River Bend Baptist Church Core Beliefs
A great commitment to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission will build a great church.
We believe the Bible is the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and completely trustworthy as our guide in faith and conduct.
We believe the one true God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator of life itself. All things belong to Him.
We believe in the absolute and essential deity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit lives within each person who has received Jesus as Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit empowers believers for Christian living and service.
Mankind & Salvation
We believe all people are spiritually lost because of willful disobedience toward God, and any person who repents of sin and accepts Christ as Savior and Lord receives forgiveness and new life. This is the only way to deal with personal sin and to restore fellowship with God.
We believe that God has a plan for the Christian life
- That all followers of Jesus are gifted with special abilities for ministry and are called to be active in ministries that build up the church.
- That followers of Jesus are responsible for sharing His good news with a concern that extends from the communities where they live to the ends of the earth.
