At Grace Bible Church we make, 

mature, and multiply disciples of Jesus

Doctrinal Statement

1) Scriptures

We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as being verbally inspired and completely inerrant in the

original writings, and of supreme and final authority in faith and life (Matthew 5:17-18; Luke 24:27, 44; John 10:35; 

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).

2) God

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:17-19; Mark 12:29;

John 6:27; Acts 5:3-4; Hebrews 1:8, 2 Corinthians 13:14).

3) Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born to the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man

(Matthew 1:16, 20-25; Luke 2:40, 52; Luke 7:48; John 11:35; Philippians 2:5-8).

4) Holy Spirit

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to witness to and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ (John 15:26; 16:13, 14); and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and effective service.

5) Mankind

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also that

spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature. In addition, we believe God created man as male and female only and that one's life-long gender is determined at conception in the womb. (Genesis 1:26; Genesis 2:17; Genesis 6:5; Psalm 14:1-3; Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:10-19; Romans 8:6-7; Ephesians 2:1-3; Genesis 5:1-2; Psalm 139:13-16; Jeremiah 1:4-5; Matthew 19:4).

6) The Death of Christ, Our Sacrifice

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood (John 1:29; John 3:16; Romans 3:25-26; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

7) The Resurrection of Christ, Our Advocate

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His present life for us as High Priest and Advocate (John 20:20; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 2:1).

8) The Return of Christ, Our Hope

We believe in "that blessed hope," the personal, pre-millennial, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

(John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

9) Salvation

We believe that all who receive, by faith, the Lord Jesus Christ, are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God and have eternal life (John 1:12; 3:12; 5:24; John 10:27-29; Acts 16:31; Romans 8:28-39; Titus 3:5; Jude 24).

10) Future

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost (Luke 16:19-26; John 5:25-29; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:11-15).

11) Ordinances

We believe in two ordinances: the Lord's Supper and the rite of Baptism by immersion.
