The Fall of Man

First Baptist Church of Oxford, MI              Article III: Articles of Faith

Section 7.  The Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in innocence, in the image and likeness of God, under the law of his Maker, but by voluntary transgression Adam fell from his sinless and happy state, and all men sinned in him, in consequence of which all men are totally depraved, partakers of Adam’s fallen nature, and sinners by nature and by conduct, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility become sinners in thought, word and deed, under just condemnation without defense or excuse.
