Anchor Baptist Church Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, Truth without error, sufficient for all our needs, and final authority for faith and life.
We believe in the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; Who is holy, loving, good, wise, and almighty; Who has created all things by His word out of nothing, who sustains, provides for, and rules all things; Who is our only redeemer, and Who will judge all people.
We believe that God created men & women in His image & likeness for fellowship with Himself. We believe that He instituted marriage between man and woman only, and assigned humanity to carry out the creation mandate to multiply, tend the earth and all its inhabitants.
We believe that Adam sinned and by his descendants the entire human race was alienated from God, are depraved, and totally lost.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is fully God, and became a man in order to become the perfect sacrifice for our sins; that He died on the cross, and rose again to defeat Satan and the grave; and returned to be with the Father, and sent the Holy Spirit to intercede for His people.
We believe that salvation exists only through repentance of sins and faith in Jesus Christ & His finished work. We believe that Christ calls, regenerates, justifies, forgives, sanctifies, keeps, and glorifies His people.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who has been sent to complete & perfect in us all the works Jesus did for us. We believe the Spirit convicts of sin, regenerates, sanctifies, gives gifts for ministry, and assures us of our salvation.
We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, the bodily resurrection of believers, and the final judgment of the saved and unsaved. We believe in the eternal presence of the saved with Christ, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
