Bethany Baptist Church

Statement of Faith

We believe in...

  1. The Divine Inspiration, infallibility and inerrancy of Scripture as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct in the personal life of the Christian and the corporate life of the church.
  2. The unity and coequality of the Godhead in the Persons of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  3. The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  4. The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature as a result of the Fall rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
  5. That Jesus, the Son of God, truly became man begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin.
  6. That the substitutionary death of Jesus on the cross is the sole and all sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin and from its eternal consequences.
  7. That Jesus was raised bodily from the dead and now, being seated at the right hand of the Father, forever intercedes on behalf of His people.
  8. The justification of the sinner solely by grace through faith in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
  9. The ministry of the Holy Spirit in making the death of Christ effective to the individual sinner, granting him repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ; followed by His indwelling work in the life of the believer.
  10. The one, holy, universal church, the Body, of which Christ is the head, to which all true believers belong; the local church being an expression of that universal church.
  11. That believers in the Lord Jesus Christ should be baptised by total immersion upon profession of faith and that they should break bread together and drink of the cup in communion with the Lord and in remembrance of Him.
  12. The expectation of the personal and visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory, the resurrection of the body and the judgement of the world.
Adopted by the Church in 1985.
