What we believe at Open Bible Baptist Church about the Bible, God, and more

Our Beliefs

Inspiration of scripture

The Bible is the verbally and inerrant inspired Word of God in its original Scripture and the sole authority in all matters of faith and practice. (I Cor. 2:9-13; II Peter 1:19-21; II Tim. 3: 16,17)

TRIUNE GOD

There is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (John 4:24; James 1:17; Psalms 139:1-16; Psalms 2:2,7; Isa. 63:10; John 16:7,15,26)

DEITY OF CHRIST

In the Deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His shed blood for atonement, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, and His personal return to establish His kingdom on earth. (John 1:1,2; Rom. 9:5; II Peter 1:1; Luke 1:31-35; Isa. 7:14; Phil. 2:6-8; II Cor. 5:14,15; I Cor. 15:1-4; Rev. 3:10; Matt. 24:29-31)

TOTAL DEPRAVITY OF MAN

All men are by nature sinful and lost and that for eternal salvation, Holy Spirit regeneration is absolutely essential. (Eph. 2:8,9; Rom. 6:10; I John 2:3; Rom. 3:24; John 3:5; Titus 3:5; Rom. 5:1)

PERSONHOOD OF SATAN

Satan is a person and that the Lake of Fire is a place of eternal conscious punishment for all unsaved. (Isa. 14:12-14; Ezek. 28:14; Rev. 20:7; Rev. 20:11-15)

PERSON AND WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit’s relationship to man is to convict of sin and bring one to Christ, (John 6:44; John 12:32; John 15:26; John 16:7-14) to indwell, (Rom. 8:9), seal, (Eph. 1:13,14; I Cor. 12:12,13) and to fill. (Eph. 5:18)

SALVATION BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH ALONE

Men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. (II Cor. 5:18-21; I John 2:2; Titus 3:5; Rom. 5:1; Eph. 2:8,9)

THE BODY OF CHRIST ON EARTH

The body of Christ on earth consists of all born – again believers. A New Testament Church is a local organized body of baptized believers practicing scriptural ordinances and actively engaged in fulfilling the Great Commission. (Eph. 5:23,24; I Cor. 5:4; Acts 15; Matt. 28:19,20; Eph. 4:11-16; Heb. 10:25)

BELIEVERS BAPTISM

Baptism is a scriptural ordinance of the church requiring immersion of believers only and to be administered by a local church. (Matt. 28:19,20; Acts 2:38; Acts 10:47; Acts 16:33)

LORD’S SUPPER

The Lord’s Supper is a scriptural ordinance of the church to be partaken of by born – again baptized believers of like faith. (I Cor. 11:23,24)

LITERAL RESURRECTION OF ALL MEN

The physical resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of life, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (II Cor. 5:8; I Cor. 15:51-57; I Thess. 4:14-17; Rev. 20:3-10)

THE LORD’S CALLING THE CHURCH TO GLORY

The pre-millennial, pre-tribulation rapture of the saints. (Titus 2:13; I Thess. 4:14-17; Rev. 3:10)
