As Souther Baptists

We believe in the verbal plenary inspiration (thoughts and words) of the scriptures, and that it is divinely inspired in the original languages in which they were written.

We believe there is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. The eternal God reveals Himself to us through the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that man was created by the special act of God, in His own image and free from sin in the beginning. Since the time of Adam’s sin, all people are born into sin and possess a sinful nature.

We believe that salvation is only through accepting Jesus Christ as Savior. It is through Christ’s sacrifice that we find forgiveness and eternal life.

We believe that the New Testament church is God’s means of working in this age. It is comprised of baptized believers who associate themselves with it. It observes two ordinances: baptism and communion.

We believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the church. We believe that true believers will ultimately reside with Christ, while unbelievers will ultimately be consigned to Hell.

We believe it is the duty and privilege of every believer to make disciples of all nations.
