Article of Faith I – One God
I Timothy 2:5
 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
Article of Faith II – Man’s Image
 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
Article of Faith III – Church Foundation
 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;”
 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
Ephesians 4:1-32 (Entire Chapter)
 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
 But ye have not so learned Christ;
 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
 Neither give place to the devil.
 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
I Corinthians 12: 27-31
 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
Article of Faith IV – Repentance
 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;”
 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”
 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
Article of Faith V – Salvation
 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Acts 2: 21 (H3)
 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Matthew 10: 22
 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,”
 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.”
Ephesians 2: 8-9
 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:”
II Corinthians 7:1
 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
I John 1: 9
 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Article of Faith VI – Baptism
Acts 18: 24, [25*], 26-28
 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
[25*] This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spoke and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.
 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.
 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:
 For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
Acts 19: 1-4 [5*], 6-7
 And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.
 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
[5*] When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spoke with tongues, and prophesied.
 And all the men were about twelve.
 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
Article of Faith VII – Lord’s Supper/Feet Washing
 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
 And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.
 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of JudasIscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;
 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
I Corinthians 11:1-3
 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
I Corinthians 11:17-34
 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.
 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.
 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.
 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.
 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.
 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.
Article of Faith VIII – Divine Healing
 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Article of Faith IX – Jesus’ Birth
 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
Article of Faith X – Jesus’ Burial

 And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.
Article of Faith XI – Jesus’ Resurrection
 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
John 20:1-31 (Entire Chapter)
 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.
 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.
 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.
 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.
 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
 Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:
 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.
 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou become thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

Article of Faith XIV – Praise and Worship
 Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
