Doctrinal Statement

CWRC holds the following to be true:

  • That the guilt of Adam's sin, imputed to every member of the human race, constitutes the ground for condemnation of all men indiscriminately. The consequent sinning of mankind, stemming from a corrupt and depraved nature, exhibits the carnage wrought to us through Adam's sin. (Romans 5:12-21)

  • That salvation is all of grace through faith alone, apart from any works or any religious rituals, in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who died on behalf of spiritually dead sinners once and for all time. (Ephesians 2:1-9)

  • That justification is first and foremost the acquittal of the repentant sinner based solely upon the righteousness of Christ alone. (Romans 3:28, Galatians 2:16, Titus 3:5)

  • That the imputed righteousness of Christ is the sole ground of justification of poor guilty sinners. (Romans 3:1-4:9)

  • That regeneration precedes and produces faith in the heart of those born from above (John 1:13; 3:1-8)

  • That God has chosen His elect and placed them in Christ, where they are eternally secure and at peace with God, whereby nothing can separated them from the love of God. (Romans 8)

  • That all of God's elect are endowed with the fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit, along with the indwelling of the Spirit of God. (I Corinthians 12:4-7, Ephesians 1:13, I Peter 1:2)<

  • That Scripture as contained in the Old Testament (39 books, English) and in the New Testament (27 books, English) is our only infallible and sufficient rule for salvation and sanctification. (II Timothy 3:16)

  • That salvation is of the Lord and cannot be manipulated through the religious obedience's of man, and that all religions on the face of the earth are to be counted as nothing in light of the revelation of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which teaches us that faith alone in the finished work of Christ alone is the heart's belief of the child of God. (Romans 11:6)
