Article XIII. Repentance and Faith

We believe that Repentance and Faith are

  1. solemn obligations, (Acts 20:21);
  2. inseparable graces (Mark 1:15);
  3. wrought in our souls by the life-giving Spirit of God (Acts 2:27-36);
  4. used thereby so that, being deeply convicted of our guilt, danger and helplessness, and of the way of salvation by Christ, we turn to God with unfeigned contrition, confession and supplication for mercy (Luke 18:13); Romans 10:13; Psalm 51:104; Psalm 51:7; Isaiah 55:6-7);
  5. at the same time heartily receiving the Lord Jesus Christ and openly confessing Him as our only and all sufficient Savior (Luke 12:8; Romans 9:11).
