Coffee Creek Baptist Church Minutes
1822 Organization and Articles of Faith
This information was originally a web site on Rootsweb, It was part of a group of great information provided by Jonathan Loppnow - since that site is not on line at this time I have copied the information and will make it available until the original site comes back on line. I also was not able to copy to internal links in these documents (many not working) but I did add some links where I had them to different records. My comments in this color purple. SLK

At a meeting of a few members of the Baptist Church of Jesus Christ on Coffee Creek first Saturday in May, 1822 after prayer to God for his direction by Elder Thomas HILL the members from sister churches appeared and took their seats (viz.) from Union brother Peleg BAKER from Vernon, Brethren Isaiah BLANKENSHIP, William T. STOTT and William C. BRAMWELL from Harberts Creek Brethren Wilson MONCRIEF, William WEST and John STEPHENS. From White River Alexander CHAMBERS, Michael MONROE, Abraham WALTON, William CHAMBERS From Scaffold Lick Valentine CHASTINE Samuel SELLERS and Samuel ELDER from Graham's Fork Benoni HOLLINGSEAD.

Whereupon Brother Isaiah BLANKENSHIP was chosen moderator of this counsel and Brother William C. BRAMWELL clerk the Brethren wishing to become a constitution handed in their articles of faith which were the articles of faith of the Silver Creek Association and consequently agreed to next handed in their letters of dismission from Grahams Fork which were accepted as also the members in full fellowship the mind of the Brethren called for and they remain of the same mind which they were when they sent for helps. After singing and prayer to the throne of God's grace for his blessing on the Church by Brother BAKER proceeded to give the right hand of fellowship and thereby acknowledging them a Church after which Brother PELEG BAKER gave them the charge the counsel adjourned.

Articles of Faith

1st We believe in one only true and living God the Father the word (or son) and Holy Ghost equal in wisdom power and glory,----
2nd We believe the scriptures of the old and New Testament to be of divine authority and the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
3rd We believe in the total depravity of human nature and that a recovery from that situation is wholly and entirely of the sovreign free unmerited grace of God in Christ Jesus.
4th We believe that God purposed in himself for his own glory to make a display of his wisdom power justice goodness and truth in the works of creation which he hath made in the dispensation of his providence.
5th We believe that God from eternity purposed to save a people from their sins for his holy name sake and that in infinite wisdom he devised the plan and appointed every mean necessary to accomplish the great end of their redemption which he effects in his own time by the operation of his holy spirit.
6th We believe that Sinners are justified before God alone by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ.
7th We believe all such as are born of the spirit of God are kept by the power of God through unto eternal salvation.
8th We believe that good works are the effects of the faith of God's elect and follow being born of the Spirit and in this point of view are evidences of a gracious state.
9th We believe Baptism and the Lord's supper are ordinances of the gospel instituted by Jesus Christ and none but those who profess faith in Christ and obedience to his will are fit subjects for either.
10th We believe immersion according to the scriptures and apostolic practice to be the only proper baptism.
11th We believe the sanctity of the first day of the week or Lord's day ought to be observed and spent in the public or private worship of God and that we should abstain from our worldly concerns except in cases of necessity and mercy.
12th We believe in the resurrection of the body both of the just and unjust and that God will judge the world in righteousness by that man who hath appointed.
13th We believe the righteous will forever abide in the peaceful presence of God their redeemer and his pardoning grace and redeeming love be the theme of their song while the wicked shall remain in everlasting torment.

Dear Brethren:
At the present time our church seems to be in a better condition than last year yet we are not doing as much for the cause as it is our priviledge.

We have added a few to number by baptism ... have lost some of our best members by death. Statistics:

How much rest is needed
Rest for weary feet, toiling hands,
Acheing head and troubled heart.
How sweet how refreshing the rest of the soul as it dwells in the presence of Christ. Of all the thoughts of God there are,
Born inward into Souls afar;
Now tell me if there any is
For gifts of grace surpassing best
He giveth his beloved rest.
Rest on Sister rest on in the home of the soul.
We do not wish thee back to earth
A few more passing days
Shall bring us to and God
Then we shall meet to rest so sweete
For he giveth his beloved sleep.
With the berived (sic) family we sympathise and for them we pray that God will give them rest.
