Preaching Regeneration to Every Generation
What We Believe
We believe that the Bible consists of 39 Books (Genesis - Malachi) compiled together and commonly known and referred to as the Old Testament, and 27 Books (Matthew - Revelation) compiled together and commonly known and referred to as the New Testament. And these combined 66 Books constitute the complete and finished Bible, the complete and finished revelation of God to man, and that there are NO new revelations or traditions for the Church today apart from what is written within the Scriptures.
Covenant Baptist Church stands on the absolute Sovereigty of God, in that He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." - Genesis 1:1 / "All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made." John 1:3 / "Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;" Acts 17:25
And that God has absolute authority to chose and do as He pleases. "But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased." Psalms 115:3
We believe that the Bible is sufficent in all matters of faith (what we believe), in practice (the way in which we live our lives), and doctrine (consisting of what and why we believe the way we do), and that no amount of human wisdom or science should ever be added to what God has writen and preserved for us concerning God's complete revelation to us through His word!
We believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the Power of God unto salvation, and that people are saved eternally by God's Grace through personal faith in the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus apart from any and all human merit or achievement.
We believe in Redemption and Forgiveness of sins through the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ! We believe that Justification is by "faith alone," and based wholly and completely upon the Redemption found in Christ alone.
We believe that true, biblical faith comes only through the "Ministry of the Holy Spirit" as He faithfully and effectually operates through the "ministry of the written Word."
We believe that no one will ever be saved apart from the drawing work of the Holy Spirit in reproving of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and His revelation of Jesus Christ to individual minds and hearts as their Lord and Saviour!
We stand firm in the Doctrines of God’s effectual grace which are able to save us, to transform us, and to preserve us unto His heavenly Kingdom.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who is God the Son, and that He is the only Saviour of this world.
We hold that only those who "believe with all their hearts" should be baptized, and that we are called to make disciples of all who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
We believe in a literal heaven and a literal hell, in the absolute necessity of the New Birth, that those who are born-again will spend eternity in heaven with God, and that those who are not born-again will spend eternity separated from God in a devil's hell.
Our Church holds firmly to the Trinity consisting of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
All our beliefs can be found in the Bible, and for us the Bible is our final authority in all matters of faith, doctrine, and practice. For a more detailed list of our beliefs please see:
