NEW CUMNOCK EVANGELICAL CHURCH.
THIS CHURCH RECOGNISES THE LORD JESUS AS IT’S SUPREME HEAD.
AS A CHURCH WE ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING DOCTRINAL STATEMENT.
A. The absolute sovereignty of God in all matters to Creation, Providence and Salvation.B. The full inspiration and infallibility of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given; their authority and sufficiency as being in themselves the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and profitable for instruction in righteousness, and a sure guide unto eternal life.
C. The Trinity in unity of the Godhead; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – one God existing in three divine Persons.
D. The fact that Adam and Eve have fallen from their original righteousness and communion with God and so all mankind have become helpless, guilty sinners in need of salvation. Such salvation can only be received through true repentance and personal faith in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
E. The essential deity and sinless humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ; His Virgin birth, and His work of atonement for sinners by His vicarious sufferings and death, and His bodily resurrection and ascension.
F. The personality of the Holy Spirit and the necessity of His work in regeneration, conversion and sanctification.
G. The justification of the sinner through faith alone in our Lord Jesus Christ.
H. The second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in bodily form in glory.
I. The immortality of the soul; the resurrection of the body; the final judgement of all mankind; the conscious eternal punishment in hell of the wicked who die impenitent.
J. The Ordinance of Baptism by immersion of believers, and the Lord’s Supper as instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ, but not in baptism as imparting regenerating grace, or in the Lord’s Supper involving any change in substance of the bread and the wine.
K. The Church as a communion of born-again believers whose object is to worship God and work together in His service, endeavouring with all diligence to fulfil the great Commission to seek the salvation of the lost and realising their responsibility “ to live soberly, righteously and godly in the present age.”
