Series on Fundamental Faith By Elder Robert “Bob” Glenn Dickerson, Jr. 10-5-1930 to 1-12-14

Article I We Believe the Scriptures of the Old and New

Testaments are the Word of God, and the only rule of Faith and Practice.

Article II We Believe in the Only True and Living God, and that there are Three Persons in the Godhead, Father,

Son, and Holy Ghost, and that these Three Agree in One, are Co-Equal, Co-Eternal, and Co-existent.

Article III We Believe in the Total Depravity of the Entire Human Family.

Article IV We believe in man's impotency to recover himself from

the state of sin he is in by nature, by his own free will and ability.

Article V  We Believe Jesus Christ to be the Son of God, the Only Saviour

 and Redeemer, and that Salvations is by His Grace and that alone.

Article VI  We Believe in the Particular, Eternal and Unconditional Election of God's Children.

Article VII  We Believe That All of God's Elect Shall Be Called, Regenerated and Sanctified by the Holy Ghost.
Article VII We Believe in the Final Preservation of the Saints.

Article IX  We Believe in the Resurrection of the Just and the Unjust, that the Just shall be Raised, Changed and

Fashioned Like unto he Glorious Body of the Son of God, and Dwell in Heaven Forever.

And that the Unjust Shall be Raised and Consigned to Everlasting Punishment.

Article X We Believe that Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are Ordinances of the Church of Jesus Christ, and that the True Believers, Born of the Holy Spirit, are the Only Fit Subjects of these Ordinances, and that the Only Water Baptism Taught and Recognized in the Bible is Immersion or Dipping.
Article XI  “We Believe That No Minister has the Right to Administer the Ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper but Such as are Regularly Called by the God of Heaven and Come Under the Imposition of Hands by a Presbytery."
