Lakeside Baptist Church Core Beliefs


Bible

We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God.

  • That the 66 books of the Old and New Testament were inspired by the Spirit of God and are both infallible and inerrant
  • That the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct · 2 Timothy 3:16

God

We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

Jesus Christ

We believe in the absolute and essential deity of our Lord Jesus Christ

  • In His eternal existence, with the Father in pre-incarnate glory
  • In His work of creation, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection
  • In His triumphant ascension, mediating ministry, and personal return
  • We believe that He will return in the air for His saints at the end of the church age, and with His saints to set up His 1,000 year millennial kingdom on earth at the end of the tribulation period

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the absolute and essential deity, and the personality of the Holy Spirit

  • Who convinces of sin, of righteousness, and judgment
  • Who regenerates, indwells, seals, sanctifies, illuminates, and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ

Mankind

We believe that Adam was divinely created in the image of God

  • That by the sin of disobedience he fell from that state
  • That all his posterity inherited spiritual depravity and defilement
  • That all men therefore are guilty before God and condemned to physical and spiritual death

Salvation

We believe that salvation is by the sovereign grace of God

  • That according to the the Father's will, Christ voluntarily suffered a propitiatory (satisfactory and appeasing) death as our substitute
  • That justification (being forgiven and declared not guilty) is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • That those who respond to the Gospel in repentance and faith shall be divinely preserved and ultimately perfected in the image of the Lord
