We Believe...
BBC doctrinal & positional statement

Our statement is virtually identical to thousands of Independent, Bible-believing Baptist churches around the world.  We would make an additional statement to the  Belief regarding the Bible.  We are not impressed with the typical statements made regarding "inspiration of the original manuscripts."  This is usually just a smokescreen to say that the King James Bible is only a good translation.  We believe that the A.V. 1611 (KJB) is the pure, preserved word of God, without error as promised in Psalm 12:6,7.

We are truly Baptist, meaning we are a shepherd-led church, rather than a board-run church.  The politics derived from convention-like churches becomes a sure road to apostasy.   

We are dispensational in our understanding of the Scriptures.  Rightly dividing the word of truth is the only method of reconciling the supposed contradictions in the Bible. The greatest body of truth for the "church age" saint is in the Epistles of Paul. 

We do not ascribe to the modern purpose-driven church mentality that has become so fashionable today for the purpose of building mega-churches. Our music and message is to build up the saints for reaching the lost, not to draw in the world with worldly methods.  We therefore view the Rick Warren philosophy of ministry to be a cancer in the body of Christ.

We are not ecumenical in any form.  We believe that the greatest enemy of Bible-believing Christianity has been Rome in any form.

While we are a very gifted church, we do not hold to the modern charismatic movement and believe that their boastful claims of sweeping revival, holy-laughter, holy barking, raising the dead is a great hinderence to the true work of spreading the gospel.

We believe that life begins at the moment of conception and that abortion is the murder of a child, and not simply the removal of fetal tissue.

We are NOT "Baptist-briders" and therefore find  repugnant the idea that Jesus through John the Baptist propigated a baptist-succession, and all other born-again believers are somehow excluded from the bride of Christ.  Conversely, it is evident that the greater portion of King James Bible-believing churches in the world are made up of Independent Baptists. Our heritage is connected to a long line of Bible believers who could be identified by several names and referred to by Rome as "anabaptists."

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity should be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. Any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, beastiality, incest, fornication, adultery, pedophilia, and pornography is a sinful perversion of  God's gift of sex.  

We are pro-Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

This, in no way, is an exhaustive list of our beliefs.
