History of Tuttle Church

  1. All men by natureare sinners in the sight of God. They inherited their sinful nature fromthe first man Adam. They are dead in trespasses and sins. While in thiscondition, they cannot please God. There is nothing in them that wouldcause them to approach God, and if it were not for the love and mercy ofGod, they would be forever and eternally lost.


( Romans 5:12; 1 Corinthians 2:9-14; Romans 3:10-18; Romans 8:5-8;Ephesians 2:1-10; Psalms 10:1-11; Psalms 14:1-4; Jeremiah 13:23; Jeremiah17:9 )

2. Before the world began, God chose or elected, outof this lost and dying race of Adam, a great and innumerable multitude{out of every kindred, tongue, people, and nation} to live with Him inHeaven. This choice {ELECTION}, which resulted in their eternal salvation,was not based on their works or their freewill, but was based upon theconditions of the Everlasting Covenant which was made with the Father,Son, and the Holy Spirit before the foundation of the world. This Covenantembraced the work of the Son of God, who at the appointed time of the Father,was made flesh, died for the sins of all that was given to Him by the Father.{ These are referred to in scripture as Elect, Beloved, Sheep, Childrenof Promise, Saints, Sons, Brethren, and the Sanctified.}

3. The atonement for sin by the blood of the Lord JesusChrist, {theEternal Son of God made flesh} was shed for the elect only.{ those that were chosen by the Father and give to the Son} Every singleone of these for whom Christ Jesus died will receive eternal life and shalllive with Him in the Eternal Heaven after this life is ended.


( Matthew 1:21; Hebrews 2:13-18; 1 Peter 1:18-21; 1 Peter 3:18;Hebrews 10:1-18; Romans 8:32-35)

4. All those who were elected by the Father and redeemedby the Son shall be drawn to God by the Holy Spirit. 

{This is referred to in scripture as: a quickening;being born again; circumcision of the heart; a translation; hearing thevoice of the Son of God; a resurrection; baptism of the Holy Spirit; andregeneration.} Nothing shall hinder God from carrying out His eternal purpose,which is to save all of the objects of His love.


( Psalms 110:3; Psalms 115:1-3; Daniel 4:34-35; John 6:37; John17:2; John 5:24-26; John 10:27-28; John 5:21; Psalms 104:29-31; Ephesians2:1-10; Colossians 1:12-15; Colossians 2:9-15; Romans 2: 23-29; 1Corinthians12:12-14; John 3:3-8; Titus 3:4-7; 1 Peter 1:23 )

5. None of those chosen by the Father, redeemed bythe Son, and born of the Holy Spirit, shall ever be eternally lost, becausethey are preserver by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and kept by thePower of the God the Father.
