The Mission of Huntsburg Baptist Church
To present to the people of our community the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, that He may be exalted, that they may know God in His holiness, forgiveness and peace, and that they may also learn to worship and serve Him.
Of The Scriptures
We believe that the Holy Bible is the literal Word of God, consisting of 66 books, which make up the Old and New Testaments, and as originally written was verbally and plenarily inspired.
Of the True God
We believe in one God, eternally existing in one essence, and yet three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Of The Devil or Satan
We believe in the reality and distinct personality of Satan, the Devil: that he was created by God as an angel and through pride and rebellion became the enemy of his Creator.
We believe that God, without the use of pre-existing material, created the heavens and the earth including all life, each after its own kind, in six (literal 24-hour) days by direct act and not by the process of evolution.
We believe that the salvation of sinners is divinely initiated by grace through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who voluntarily took upon Himself our nature and honored the Divine Law by His personal obedience, thus qualifying Himself to be our Savior.
Of The Church
We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ needs to be understood in two senses, namely universal and local. In the universal sense, the church consists of all those during this age (from Pentecost to the Rapture) who have been born of God’s Spirit and have therefore been placed into the body of Christ. In the local sense, the church is a called-out, living assembly of baptized believers associating by a covenant of faith, organizing by New Testament principles, assembling regularly together, observing the ordinances.
Of the Ordinances
We believe that there are two church ordinances: Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
Of Civil Government
We believe that Civil Government is of Divine appointment for the interests and good order of human society; that those in authority are to be prayed for, conscientiously honored and obeyed, except in those things opposed to the expressed will of our Lord Jesus Christ,
