What We Believe

  • We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each having the same attributes and perfections.
  • We believe in God the Father, Who is eternal and unchanging in His character.
  • We believe that God the Son was manifested in the flesh, born of a virgin, being both God and man in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in His sacrificial death for sinners, His physical resurrection, His intercession for us before the Father, and in His literal return.
  • We believe that God the Holy Spirit is personal, that He indwells every believer from the moment of their salvation, that He fills them and works sanctification in them.
  • We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the infallible Word of God, that they are verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit, and therefore without error.  We believe that the 66 books of the Bible are the sole authority for the faith and conduct of believers and churches.  The translation of the Bible that is used for public ministry at Grace Baptist Church is the King James Version (KJV).
  • We believe that the Genesis record of a literal six day creation of all things by God through His word is true and therefore we refuse every form of the theory of evolution.
  • We believe that salvation from sin is by grace through faith, that eternal life is the free gift of God wholly apart from good works, including sacraments, the keeping of the ten commandments, and deeds of charity. We believe that God sincerely offers freely to all men equally the forgiveness of their sins through repentance and personal faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ in His death for us on the cross.
  • We believe in the eternal security of the believer, that we are kept by the power of God, that it is impossible for one who is born again into the family of God through faith in Christ to ever be lost.
  • We believe in the priesthood of all believers, that every saint of God has equal standing before God, equal access to God, equality in the church and has no need of an earthly priest.
  • We believe in the existence and personality of the Devil, who is the adversary of God and man, and that he is destined for eternal punishment in the lake of fire with all who reject Christ.
  • We believe in the imminent rapture of the saints before the Tribulation and that the Lord Jesus Christ will return at the end of the Tribulation to rule in righteousness on the earth for a thousand years.
  • We believe that it is the work of every local church to win men to Christ and train them to convert the lost, bringing to them the blessing of eternal salvation through believing the Gospel. It is the aim of Grace Baptist Church to fulfil the commission of Christ to His disciples that we are to go into all the world and make disciples of all men.
  • Because we hold to these Bible truths, Grace Baptist Church practices separation from the doctrinal and moral error of cults.
