Our Statement of Faith

A Bible Baptist is one who believes in a supernatural Bible which tells of a supernatural Christ, Who had a supernatural birth, Who spoke supernatural words, Who performed supernatural miracles, Who lived a supernatural life, Who died a supernatural death, Who rose in supernatural splendour, Who intercedes as a supernatural Priest, and Who will one day return in supernatural glory to establish a supernatural kingdom on the earth.

I. Of the Scriptures

We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men supernaturally inspired; that it has truth without any admixture of error for its matter; and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man; that it is the true centre of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.

  1. By “ The Holy Bible” we mean that collection of sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelation, which, as originally written, does not only contain and convey the Word of God, but IS the very Word of God.
  2. By “inspiration” we mean that the books of the Bible were written by holy men of old, as they were moved by the Holy Spirit, in such a definite way that their writings were super naturally and verbally inspired and free from error, as no other writings have ever been or ever will be inspired.
  3. God has providentially preserved His Word, for His people, in that which has been through the ages received as His Word, the Masoretic Text of the Old Testament and the Received Text (Textus Receptus) of the New Testament.

II. Of the True God

We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Maker and supreme Ruler of heaven and earth, inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible honour, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.

III. Of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature; that He was active in the creation; that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains the Evil One until God’s purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts of sin, of judgment and of righteousness; that He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the Agent in the new birth; that He seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies and helps the believer.
