Doctrinal Statement


  • We believe the Bible to be the revealed Word of God, fully and verbally inspired of God. We believe the Scriptures to be the inerrant, infallible Word of God, as found within the 66 books from Genesis to Revelation. We believe God not only inspired every word, but has preserved them through the ages. We believe the King James Bible is the preserved Word of God for the English-speaking people and is the only acceptable English translation (Psalm 12:6-7; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:19-21).
  • We believe Jesus Christ was born of Mary, the virgin, and is the Son of God, and God the Son. Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:26-35
  • We believe that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, the just for the unjust that he might bring us to God. 2 Corinthians 5:21
  • We believe that Jesus rose from the grave the third day according to the scriptures. I Corinthians 15:1-6
  • We believe that Jesus, only, is the Great High Priest and we need not the intercession of any man, but that Christ ever liveth to make intercession for us. Hebrews 7:23-28
  • We believe that Christ will come again in person, bodily, visibly to establish His kingdom on earth. Acts 1:10-11
  • We believe that in order to be saved, the soul must be born again – “Ye must be born again.” John 3:7
  • We believe that every truly born-again person should declare his faith by the act of baptism (immersion in water) setting forth the Lord’s death, burial, and resurrection. Matthew 28:19
  • We believe that the church is a body of baptized believers whose only mission is not to “reform the world”, but to teach and preach the Gospel of salvation to the individual soul. Acts 2:37-47
  • We believe that according to the scriptures every believer who desires to be a part of Heritage Baptist Church should abstain from all acts of homosexuality, fornication, adultery, transvestitism and deviant gender identity. Romans 1:21-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-12, 1 Corinthians 6:13-20
  • We believe that the true church is bought with the precious blood of Christ and is completely autonomous, self governing, and should be free from all outside influences including the government. Acts 20:28, Matthew 16:18
  • We believe that all saints should live Godly, Holy lives which display the true image of Christ. 1 Peter 1:14-16, 1 Peter 2:9-10
  • We believe that all saints should be quiet, law abiding citizens of our great country. Romans 13:1-7, 1 Timothy 2:1-4, 1 Peter 2:12-19
