First Baptist Church of Oxford, MI Article III: Articles of Faith
Section 11. Separation
We believe, in obedience to the biblical commands, that believers and churches must separate from those who deny essential doctrines of the faith; that believers and churches must separate from those who compromise the faith by granting Christian recognition and fellowship to those who have denied essential doctrines of the faith; and that believers and churches must strive to reflect God’s holiness and Christlikeness, living differently than those who have not experienced the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
