|At Grace Baptist Church we are still preaching the Old |
|Book (King James Bible), the Old Faith (Jeremiah 6:16), |
and singing the Old Hymns.
Statement of Faith
|We believe the Bible is verbally inspired, infallible, and is the only |
|authoritative source of doctrine and precept.|
|We believe the Bible is comprised of 66 inerrant writings, which holy men of |
|God penned as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.|
|We believe the Word of God to be the King James Bible in the English |
|We believe in one God, eternally existent, and manifested in three equal |
|persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.|
|We believe in the deity, virgin birth, and bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus |
|We believe that man was created in the image of God but, as a result of |
|sin, is lost and powerless to save himself.|
|We believe that the only hope for man is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, |
|the virgin-born Son of God, who died upon the cross to take upon Himself |
the punishment for the sin of all mankind, and who rose from the dead, so
that by receiving Him as Saviour, man is redeemed by the payment of His
|We believe that salvation is "by grace" plus nothing and minus nothing. The |
|conditions to salvation are repentance and faith.|
|We believe that men are justified by faith alone and are accounted |
|righteous before God only through the merit of our Saviour the Lord Jesus |
|We believe in the 'Eternal Security' of the believer; that it is impossible for |
|one born into the family of God ever to be lost, justification is an eternal |
relationship that can never be broken.
|We believe the Holy Spirit indwells those who receive Christ for the purpose |
|of enabling them to live righteous and holy lives.|
|We believe in the visible, personal, pre-tribulation, and pre-millennial return |
|of Jesus Christ.|
|We believe in a literal Heaven (a place where the saved go to be with their |
|Saviour) and a literal Hell (a place of real fire and separation from God for |
those who have not received the Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ – not
including those who are younger than God's age of accountability).
|We believe the mission of the church is not to be a political, economic, or |
|social aid, but is to nurture and disciple Believers as well as propagate and |
promote worldwide evangelization.
|We believe the two ordinances of the church are baptism of Believers by |
|immersion, and the memorial of the Lord's supper until He returns. Neither |
ordinance is required for salvation -- both are done as acts of obedience.
