We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally and plenarily inspired and inerrant Word of God. We hold the Bible, given through human agents of revelation, to be infallible and see this as a crucial article of faith with implications for the entire life and practice of all Christian people. With the great fathers of Christian history, we declare our confidence in the total trustworthiness of the Scriptures, urging that any view which imputes to them a lesser degree of inerrancy than total is in conflict with the Bible’s self-testimony in general and with the teaching of Jesus Christ in particular. Out of obedience to the Lord of the Church, we submit ourselves unreservedly to His authoritative view of Holy Writ.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. The Old and New Testament Scriptures were written by human authors divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, unbroken and passed down to us today and that God has preserved it for the English-speaking world in the King James Bible.
The King James Bible will be the only translation used by Spring Creek Baptist Church and it is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe in the Trinitarian nature of God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three distinct persons, yet one being, essence, and power.
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is very God, the express image of the Father, and the One by whom and for whom all things were created.
We believe in the virgin birth of Christ. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and became the incarnate Son of God, Immanuel, God with us.
We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the reality and personality of angels, including Satan, the great enemy of God and man.
We believe in the fall of man and his consequent depravity. Sin is universal in man and exceedingly heinous to God. All men are guilty and in a lost condition apart from Christ.
We believe in salvation by the shed blood of Christ received by grace through faith alone. He shed His blood to accomplish propitiation to God, redemption from sin, and reconciliation of man. “Christ died for us” and “bore our sins in His own body on the tree.”
We believe in the sonship of true believers in the family of God. Their sanctification, edification, and security are provided by faith in the finished work of Christ.
We believe in the physical resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and His glorified bodily presence at the right hand of God as our Only High Priest and our Advocate.
We believe in the imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to receive His church unto Himself.
We believe in the subsequent, visible and premillennial return of Christ, with His church, to establish His promised worldwide kingdom on the earth.
We believe in the physical resurrection of all men: the saints to everlasting joy and bliss, the wicked to conscious and eternal torment. We believe in the Great Commission as the primary mission of the church. The gospel of the grace of God is to be preached to the entire world. Converts are to be taught to obey the Lord and testify concerning their faith in Christ as Savior through water baptism by immersion and to honor Christ by holy living and observance of the Lord’s Supper.
