WHAT WE BELIEVE:
Salvation is exclusively and simply given by belief in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. A change of mind (Repentance) regarding any alternate modes of salvation is implicit with genuine belief. (John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8,9)
God is a Trinity as has been the consistent belief of baptists since the apostolic era. We reject modalism or any teaching that rejects the Trinity. Three separate persons that are one God as described in John 1:1,14. 1 John 5:7.
The Bible is the final authority in all matters. It is to be interpreted literally unless contextually directed otherwise. The KJV is the Divinely sanctioned Bible for the English speaking world. (2 Tim.3:16)
The second coming of Christ is literal and is followed by His literal millennial reign on Earth. (Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:16)
The Independent, Fundamental Baptist Church and it’s common distinctives are biblically and historically recognized as the ideal model for gospel ministry (Matthew 16:18, 22:18-20)
Effective and legitimate leadership in gospel ministry should be conducted with a loving spirit and in separation from worldliness in music, attire, deportment, addictions and morality. (Galatians 5:21-23)
Ecclesiastical separation from all manner of inter-faith, ecumenical or any group which departs from the fundamentals of Christian faith will be maintained. (2 Corinthians 6:14, Galatians 1:6-9)
All ministry will be conducted in a traditional, biological family-friendly setting. Persons which pursue any manner of sexual deviancy, ultimately endangering children, will not be welcomed in public ministry on any occasion. (Mark 9:42)
Looking for fellowship?
Due to the widespread need for fellowship with like-minded believers, we are compiling a worldwide list of sound churches and Christian groups. Check out the entries below to see if there are any near to you!
Please add the details of those you're aware of.
The rules for submissions are - The church / home group MUST teach sound doctrine. We are aware that no fellowship is perfect, but abiding by the key principles of the Christian faith is absolutely necessary. Please do NOT add any cults or sects where the political / ecumenical / N.A.R. agenda is present.
If you attend a listing and find any of these issues, please contact us to remove it.
Thanks, and we hope you benefit from this feature.
