what we believe

We Believe...
 
  • The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God.  It is our sole rule of faith and practice.
 

 
  • God is Spirit, infinite, personal, eternal, and unchangeable in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, grace, goodness, and truth.
 

 
  • Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins.
 

 
  • Jesus was physically resurrected to purchase a place in heaven for us which He offers as a free gift, providing the only way of salvation.
 

 
  • The Holy Spirit indwells the heart of every Christian and empowers us through His filling, His anointing, and His gifts.
 

 
  • The Trinity consists of three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - in one God.
 

 
  • God created man in His own image and in a state of innocence, but that through temptation man willfully transgressed.  As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and the wages for their sin is death.
 

 
  • The church's primary mission is to preach the gospel to all the world, reaching non-believers and discipling them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
 

 
  • A true believer is secure in Christ forever and is called to live a holy life.
 

 
  • The ordinances of the church are believer's baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper.
 

 
  • Our Lord Jesus Christ will physically return to this earth and rule for one thousand years prior to the establishment of His new kingdom.
 

 
  • After the final judgment, those who are believers shall live forever in the presence of God and those who have rejected Christ will be separated from God in a place of eternal torment.
 
  • More extensive explanation of these beliefs with Scripture references may be found in the Baptist Faith and Message, adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention.  The full text of that statement is available here
