Calvary Baptist Church

We Believe

The purpose of this church shall be the edification of the saints and evangelism. It shall seek to attain this end through the public worship of God, the preaching of the gospel, consistent Christian living by its members, personal evangelism, missionary endeavor and Christian education.

WE BELIEVE that the King James Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is verbally inspired of God and inerrant in the original writings, and is the supreme and final authority in faith and life.

WE BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit as the vital element in the revelation of Christ in the operation of the Christian Faith.

WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is true God and true man, and is the only sufficient Mediator between God and man.

WE BELIEVE in the power of the Holy Spirit to grant gifts to the body as in ICor:12, for the furthering of Gods will within that church and for the glorification of the Lord.

WE BELIEVE that man was created in the “image of God”, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which resulted in separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and are now sinners, and sin by choice, positively inclined to evil and are, therefore, under just condemnation to eternal ruin, without defense or excuse.

WE BELIEVE in the vicarious death of the Lord Jesus Christ for our sins, in the resurrection of His body, His ascension into Heaven, His personal and visible return, and that salvation is received only through personal faith in Him.

WE BELIEVE in baptism by immersion of a believer in water, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, setting forth the essential facts of redemption: the death and resurrection of Christ; also essential facts in the experience of the believer: death to sin and resurrection to newness of life.

WE BELIEVE that the Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the Lord’s death until He comes and should always be preceded by solemn self-examination of the believer himself.

WE BELIEVE that a New Testament Church is a body of believers thus baptized, associated for worship, service, and the spread of the Gospel in all the world.
