What We Believe

Windsor Park Baptist Church

 Our Beliefs 

 

The Trinity – Three persons, one God

We believe in one God, eternally existent as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; I Timothy 2:5)

The Bible – Inerrant, Inspired, Authoritative

We believe that the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is God’s inspired and infallible Word, and is the supreme standard and final authority for all conduct, faith, and doctrine. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21)

Jesus Christ – Fully God, Fully Man

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal bodily return in power and glory. (John 1:1, 14; Titus 2:11-14)

The Holy Spirit-

We believe in the personality of the Holy Spirit and that His ministry is to reveal Christ to men, to convict of sin, to regenerate repentant sinners and, by His presence and power, to sanctify the lives of the redeemed. (John 16:7, 8, 12-15)

Condition of Humankind – Fallen and in need of salvation

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but by willful transgression became sinful and is justly under condemnation and the wrath of Almighty God. (Gen. 1:27, Gen. 3:13)

We believe that the only salvation from this guilt and condemnation is through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that salvation is the free gift of God’s love and grace. (Titus 3:5; I Peter 1:3-5) A person comes to salvation by: admitting you are a sinner, believing Jesus Christ died for your sin and calling on the Lord Jesus to save you.

Baptism and Communion

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ instituted the ordinances of baptism and communion. Baptism is only to be administered upon profession of faith in Christ, by immersion, thereby declaring our faith in a crucified, buried and risen Savior. Communion is only for believers, to be preceded by self-examination, and is in remembrance of the Lord’s death until He comes. (Acts 8:36; I Corinthians 11:24-34)

We believe the New Testament Church is a body of believers, baptized by immersion, associated for worship, service, and to spread the gospel of Christ to all the world. (Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:22-24)
