MEMORIAL. 

We feel it is our duty to give our dearly Moved brother and faithful 
minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Elder J. 1'. Russell, who fell 
asleep in Jesus, January 5th. 1891, a place in pur minutes. We have 
greatly missed him in the Association, for his counsel was always good ; 
we have missed him at the stand as he was faithful there and his words 
were ever instructive. But the good Lord has seen ht to call him from 
our midst and take to Himself, and we feel that our lo.ss is his gain. So 
we as a body tender our most heartfelt sympathy to his dear companion 
and loving family, and will say the same to his yoke-fellows in the minis- 
try. May the good Lord keep us in the bonds of love, so that it may be 
said for us when the cold hand of death shall take us. well done ! thou 
hast persevered with love to ihe cause he espoused.

ARTICLES OF FAITH. 

Article i. We believe in only one true and living God, and that he revealeth him- 
self to his people in his word, under the character of Father, Word and Holy Ghost, and 
these three are one. 

Proof— St. John, i. i : In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and 
the \\'ord was God. i John, v. 7: For there are three that bear i-ecord in Heaven— the 
Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost — and these three are one 

Art. 2. We believe the .Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the revealed word 
of God and the only rule of faith and practice. 

Proof— 2 Peter, i, 21 : For the propliecy came not in old time by the will of man. but 
holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Tim. iii, 16, 17: All 
scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for 
correction, for instruction in righteousness ; that the man of God may oe perfect, thor- 
oughly furnished unto all good works. 

Art. 3. We believe in the doctrine of original sin. Proof — Romans v. 12. Wherefore 
as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin i^»d so death passed upon all 
men, for that all have sinned. Pslams, li, 5 : Behold I was shapen in iniquity; and in 
sin did my mother conceive me. 

Art. 4. We beliei'e in man's incapacity to recover himself from the fallen state he is in 
by nature, by his own free will and ability. Proof— -St John, vi, 44 : No man can come to 
me except the father which sent me draw him. Jeremiali .xiii, 23: Can the Ethiopian 
change his skin, or the leopard his spots .•' then may ye ;vlso do good that are accustomed 
to do evil. 

Art. 5. We believe in the doctrine of eternal and particular election. Proof — Ephes- 
ians. i, 4 : According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that 
we should be holy and without blame before him in love. Romans, viii, 30 : Moreover, 
whom he did predestinate, them he also called, and whom he called, them he also justi- 
fied ; and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 

Art. 6. We believe that sinners are justified in the siglit of God only by his imputed 
righteousness. Proof— 2 Cor., v, 21 : Fof he hath made him^^be sin for us, who Knew 
no sin : that we might be made the rio^hteousness of Ciod in him. Jere. xxiii, 6 :iAnd this is 
his name whereby he shall he called. The Lord our righteousness. 

Art. 7. We believe that God's elect are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in 
Jesus Christ and called. Proof — Jude ist verse. Acts, ii, 39: For the promise is unto vou 
and to your children and to all that are afar oft", even as many as the Lord our God 
shall call. 

Art. S. We believe that Baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances of Jesus Christ, 
and that true believers are the only fit subjects of those o\'dinances, and the mode of Bap- 
tsm is immersion. Proof— Luke, iii, 21, 22 : Now when tne people were baptized, it came 
to pass that Jesus, also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened. And the 
Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape, like a clove, upon him. and a voice came from 
heaven which said : Thou art niv beloved .~^on. in thee 1 am well pleased. Acts, viii, yj. 
39 : And Philip said. If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answer- 
ed and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the .^on of God. .\nd he commanded the char- 
iot to stand still, and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the Eunuch, 
and he baptized him. And when they were come up out of the water, the spirit of the 
Lord caught away Philip, and the Eunuch saw him no more, but he went on his way re- 
joicing. Proof of the Supper — Matt., xxvi. 26, 27 : Jesus took bread and blessed it and 
brake it, and gave it to his disciples, and said. Take, eat, this is my body. And he took 
the cup and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying. Drink ye all of it. 

Art. 9. We believe in washing the saints" feet in"a church capacity, immediately after 
communion. Proof— St. John, xiii. 4, 5 : He riseth from supper, and laid aside his gar- 
ments, and took a towel and girded himself. After that he poured water into a basin and 
began to wash the disciples' feet, and vi'ipe them with a towel wherewith he was girded. 
.St. John. xiii. 13-15 ; Ve call me Master and Lord : and ye say well, for so I am. If 1. 
then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, ve also ought to wash one another's 
feet. For 1 liave given you an e.xample, that ye should do as I have done to you. 

Art. 10. We believe no minister has a riglit to administer the ordinances of the gos- 
pel, but such as are called of God. as was Aaron ; and come under the hands of the pres- 
oytery. Proof — .\cts. xiii. 2. 3: The Holy (ihost said. Separate me, Barnabas and .^aul 
to the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and praved and 
laid their hands on them, they sent them away, i Tim., iv. 14 : Neglect not the gift that is 
in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of hands of the presbytery. 

Art. 11. We telieve the saints shall persevere in grace and never fall. Proof — St. John. 
X, 28 ; And I gave unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish. Col., iii. 3. 4 : For 
ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. \\'hen Christ, who is our life, shall 
appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. 

Art. 12. We believe in the resurrection of the dead, small and great, and a general judg- 
ment. Proof — St. John, v. 28, 29 : Marvel not at this, for the hour is comin" in the which 
all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth : they that have done 



CONECUH -RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION. 



good unto the resurrection of life, and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of 
damnation. Acts, xvii, 31 : because he hath appointed a day, in the which lie will judge 
the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained, whereof he hath given 
assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. 

Art. 13. We believe the punishment of the wicked will be everlasting, and the joys of 
the righteous will be eternal, l^roof— Pslams, i.x, 17 : The wicked shall be turned into hell, 
and all the nations that forget Ciod. St. Matt., .\xv, 46: And these shall go away into 
everlasting punishment ; but tlie righteous into life eternal. Rev., x.xi, 14: And God shall 
wipe away all tears from their eyes ; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor 
crying : neither shall there Ix' any more pain, for the former things have passed away.
