Faith Baptist Church
2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Pet. 1:24-25
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: that these are equal in every divine perfection, and they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and spiritual death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.
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.
Salvation is due to God’s grace alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Salvation is necessary for eternal life (John 3:3).
Salvation is achieved through God’s love through which He gave His only Son to die on the cross for our redemption (John 3:16).
True salvation will result in (but is not effected by) good works (Ephesians 2:10).
When we are saved, we are declared righteous in God’s sight (Rom 3:24-26). We never fear losing this salvation for it cannot be lost (Rom 8:30-33).
We are not, however, righteous in our actions (Rom 3:23). It has everything to do with what Jesus did at the cross
Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, it is a believer identifying with christ.
The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of our Redeemer Jesus Christ.
