Southern Baptists have put together statements of beliefs called The Baptist Faith and Message. There are three versions of this statement. The most recent of which is dated the year 2000. This version makes subtle changes and clarifications from the version dated May 9, 1963. In our church constitution we hold to the 1963 Baptist Faith and Message. The full text of the statement can be found HERE. Basic tenants of our faith are as follows:
The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man.
There is one and only one living and true God.
Man was created by the special act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning work of His creation.
Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.
