What We Believe

Red Bud Baptist Church affirms the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 as a sufficient expression of our doctrinal beliefs (Click here to view the complete BF&M 2000). The core beliefs can be summarized by the following paragraph.

We believe the Bible is the inspired revelation of God that contains no mixture of error and is the final source of authority in the life of the Church.

We believe in the Triune God - the Father, Son, and Spirit. We believe each as eternally existed together as one God, infinite in wisdom, power, knowledge, righteousness, and love.

We believe that all mankind has sinned and rebelled against God and are deserving of eternal condemnation and exist in a separated relationship with God outside of Jesus Christ.

We believe God the Father sent God the Son, Jesus Christ, to be born of a virgin, live a sinless life, and die on the cross as an atoning sacrifice for the sins of God's people. The Spirit testifies to the truth of the saving work of Jesus Christ in the hearts of men and women.

We believe it is only through trusting in Jesus Christ alone and repenting of sins that one may be reconciled to God. Trusting in Jesus Christ as Lord and repenting of sin is a work of God's grace, enabled by the Spirit, and not a work of mankind.

We believe that followers of Jesus will persevere until their death or the visible return of Jesus Christ.
