In the foregoing pages we have sought to
present to the reader a declaration of those things
surely believed by us. In no sense have we sought to
formulate a creed, or to attempt to fix upon any
individual or meeting a man-made bond. Every reader
will probably find that we have omitted some item of
truth that he holds to be vital. The limitations of a

pleasing unto Him, and if what we hold and believe is
in harmony with His Word, rightly divided, it is a
small thing with us to be judged by man's judgment. He
that judgeth us is the Lord.
Nevertheless we would hasten to add that not one word
has been purposely written to injure
or wound unnecessarily either saint or sinner, friend
or foe. Above all things we trust the reader will
emulate the Bereans, who 'searched the Scriptures
daily to see whether those things were so'. Then, our
responsibility ends, and the reader's begins.
May the God of all grace be pleased to use this
declaration to His glory and the
enlightenment or confirmation of His believing people.
