers and doctrines of men collectively or individually, are similarly to be accepted or rejected according to the verdict of the Scripture given to us by the Holy Spirit. In that verdict faith finds its final rest.
 
Jesus Christ
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father. God's Son, Jesus Christ came to earth for our salvation. Jesus came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit He became incarnate from the Virgin Mary and was made man. For our sake, he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end.
 
Salvation
God freely justifies the persons whom He calls. He does this, not by infusing righteousness into them, but by pardoning their sins and by accounting them and accepting them, as righteous. This He does for Christ's sake alone and not for anything wrought in them or done by them. The righteousness which is imputed to them, that is, reckoned to their account, is the righteousness of Christ's obedience alone. Those thus justified receive and rest by faith upon Christ's righteousness; and this faith they have, not of themselves, but as the gift of God. The faith which receives and rests on Christ and His righteousness is the sole means of justification. Yet it is never alone in the person justified, but is invariably accompanied by all other saving graces. Nor is it a dead faith, for it works by love.

By His obedience and death Christ paid in full the debt of those who are justified. By the sacrifice of Himself in His blood-shedding on Calvary and His suffering on their behalf of the penalty they had incurred. He fully and absolutely satisfied all the claims which God's justice had upon them. Their justification is altogether of free grace, firstly because Christ was the free gift of the Father to act on their behalf; secondly because Christ's obedience and His satisfying the demands of the law was freely accepted on their behalf; and thirdly because nothing in them merited these mercies. Hence God's exact justice and His rich grace are alike rendered glorious in the justification of sinners.
