Our Beliefs

THE BIBLE

We believe the Scriptures, composed of the Old and New Testaments, are Godís inspired, inerrant, infallible Word, and are the supreme standard and final authority for all conduct, faith and doctrine. We believe the King James Bible is the preserved Word of God for the English speaking world. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21, Psalms 119:160)  

GOD

We believe in one and only one true God, eternally existent in three distinct persons - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit - each having the same divine essence, glorious attributes and eternal purpose; but executing distinct, yet harmonious offices in the work of redemption. Each Person is wholly and fully God, yet there is only one God. (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Revelation 1:4-6

JESUS CHRIST

We believe that Jesus Christ is God. He is without beginning and without end. To become a man, He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He led a sinless life, was crucified as the payment for our sins, and was resurrected bodily after three days. We believe in His personal, future return in power and glory. (John 1:1-2; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:20-21; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Acts 1:9,11)

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the Holy Spirit administered on the Day of Pentecost.  His purpose is to reveal Christ to men, to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; and that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration; He indwells, seals, and illuminates the believer; we believe the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as tongues and the gift of healing were temporary and not permanent. (1 Corinthians 1:22; 13:22; Hebrews 2:2-4; John 14:16-17; Romans 8:9)

MANKIND

Adam and Eve were created sinless in God's image, but chose to disobey their Creator and Father. As a consequence of their willful sin, all mankind has inherited a sinful nature and falls under God's judgment. (Ephesians 2:1-3; Romans 1:28, 5:12; Galatians 3:22)

SATAN

We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin and the cause of the fall of man;  that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and that he shall be eternally punished in the lake of fire. (Job 1:6-7; Isaiah 14:12-17; Matthew 4:2-11; Revelation 20:10)

SALVATION

Salvation is obtained freely and solely by God's grace (no works involved) through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ Who died in our place and paid our sin-debt in full, once and for all. Without the shedding of Jesus' blood, there is no forgiveness for sin. A person is saved by realizing his sinful condition, repenting of his sin, and by faith calling on the name of Jesus Christ. (John 3:16-18; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10, 13; Acts 4:12; Acts 20:21)

CHURCH

We believe that the Local New Testament Church is the body of Christ, established when Jesus called out the 12 apostles. It is composed of born again believers, baptized by immersion, associated for worship, service, and the spread of the Gospel of the grace of God to all the world. (Matthew 10:1-2; 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-42, 47; Ephesians 4:11; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; Philippians 2:4; John 3:34;
1 Corinthians 11:26, 1 Corinthians. 12:13,27-28)

BAPTISM

Baptism is one of the ordinances that Christ put under the authority of the local church. Biblical baptism is the immersion of a believer in water, after his decision for salvation. The purpose of baptism is to publicly identify with Jesus' death, burial and resurrection and is the door to church membership upon reception of the church. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Acts 2:42; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:3-55)

LORDíS SUPPER

The Lord's Supper is the second ordinance that Christ left His church. It serves as a time for personal introspection and a reminder to believers of Christ's sufferings on the cross and the blood He shed to pay the penalty for our sin debt.  Defined as a church ordinance, we practice administering the Lord's Supper only for members of Bible Baptist Church in good standing. (Luke 22:19-20; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:20; 1 Corinthians11:24-34)
