Our Beliefs

Southern Baptists have prepared a statement of generally held convictions called The Baptist Faith and Message. The topics here provide only a brief, partial summary. The full text on the issue discussed is also available.

 

The Scriptures

We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men, divinely inspired with God for its author and salvation for its end.  The Scriptures reveal the principles by which GOd will judge us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried.  
 

God

There is one and only one living and true God. God exists as One God in Three Persons; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. 
 

Man

Man was created by the special act of God, in His own image. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race.  The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore every man possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
 

Salvation

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and glorification.
 

God's Purpose of Grace

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. "All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end.
 

The Church

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. This church is an autonomous body. The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ, which includes all of the redeemed of all the ages.
 

Baptism & the Lord's Supper

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. "It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.

The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members " memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
 

The Lord's Day

The first day of the week is the Lord's Day. "It commemorates the resurrection of Christ from the dead and should be employed in exercises of worship and spiritual devotion.
 

Last Things

God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. "Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly"the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell. "The righteous" will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.
 

Evangelism & Missions

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations " to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by personal effort.

 

Stewardship

God is the source of all blessings, temporal and spiritual; all that we have and are we owe to Him. Christians have a spiritual debtorship to the whole world, a holy trusteeship in the gospel, and a binding stewardship in their possessions. They are therefore under obligation to serve Him with their time, talents, and material possessions.

 

Religious Liberty

Church and state should be separate. The state owes to every church protection and full freedom in the pursuit of its spiritual ends. A free church in a free state is the Christian ideal.
