Cedar Grove Baptist Church
What We Believe 

Cedar Grove Baptist Church holds to the Baptist Faith and Message (2000)

I. The Word of God


We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.


II Timothy 3:16II Peter 1:20-21Mark 13:31John 8:31-32John 20:31Acts 20:32


II. The Trinity

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

Genesis 1:1,26John 1:1,3Matthew 28:19John 3:161:13II Corinthians 5:17Romans 8:1


VII. The Church

We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.

Ephesians 2:19-22; <a data-cke-saved-href="http://www.gnpcb.org/esv/search/?q=Acts+1:8" href="http://www.gnpcb.org/esv/search/?q=Acts+1:8" style="color: rgb(72, 148, 166); overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden; font-size: 1em; margin-bottom: 0px; " target="_blank" title="But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." "="">Acts 1:8; Ephesians 5:19-21Acts 2:42Hebrews 10:23-25


VIII. Christian Conduct

We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of his fellow men; that his conduct should be blameless before the world; that he should be a faithful steward of his possessions; and that he should seek to realize for himself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.

I Corinthians 10:31Romans 12:1-3Hebrews 12:1-2I Corinthians 11:23-26


X. Church Cooperation

We believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another in a denominational organization. Such an organization, whether a regional or district conference, exists and functions by the will of the churches. Cooperation in a conference is voluntary and may be terminated at any time.

Acts 15:36,4116:5I Corinthians 16:1Galatians 1:1-3Revelations 1:4,10,11

This church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, and may likewise cooperate with interdenominational fellowships on a voluntary independent basis.


XI. The Last Things

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgement, the eternal felicity of the righteous and the endless suffering of the wicked.

Matthew 16:27Mark 14:62John 14:3Acts 1:11Phil. 3:20I Thessalonians 4:15II Timothy 4:1Titus 2:13I Corinthians 4:5I Corinthians 15II Thessalonians 1:7-10Revelation 20:4-6,11-15
