At Abbe Road Baptist Church, we are determined to make disciples.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Matthew 28:19-20
What We Believe
1) Of the Scriptures:
The Holy Bible, comprised of 66 books, is the Word of God, without error and is our ultimate source of truth and revelation.
2) Of the True God:
The God of the Bible is the one and only God, yet three Persons:
The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
3) Of the Devil, or Satan:
The Devil is a fallen angel who has chosen to fight God, until His final death in the lake of fire.
4) Of the Creation:
God created the universe in six, literal days, about 6000 years ago.
5) Of the Fall of Man:
Adam, the first man, representing all of mankind, plunged us all into a state of rebellion and alientation from God.
6) Of the Forgiveness for Sin:
Jesus alone has made it possible to have all our sins forgiven by His
substitutionary death on the cross, where He shed His blood for us.
7) Of Salvation by Grace:
Salvation is by God's grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, and not human works, rituals or ceremonies.
8) Of the Church:
The church is made up of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ who is God's provision for salvation, and who have been born again by the Holy Spirit.
9) Of the Ordinances:
The Lord Jesus gave the church two official commands: baptism, which means 'immersion" and communion worship as a memorial of the cross.
10) Of the Righteous and the Wicked
The righteous in Jesus Christ will go to heaven but those who remain unrighteous in their sin will go to eternal judgment.
11) Of the Return of Christ:
He is coming back to earth to reign and rule with a rod.
12) Of the Resurrection:
That believers who have died will be raised to new, glorified bodies, and that unbelievers will be raised to face God and eternal condemnation.
