WHAT BAPTISTS BELIEVE
  • That the Holy Bible is the Inspired Word of God – the Christian’s sole authority in matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21)
  • That God exists as a Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
  • That every human is born with a sinful nature – an inherent tendency toward evil. (Romans 3:10, 23)
  • That Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth to give Himself as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world, and that God mercifully extends salvation from sin’s penalty to all who believe in Him. (John 3:16-18, I John 2:1-2)
  • That the Holy Spirit indwells every believer to develop within them the character of Christ and empower them for His service. (Ephesians 1:13-14, Galatians 5:22-23, Romans 12:6-8)
  • That the Church has two ordinances reserved for believers only: Baptism, in obedience to Christ’s command; and Communion, the symbolic remembrance of Christ’s death on our behalf. (Matthew 28:19, Luke 22:19-20)
  • That the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is impending. (Matthew 24:44)
  • That eternal reward in Heaven is the inheritance of every believer, and eternal punishment in Hell the destiny of all who reject God’s gracious offer of salvation in Jesus Christ. (John 5:28-29, Revelation 20:11-21:8)
