What We Believe
Woodmont Baptist Church Beliefs
We believe . . .
The Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired, so that it is inerrant and preserved by God in its complete form. It is our authoritative standard.
We believe in the Trinity . . . that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are one God. God is the creator of the universe and it was created through divine means, not through an evolutionary process. God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for the human race, sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to save sinners. Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man. He was born of a virgin and He lived a sinless life. He died on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead on the third day. He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is head of the church and intercedes for believers. We believe in the personal, bodily, visible return of Christ.
Salvation includes forgiveness of sin, eternal life, and a full and abundant life. Salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned. It comes through faith and is secure forever.
We believe that the goal of every Christian should be to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and through the indwelling Spirit.
