In essential beliefs ― we have unity.
“There is one body and one Spirit … one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all …” Ephesians 4:4-6
In non-essential beliefs ― we have liberty.
“As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. … Who are you to pass judgement on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls … So then each of us will give an account of himself to God … The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God…” Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22
In all our beliefs ― we show charity.
“And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:2
The following statements express the essentials around which we are united as a fellowship:
The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and ﬁnal judgement.
