Articles of Faith of the Baptist Chh of Christ in Painted Post.


We believe the Scriptures of the Old & New Testaments, to be the word of God, written by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, & to contain an infallible rule of faith & practice. ............Particularly..............

1st. We believe in the existance of one Indefinite God, who altho one God, subsists in an incomprhensible Trinity,  Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

2nd. We believe that God created all things, & in a soverign manner so governs the whole, as to execute his eternal purposes respecting them in Providence & Redemption.

3rd. We believe, that God man man (at first) upright, in his own (moral) image, & constituted him public Head & representative of his posterity, & (that) in consequence of his disobedience, his descendants were born sinners, & are (actually &) totally depraved in their will & affections, so that all the (doings &) esercises [sic-JKC] of the unregenerate are wholy Sinful.

4th. We believe that God out of his mere good pleasure provided for lost men a Savior, even Jesus Christ his eternal Son, who having united himself to a sinless human nature suffered & died as a complete sacrifice for the sins of many that whosoever believeth on  him might not perish, but have eternal life.

5th. That the only reason why men do not embrace the gospel is a voluntary opposition to God & holiness: & that the nature of this opposition is such, that no one will believe in Christ, but as faith is wrought in the heart the renewing influences of the Holy Ghost.
