Bounds Cross Baptist

A summary of our beliefs

We believe the whole of the Bible is true and receive it as the complete authority for all that we teach. Through the Bible, God still speaks by His Holy Spirit to sinful men in a sinful world.

We believe that there is only one true and living God. In this divine and infinite Being there are three Persons - the Father, the Son (Who is the Lord Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. All are completely God, yet the Godhead is not divided.

We preach Jesus Christ who was born into this world, lived a Holy sin-free life, was crucified that sinners might be saved, was buried and rose again from the dead, and is now ascended into Heaven as an Advocate with the Father.

We teach that all who are blessed by God with repentance for their sins and faith in Jesus Christ have eternal life.

We believe that only God can forgive sins and that if men's sins are not forgiven before they die, they must suffer eternal punishment.

We believe that Jesus Christ will return to this earth again with power and great glory as the Judge of all men, and as Christians, we look forward to that day with great joy.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
