DIMOND BAPTIST CHURCH

Making and Mobilizing Followers of Christ

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

  • We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings, and of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
  • We believe in one God, eternal and existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is truly God and truly man.
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus died for our sins according to the scriptures, as a representative and substutionary sacrifice, and all who place their faith and trust in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
  • We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there for us as our High Priest and advocate.
  • We believe in "that blessed hope", the personal pretribulation and premillenial return of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become Children of God.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting, conscious punishment of the lost.
