Spring Hills Baptist Church
Statement of Beliefs:
We invite all families to join us as we endeavor to live out our faith as we educate our children at home. Our leadership team members personally hold to the church’s statements given below and are guided by them in making decisions for the group.
What We Believe:
We believe that God exists eternally as the one true and living God and that He manifests Himself in three persons…God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 28:19; I Peter 2:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Psalm 90:2; Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22)
Jesus Christ (Son of God):
We believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, was crucified, buried, and rose bodily from the grave and will come again to this world to reign in righteousness.
(Luke 1:30-35; John 14:6; I Thessalonians 4:16-17)
We believe that a person is baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ at the time of conversion; this baptism and subsequent fillings result in a believer being filled and supernaturally empowered for service through spiritual gifts.
(I Corinthians 12:13; Romans 8:9-17; John 16:7-13; Ephesians 5:18; Galatians 5:25; John 14:16-17)
We believe that the Bible is our supreme authority, and it is sufficient as our only rule of faith and practice. The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and it is truth without any mixture of error.
(I Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; Revelation 22:19; Proverbs 30:5; Psalm 119:105, 160; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We believe humanity is the capstone of God's creation, made in the image of God for the purpose of knowing God and enjoying Him forever. Through Adam's sin all people became separated from God, incapable of fulfilling their purpose and powerless to change their condition or restore themselves to God.
(Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 3:1-23; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 64:6-7; Romans 3:9-20; Romans 5:12; Romans 6:23)
We believe that forgiveness of sin, salvation, and new life is made possible by the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. This salvation is by grace, through faith, and by the appropriation of the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
(Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:2)
We believe there shall be a resurrection of the saved to eternal life in heaven and a resurrection of the unsaved to eternal punishment in hell. Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.
(John 3:16; John 5:11-13; John 10:29; Romans 6:23)
