We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men supernaturally inspired; that it has truth without any admixture of error for its matter; and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man; the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.
1. By “The Holy Bible” we mean that collection of sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelation, which, as originally written does not only contain and convey the Word of God, but IS the very Word of God.
2. By “inspiration” we mean that the books of the Bible were written by holy men of old, as they were moved by the Holy Spirit, in such a definite way that their writings were supernaturally and verbally inspired and free from error, as no other writings have ever been or ever will be inspired.
3. The Masoretic Text of the Old Testament and the Received Text (Textus Receptus) of the New Testament, are the texts of the original languages we accept and use. The King James Version of the Bible shall be and is the official English translation used by Trinity Baptist Church.
Psalm 19:7-11; 119:89,105,130,160; Proverbs 30:5-6; Isaiah 8:20; Luke 16:31; 24:25-27,44-45; John 5:39,45-47; 12:48; 17:17; Acts 1:16; 28:25; Romans 3:4; 15:4; Ephesians 6:17; 2Timothy 3:16-17; 1Peter 1:23; 2Peter 1:19-21; Revelation 22:19
The Bible tells us the Godhead is made up of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each has His Divine work and the greatest of these is the redemption of mankind.
Man, after being created perfect, in the image of God, fell into sin. The only way back to God and His favor is through the atoning work of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, who died for the sins of man. All who repent of sin, and by faith, receive Christ as Savior, are spiritually born again and become the children of God forever.
We serve the Lord as holy priests and ambassadors for Christ, because we love Him and have faith in Him. We are debtors to God, which calls for the contribution of our time, talents and treasures. These gifts are to be given through the local church for the advancement and support of the kingdom of God.
The church shall come together in religious liberty for worship on the first day of the week, which commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord.
The mission of the church is to produce more and stronger Christians around the world, in keeping with the Great Commission of our Lord.
The local church is made up of baptized believers, with Jesus as the head and the Holy Spirit as its guide.
The church’s two ordinances are Scriptural Baptism (Immersion) and the Lord’s Supper.
We believe in the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ, where believers will be taken from this Earth and judged according to their works.
As believers, we will enjoy our home forever with Christ in Heaven with all who have been justified through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Rapture will begin a seven year period called the Tribulation. After this time of tribulation, Jesus will come again to Earth to establish His Millennial Reign. After the Great White Throne Judgment, those who chose to reject the salvation provided by the death of Jesus on the cross, shall be cast into the Lake of Fire forever.
The Masoretic Text of the Old Testament and the Received Text (Textus Receptus) of the New Testament, are the texts of the original languages we accept and use. We believe the King James Version, being the translation of these two texts, is the preserved Holy Word of God in the English language.
