In the Foundations pulpit and classrooms, there will be an open pronouncement of the various truths announced in the Foundations Creed.
I believe in the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments; the creation of man by God; the virgin birth of our Lord Jesus Christ; His redemption for the sins of mankind through His blood on the Cross of Calvary; the resurrection of His body from the tomb; His ability to save men from personal sins, to sanctify men from the power of sin, to separate men from the reputation of sin, to announce the distinction between being born of the Spirit and being filled with the Holy Spirit; the hope of the pre-millennial coming of Christ back to the earth; and, the gift of eternal life by the free grace of God.
Although this shall be the basis of the preaching and teaching of the Foundations Ministries, we want it to be clearly understood that it is not necessary for a Christian with whom we fellowship to feel obligated to accept our distinctive ordo salutus (order of sovereignty and human responsibility in the matter of personal salvation), ordo sanctus (order and terminology in the doctrine of sanctification), and ordo apocalupsis (order of events in the doctrine of the Second Coming of Jesus). We honestly believe that a Christian could view these three orders in a little different perspective without denying or destroying the belief in these biblical truths. On our part, we would never deny a student or brother or sister to our fellowship should he or she, through the Holy Scriptures, take a different position in the order of these precious truths. It is necessary, we believe, according to the Bible, to accept these truths (salvation, sanctification, and the second advent of Christ) as being essential to the Christian, but we do not demand in our fellowship of saints a particular theological system as the basis of that Christian fellowship. All theological systems came into existence after the completion of the New Testament, and Hyper-Calvinism and Hyper-Arminianism are theological systems which have gone to the extreme away from the biblical balance of the biblical paradoxes. We cannot see a basis of fellowship in either of these extremes.
While repudiating the heresy of Ruckmanism, the Foundations Ministries use only the King James Version in our public preaching and personal witness.
If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?(Psalm 11:3).
