AT BESSIE ROAD INDEPENDENT BAPTIST CHURCH WE BELIEVE:
In the infallible verbal inspiration of the whole Bible (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).
In the Genesis account of creation (Genesis 1:2).
In the virgin birth and sinless humanity of Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:18-20, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1Peter 2:22).
In the Deity of Jesus Christ (John 10:30, John 1:1 & 14, 2 Corinthians 5:19).
The Holy Spirit is the divine administrator for Jesus Christ in His churches (Luke 24:29, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:4, 5 & 8, Acts 2:1-4).
That the miraculous spiritual manifestation gifts were done away with when the Bible was completed. Faith, hope, and love are the vital abiding spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians chapters 12-14).
In the bodily resurrection and ascension of Christ and the bodily resurrection of His saints (Matthew 28:1-7, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Corinthians 15:42-58,1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
In the pre-millennial, personal, bodily return of Christ as the crowning event of the Gentile age (John 14:1-6, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 2 Thessalonians 2:8, Revelation 19; 20:4-6; 20:11-15; 21:8).
That the depraved sinner is saved wholly by grace through Jesus Christ (Luke 13:3-5, John 3:16-18, Acts 20:21, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9).
That ALL who trust Jesus Christ for their salvation are eternally secure in Him and shall not perish (John 3:36; 5:24; 10:27-30, Romans 8:35 -39, Hebrews 10:39, 1 Peter 1:5).
