Calvary Baptist Church - Satement of Faith

The Bible


We believe that the bible is God’s written word given to mankind. It was given by inspiration. (2 Tim 3:16) This is the Holy Spirit of God, filling a man and speaking through him. (2 Peter 1:21) It was preserved by God through the writing of the men who penned it, through the copying of it through the ages, and through the translation of it by the King James translators into English, the universal language. We believe the King James Bible is the perfect, preserved, word of God for the English speaking people. (Psalms 12:6-7) We receive it as the words of God, and the King James Bible is the only bible to be used in teaching and preaching. 1 Thess 2:13, Acts 17:11

The Godhead


We believe in the trinity of God. God is the creator, and sustainer of all things. He is all powerful, all knowing, all present, and eternally existing. Manifesting Himself in three separate persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one, but distinct in person and function. 1 John 5:7, Deut 6:4, 2 Cor 13:14

The Deity of Christ


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, was God manifested in the flesh. He was born of a virgin, through the Holy Spirit, and lived as a man without sin. Only God could pay for the sins of the whole world, past, present, and future. His bodily resurrection from the dead was proof of his deity. 1 Tim 3:16, John 1:1, John 1:14, Is 7:14, Matt 1:21-23, Rom 1:3-4

Salvation


We believe that all men need to be saved from their sins, which are taking them to a literal HELL. Salvation is as simple as A,B,C.

A) Admit you are a sinner, and that your sins are taking you to hell. Rom 3:23, Rom 3:10, Rev 21:8

B) Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ (God in the flesh) came and died in your place on the cross of Calvary, was buried, and arose again on the third day. 1 Cor 15:1-4, Rom 5:8-9, Acts 16:31

C) Call upon the Lord to be saved. This is where you, in your own words, accept the free gift of salvation. Rom 10:9-10, Rom 10:13

Note: Salvation is a free gift, received by accepting what Jesus Christ did for you. There are no works of righteousness, or religious rituals involved. Eh 2:8-9, Titus 3:5

Eternal Security


We believe that when a man is saved, the Holy Spirit comes and lives inside of him, and his soul is saved for eternity, and will never die or perish. 1 John 5:13, John 10:28-29, Rom 8:33-39

Rapture


We believe in a pre-tribulation rapture of all saved believers, where the Lord will come and call all saved believers up into heaven, both the dead and the living. 1 Cor 15:12-50, 1 Thess 4:13-18

Premillenial Return of the Lord Jesus Christ


We believe in the 2nd advent. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will come back literally, and set up his kingdom and rule and reign for 1,000 years as KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev 19:11-16, Rev 20:1-6

Ordinances


We believe in two ordinances given to the church by Jesus Christ.

1) Water Baptism

We believe that after a man is saved, he should follow the Lord in believers baptism. This is not a part of his salvation, but an answer of a good conscience toward God. The believer does this to make a public profession, that he is trusting in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, which baptism by immersion pictured in 1 Pet 3:21, Acts 8:35-37, Matt 28:19-20.

2) The Lords Supper

We believe that a believer should partake of the Lords Supper periodically, to remind him of what the Lord has done for him. When he does this, he should examine himself to see if there is any controversy between him and the Lord, and get it settled before he partakes of the Lords Supper. This is done for a remembrance, and a restoration of fellowship. 1 for 11:23-33

Holy Living


We believe that after a man is saved, he should strive to live a holy and righteous life, being obedient to the Holy Spirit inside of him, and the holy scriptures. At the end of his life, he will stand before the Lord and give an account of his life. Rom 12:1-2, 2 Cor 5:10
