For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
The Word of God Baptist Church is a local, autonomous, Bible believing congregation that preaches, teaches, and practices the Biblical principles of a New Testament Church, as the Bible instructs.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God, providentially preserved in the English Authorized King James Version, and as such, is "the holy scriptures" and thereby "given by inspiration of God." (Proverbs 30:5; Psalm 12:6-7; II Timothy 3:15-17)
We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His vicarious blood atonement on Calvary, His bodily resurrection, and His second coming. (John 1:1; Isaiah 7:14; I John. 2:1-2)
We believe salvation is "by grace through faith" in the finished work of Jesus Christ, and "not by works of righteousness which we have done." (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5)
We believe the Bible position that the believer's soul is eternally secure after salvation. (Ephesians 4:30, Romans 8:38-39)
We believe that water baptism is for the regenerated believer and is by immersion in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. (Matthew 28:19)
We believe baptism and the Lord's Supper constitute the only two scriptural ordinances for the church, but neither has any saving power (Luke 22:19)
