What We Believe

The mission statement of Philadelphia Baptist Church is "Loving God, Loving Others, Showing Others God's Love." Philadelphia Baptist Church subscribes to the doctrinal beliefs as contained in The Baptist Faith and Message 2000.

WE BELIEVE

that the Bible is the Word of God. It is the authoritative, inerrant and infallible revelation from God to man.

WE BELIEVE

in the Trinity. The Trinity consists of three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – in one God.

WE BELIEVE

that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and that God’s remedy for men’s ruin is entirely of grace through one’s personal acceptance of the finished work of Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE

that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and died physically, resurrected to prove the completeness of His work, providing salvation for all men. Later He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers.

WE BELIEVE

that a true believer is secure in Christ forever and is called to live a holy life. He cannot loose his salvation, but sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of his heavenly Father.

WE BELIEVE

in the church, the body of Christ, whose mission is to preach the gospel to all the world.

WE BELIEVE

that the ordinances of the church are believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s supper.

WE BELIEVE

in the personal, premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ, prior to the establishment of His kingdom. Those who are believers shall be forever in the presence of God and those who have rejected Christ will be separated from God forever.

WE BELIEVE

that the Holy Spirit is a person, is God and possesses all the divine attributes. He indwells all believers, baptizes, and seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, and fills them in response to confession of sin and yieldedness.
