​Article XX – God Requires Examination

We affirm that God enjoins us to “prove all things; hold fast that which is good” and “let every man prove his own work,” particularly when the people of God are not thriving according to the biblical requirements (Rom. 12:2; Gal. 6:4; Eph. 5:10, 17; 1 Thess. 5:21).  We deny/reject that elders who shepherd the flock of Christ have no need […]

​Article XIX – Satan is a Deceiver

We affirm the warning of Holy Scripture that since the Garden of Eden, Satan, the father of lies and deceiver of the brethren, has used and continues to use his subtle trickery to question God’s Word: “Yea, hath God said…?” (Gen. 3:1; Matt. 4:6; John 8:44; 2 Cor. 11:3, 14; Rev. 12:9).  We deny/reject that God’s people, corporately or individually, should embrace […]
