Article IV of the Constitution of The Reformed Baptist Church of Grand Rapids:
"We regard the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689 (excepting the assertions regarding the salvation of the mentally incompetent [10:3]) and the identity of the antichrist [26:4] and the Canons of Dortrecht (excluding Article 17 of the first head of doctrine) as excellent, though not inspired, expressions of the teaching of the Word of God. Because we acknowledge the word of God written to be the supreme authority in all matters of faith, morals, and order, we adopt these two historic documents as our doctrinal standards. We find them to be an assistance in controversy, a confirmation in faith, and a means of edification in righteousness."
