Article XXI – Judgment Begins With the Church

We affirm that God has declared “judgment must begin at the house of God” and thus, we Christians are to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, looking to judge ourselves lest we be chastened all the more (1 Peter 4:17; 5:6). We deny/reject that the church should continue disobeying God and delay repentance and reformation, or […]

The Definition of Holiness

In this video, Joel Beeke defines holiness as: becoming more set apart unto God, and becoming less like the world.

​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 […]

God’s Holiness is Why We Worship

Why should we worship God? We worship God because He is holy! When someone comes into contact with the holiness of God, the response is to worship. Kevin Swanson points to Isaiah 6, and Isaiah’s response when he sees the holiness of God.  To hear more from Kevin Swanson on the subject of holiness, come to […]

How Sanctification of a Believer Changes a Church
