We hold to the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689 as our doctrinal statement. We accept it not as any authoritarian code of faith whereby we are fettered. Although imperfect, this historic document is an excellent summary of the things most surely believed among us. We find it to be an assistance in controversy, a confirmation of faith, and a means of edification in righteousness. The ultimate authority in all matters of faith and practice is the Bible alone, which truth is set forth in the opening article of the Confession itself.
1689 London Baptist Confession
With Scripture Proofs Adopted by the Ministers and Messengers of the general assembly which met in London in 1689
“This ancient document is the most excellent epitome of the things most surely believed among us. It is not issued as an authoritative rule or code of faith, whereby you may be fettered, but as a means of edification in righteousness. It is an excellent, though not inspired, expression of the teaching of those Holy Scriptures by which all confessions are to be measured. We hold to the humbling truths of God’s sovereign grace in the salvation of lost sinners. Salvation is through Christ alone and by faith alone.” – C. H. Spurgeon
