Grace Baptist Church Statement of Faith

 

Grace Baptist Church is a Missionary Baptist Church with the following cherished and time honored beliefs:

 

There is one God: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; who subsist in the unity and also as three separate and distinct Persons.

 

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin as both God and man. He was indeed the God-Man. He lived a sinless life, was crucified and died to atone for sins, was buried, arose from the grave the third day, ascended into heaven and will literally return to earth as He promised.

 

The Holy Spirit is the divine helper, comforter, assistant, counselor, instructor, and His work is to reveal Jesus Christ, convict of sin, lead sinners to repentance, guide believers, comfort, strengthen, and sanctify the soul. His work will always point to and bring Glory the Lord Jesus Christ!

 

The Bible is God’s Holy inerrant, infallible, and inspired Word of God. It is indeed without error and is the sole authority for life.

 

Human beings are the special creations of God, made in His very image and likeness. They fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and because of this all human beings are sinners in need of Salvation!

 

Salvation is a gift through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ alone. Every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend Eternity in Heaven. However all those who die Lost in their Sins will spend Eternity in Hell.

 

Baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christ’s command. It is public proclamation of one’s acceptance of God’s Salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. However Baptism is no way a means of Salvation.

 

Each and every believer has Direct Access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ is our mediator and intercessor, through which we approach our Heavenly Father.

 

Finally, The Church is a local body of Baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head!
