Oxford Primitive Baptist Church

Articles of Faith
  1. We believe, in one true and living God, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, and these three are one.
  2. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspiration of God and the infallible rule of faith and practice for the Saints.
  3. We believe in the doctrine of predestination and of the election of a definite number of the human family to grace and glory before the world began, and that they will in time be manifested heirs of God, and joint heirs of, or with, the Lord Jesus Christ by a birth of the Spirit.
  4. We believe that the entire human family are dead in trespasses and sins by reason of the first transgression and are utterly unable to recover themselves from their fallen condition.
  5. We believe in a definite and particular redemption by the blood of Jesus Christ which embraces all of the elect and no other, and that the atonement made by Christ is full and complete.
  6. We believe all those who are called, quickened, regenerated, and justified are preserved in Christ and kept by the power of God unto salvation and can never fall away and finally be lost.
  7. We believe that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of Jesus Christ, and that feet washing is an example, a duty, connected with the supper, and, that true believers are the only subjects of either and should be practiced by the churches; that baptism by immersion is the apostolic mode.
  8. We believe that none but those who give a reason of a spiritual birth and have been legally baptized have a right to commune at the Lord’s Table.
  9. We believe that no minister has the right to administer the ordinances of the gospel but such as have been regularly baptized and called by God and comes under the hands of a presbytery.
  10. We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust, and that the vile bodies of the Saints shall be changed like unto the glorious body of Jesus Christ, and that the felicity of the Saints will be eternal and the punishment of the wicked will be everlasting.
