Fundamentalism

As defined by the World Congress of Fundamentalists in 1976:

A Fundamentalist is a born-again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ who:

  1. Maintains an immovable allegiance to the inerrant, infallible, and verbally Inspired Bible;

  2. Believes whatever the Bible says is so;

  3. Judges all things by the Bible, and is judged only by the Bible;

  4. Affirms the foundational truths of the historic Christian Faith:

    • The doctrine of the Trinity

    • The incarnation, virgin birth, substitutionary atonement, bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, and Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ

    • The new birth through regeneration of the Holy Spirit

    • The resurrection of saints to life eternal

    • The resurrection of the ungodly to final judgment and eternal death

    • The fellowship of the saints, who are the body of Christ;

  5. Practices fidelity to that faith, and endeavours to preach it to every creature;

  6. Exposes and separates from all ecclesiastical denial of that Faith, compromise with error, and apostasy from the Truth; and

  7. Earnestly contends for the Faith once delivered.

Therefore, Fundamentalism is a militant orthodoxy with a soul winning zeal. While Fundamentalists may differ on certain interpretations of Scripture, we join in unity of heart and common purpose for the defence of the Faith and the preaching of the Gospel, without compromise or division.

Unless a man holds and defends the Faith of Scripture, and is concerned for the salvation of the lost, he is not a true Fundamentalist.

A Fundamentalist is a man who takes up arms from the armoury of grace and goes forth strong in the Lord and in the power of His might to contend for the Faith.
