Our Smyrna Missionary Baptist Church Statement of Faith

  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It has absolute authority in that God is its author, making it both inerrant and infallible.

  • There is only one true and living God, who exists in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - Each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of God.

  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born to a virgin mother, begotten by the Holy Spirit. He suffered, was crucified, buried, and rose again that we might have salvation. He now sits at the right hand of the Father.

  • The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He is the agent of regeneration, the initiator of repentance and the source of comfort for the believer. He imparts new life in the believer continually indwelling them until the day of redemption.

  • The priesthood of all believers, understanding that there is no need for a mediator between God and man; every Christian has access to God in prayer through Jesus Christ.

  • The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He is the agent of regeneration, the initiator of repentance and the source of comfort for the believer. He imparts new life in the believer continually indwelling them until the day of redemption.

  • Jesus will return to establish his Kingdom.

  • Humanity is made in God's image. However, sin caused separation from God, making possible both physical and spiritual death. Therefore, all of humanity is in need of salvation.

  • The church is a local body of believers with Jesus Christ as the head and the Holy Spirit as the guide. The church is the assembling of God's people together for worship, instruction, and fellowship.

  • In baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper.
