WHO WE ARE:

WE ARE A BODY OF BELIEVERS THAT LOVE JESUS AND ONE ANOTHER.  WE BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD, THAT HE WAS BORN AND LIVED A SINLESS LIFE, THAT HE WAS CRUCIFIED FOR OUR SINS, AND THAT HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD, AS SCRIPTURES PROCLAIM, AND THAT HE ASCENDED INTO THE HEAVENS TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR THOSE THAT BELIEVE IN AND FOLLOW HIM.  

WHAT WE BELIEVE

PROVIDENCE BAPTIST CHURCH AFFIRMS THE 2000 BAPTIST FAITH AND MESSAGE.


On June 14th, 2000, the Southern Baptist Convention adopted a revised summary of our faith. The committee’s report says in part:

“Baptists cherish and defend religious liberty, and deny the right of any secular or religious authority to impose a confession of faith upon a church or body of churches. We honor the principles of soul competency and the priesthood of believers, affirming together both our liberty in Christ and our accountability to each other under the Word of God.

Baptist churches, associations, and general bodies have adopted confessions of faith as a witness to the world, and as instruments of doctrinal accountability. We are not embarrassed to state before the world that these are doctrines we hold precious and as essential to the Baptist tradition of faith and practice.

As a committee, we have been charged to address the “certain needs” of our own generation. In an age increasingly hostile to Christian truth, our challenge is to express the truth as revealed in Scripture, and to bear witness to Jesus Christ, who is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”

The 1963 committee rightly sought to identify and affirm “certain definite doctrines that Baptists believe, cherish, and with which they have been and are now closely identified.” Our living faith is established upon eternal truths. “Thus this generation of Southern Baptists is in historic succession of intent and purpose as it endeavors to state for its time and theological climate those articles of the Christian faith which are most surely held among us.”

It is the purpose of this statement of faith and message to set forth certain teachings which we believe.”
