Howdy Perusing some stuff, I found these articles of faith from a North Carolina Baptist Church established in 1794. Comments? Would you have them for your church today? “1. We believe in God the Father, creator of all things visible and invisible, and in Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, the Mediator of the New Covenant and in the Holy Ghost; and that these three are one God, co-equal, co-eternal, the same in substance, power and glory. “2. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Word of God and the only Rule of Faith and Practice, and that the only way of salvation is by the imputed righteousness of Jesus applied to the soul by the Spirit of God without anything in us or done by us as meritorious to our salvation. “3. We believe the duty we owe God is to adhere to the Scriptures and comply with the commands and duty therein, as baptism, and the laying-on of hands and the Lord’s Supper, keeping the Sabbath and attending on public and private worship of God and church meetings, especially on Saturday more than any other meeting. “4. We believe the duty we owe to our family is to pray with and for them morning and evening and to set such examples before them and our neighbors as may be for God’s glory and their good. “5. We believe that sanctification is a work of God's Spirit carried on in the soul and will not be finished till the soul and body are disunited and that all true believers in Jesus Christ shall persevere in grace and never fall so as to be lost “6. We believe in the resurrection of the body, both of the just and unjust, and there is a day In which God will judge the world by that man Christ Jesus, and that the righteous will be received into eternal glory and that the wicked will be sent into eternal punishment and that through the endless ages of eternity." “7. We believe it to be our duty to counsel, admonish and reprove one another, and not to expose one another to any in the church or out of it till it is brought before the church agreeably to the Word of God."
