What We Believe
Community Baptist Church is a local, autonomous, evangelistic, KJV, Bible-believing congregation preaching, teaching, and practicing the principles of a New Testament Church as taught in the Word of God.
We believe the absolute, sole, authoritative rule for faith and practice is the perfect, preserved word of God, which, for English-speaking people, is the King James Bible (Psalm 12:6-7).
We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His vicarious death for sinners, His literal, bodily resurrection and His literal, bodily return to this earth to reign for a thousand years (1 Tim 3:16).
We believe that any religious person who depends upon the sacraments, the Golden Rule, the church or the ten commandments to justify themselves before God will be condemned at the White Throne Judgment and banished to the Lake of Fire for trusting their own righteousness instead of Jesus Christ’s righteousness (Rom 4:5).
We believe that Believers baptism is a Scriptural ordinance for born again followers of Christ and is, as demonstrated in the Bible, an immersion in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Mat 28:19). Romans 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper constitute the only two Scriptural ordinances for the church, but neither has any saving power (Luke 22:19).
The Way of Salvation
All Have Sinned
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: (Rom 3:10).
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:23).
There is a Penalty for Sin – Eternal Death
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom 6:23).
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Heb 9:27).
God’s Provision for Your Sinful Condition – Jesus Christ
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8).
Yield to God Now
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation: (Rom 10:9-10).
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom 10:13).
Please be Saved
Pray and ask the Lord, “Lord Jesus, be merciful to me a sinner, and save me. I now, with a repentant heart, receive you as my personal Saviour.”
If you have received Christ as a result of this message, please feel free to contact us to let us know, and we’ll be glad to pray for you and answer any questions you might have.
We believe in the eternal security of every true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. Once Born Again by the Spirit of God, that new life is eternal. John 10:28-29 - And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
We believe that Christians should strive to live godly lives and separate themselves by grace from the world, its lusts and entanglements. They should encourage and minister to one another and give liberally to the support of any Bible-believing ministry that is actively winning people to Jesus Christ (Rom 12:1).
Church and State
We believe in the separation of church and state and that the state has no business dictating to any local church how they should conduct their services, ministries, business, or property matters (Acts 5:29).
Second Coming of Jesus Christ
We believe in the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ to this earth to catch out his “bride,” before Daniel’s Seventieth Week (the “Time of Jacob’s Troubles”) takes place and that He will return after the “Marriage of the Lamb” to reign over the House of Jacob” at Jerusalem on the “Throne of David” (John 14:3).
Please accept our warmest invitation to come and hear the preaching of the Word of God with us in person. If we may be of any help to you spiritually, please call or come visit us.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our church web site. This site by no means fully describes our church but hopefully provides you an overview of who we are and more importantly what we believe. We do this in an effort to try and let people know a little about us before they decide to visit. We do not pressure anyone to give a certain amount, dress a certain way, or be someone they are not.
We are traditional in our worship, music and preaching. Many have described us as “old fashioned” and we believe that is a
fair assessment. We are not charismatic. We do not practice speaking in tongues, or believe in extra biblical revelation through visions or dreams.
