Southern Baptists have prepared a statement of generally held convictions called the Baptist Faith & Message. It serves as a guide to understanding who we are. Copies of the Baptist Faith and Message are available at Cornerstone upon request. The information provided below is provided to briefly summarize What We Believe! The Scriptures - The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is Gods revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of Divine Instruction. God is the author...2 Timothy 3:16 and 17 says...All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. God - There is only one true and living God...The eternal God reveals Himself to us as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each have personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence or being. The Trinity...1 John 5:5-8...Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is He who came by water and blood - Jesus Christ, not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, The Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one. God the Father - God as Father reigns with Divine Providence over all His creation according to the purposes of His grace...God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through Faith in Christ Jesus. God is creator...Genesis 1:1...In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. He is the True God...Jeremiah 10:10...But the Lord is the true God, He is the Living God, the Eternal King. When He is angry, the earth trembles, the nations cannot endure His wrath.
