We work at being Biblical, Genuine, and Relevant

We must be Biblical

We challenge ourselves to think and act Biblically. We accept the Scriptures as God’s guide book to accomplish that task. When we falter, when we fail, we use the Scriptures as our lighthouse back to thinking and acting Biblically.

We must be Genuine

Our society has become compartmentalized. We work, spend time with our family and on our electronics. At BBC we are training a generation to invest in the lives of each other. The Bible teaches us to have genuine relationships with others. It is what sets us apart from the world.

We must be Relevant

Relevancy and conforming to the Bible are not two separate things. Our goal is to share the life changing message found in the Scriptures and to bring it to a world looking for hope and direction.

Why a Baptist church?

We were founded as a Baptist church because our beliefs aligned most closely with the traditional positions of the Baptist faith. The reliability of the Scriptures combined with a strong view of the sovereignty of God drive us to this position. We are an independent church that is guided by the Scriptures and led by our leadership team.

What We Stand For

God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1,26,27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14

Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; I Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:133

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.

II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18

Tongues

* The book of Acts and I Corinthians are the only books that address the spiritual gift of tongues in the New Testament

* Acts is a historical account referring to tongues; I Corinthians addresses the improper role of tongues while being the 5th oldest New Testament book

* The later Pastoral epistles do not even address the gift in their guidelines of appropriate church conduct

* At Pentecost, the apostles spoke “with other tongues” (glōssa, Acts 2:4) and their audience heard them in their “own language” (dialektos, Acts 2:8)

* Tongues were to be used as a sign to verify the Gospel to unbelieving Jews
(I Corinthians 14:21-22)

* Tongues are a controllable gift like any other that always requires an interpreter
(I Corinthians 14:27-28)

* Women are never allowed to speak in tongues in a church service
(II Corinthians 14:33-34)

* Though no time frame is given, the Bible says that the gift of tongues will cease
(I Corinthians 13:8)
