We believe “that any group of Baptists, large or small, have the inherent right to draw up for themselves and publish to the world a confession of their faith whenever they think it advisable to do so…confessions are only guides and interpretations, having no authority over the conscience…therefore the sole authority for faith and practice among Baptists is Jesus Christ, whose will is revealed in the Holy Scriptures”… “We do not regard this confession as a complete statement of our faith, having any quality of finality or infallibility…We hold ourselves free to revise our statements of faith as may seem wise and expedient at any time.”
