What We Believe – Confession of Faith
It is very apparent that we live in a world in which the second law of thermodynamics is actively at work. This law simply stated says that all things tend toward decay. One may well have never heard of this law of physics, but we all certainly have seen it at work. For example, the paint on a new house will in time begin to fade and peel, gutters sag, and the roof leak. It seems we are continually repairing or doing preventative maintenance to keep things from deteriorating. Without such measures things go from order to disorder in a relatively short period of time.
This reality is no less true in the spiritual realm. Apart from appropriate attention and care for Biblical orthodoxy the signs of “spiritual decay” soon manifest themselves. The history of the church is full of examples where this has indeed been the case. Little wonder that Jude says “Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints” (v.3). Jude was compelled in his day to contend earnestly for the Gospel and so it is for each successive generation of the church of Jesus Christ.
It is our desire in this generation, with God’s help, to contend earnestly for the faith. It is our desire to be faithful to God and His Word so that in all things He alone is glorified as Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer and Lord over all. The following is a part of our confession of faith in which we endeavor in our day to “contend earnestly for the faith.”
Soli Deo Gloria!
