1. All of Scripture is “breathed out by God.” Therefore, we affirm the Bible’s inspiration, inerrancy, and authority. As such, the Bible is the final and sufficient authority in all matters of faith and practice in the church. (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
2. At times, it is helpful to issue statements to clarify biblical truth and to correct doctrinal errors and heresies that may arise. Therefore we fully subscribe to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith in particular as a faithful exposition of vital biblical doctrines, to aid in the instruction, edification, correction, and protection of the church. The 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith does not serve to supplement, add to or subtract from the Word of God. The Confession does serve as a summary statement of the doctrine believed and preached by Word of Grace Baptist Church (WOGBC) and may be used to share, as a matter of integrity, with any party interested in joining fellowship with WOGBC.
3. The church may also adopt other historical confessions of faith, or issue its own position statements in order to clarify or correct matters of doctrine, ethics, or practice that may arise.
