Grace Missionary Baptist Church

The following statements reflect the beliefs and practices of our Church.

  1. The Holy Scriptures are verbally inspired and are sufficient to guide us in all spiritual matters.
  2. The Genesis account of creation is accurate and believable.
  3. God is an absolute sovereign, ruling everything according to His own pleasure.
  4. God exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  5. The Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin with no human father.
  6. The work of the Holy Spirit is to reprove the world of sin, righteousness and judgment to come and to draw, quicken, seal, and change the elect.
  7. Adam fell by transgression and plunged the human race into condemnation, and as a result, all men are totally depraved and in a lost condition.
  8. Justification is by faith in the work of Christ alone, without the works of man.
  9. All true believers are eternally secure as a result of Christ’s finished work.
  10. Jesus Christ arose bodily from the grave and is at the Father’s right hand until He returns in the pre-tribulation, premillenial rapture of the saints.
  11. Repentance and faith are inseparable graces.
  12. All men are commanded to obey the Gospel and submit themselves to God.
  1. Those who obey the Gospel will walk in good works.
  2. All who are born again will persevere according to God’s command.
  3. The Lord’s Church is a local, visible assembly of baptized believers called out to fulfill the commission and to be the pillar and ground of the truth.
  4. The commission is: to teach all nations, baptize and teach those who believe to observe all things commanded by our Lord.
  5. There are only two Church ordinances...baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
  6. Baptism must be according to scripture and must be rejected and readministered to those coming from unscriptural churches.
  7. The Lord’s Supper is to be observed exclusively by the local church members,commonly called Closed Communion.
  8. Membership is granted to those who have publicly professed faith in Christ repented toward God, and received scriptural baptism.
  9. Membership is a privilege and an honor, and discipline will be exercised toward those who fail to walk in a godly manner.
  10. Heaven and Hell are literal places; men will exist in one or the other forever
  11. Satan is a created spirit being who exists as a person and god of this world; his doom has been declared, and God will consign him to the lake of fire forever
