Creedmoor Road Baptist Church is a Bible-believing fellowship. But what exactly do we believe about the Bible? What do we teach at CRBC? To answer these questions, we offer our Statement of Faith. This statement of faith is intended to help Creedmoor Road Baptist Church remain a united, effective body of Christ. It is only a guide in interpretation. It holds no authority over the believer, and is not used to determine whether or not others are acceptable for church membership.
The Holy Spirit is the Comforter sent in the name of the Son by the Father to those who know the Truth. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, and reminds us of what is right and of all Jesus’ teachings. John 14:16-17, John 16:8, John 14:26
Creation was the work of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God created the heaven, the earth, the plants and the creatures. God took dust of the ground and made man in His image and likeness. He created all people, men and women in His own image. Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:26-28, John 1:1-3
Believers are the light of the world. We must let our light shine before men that they may see our good deeds and glorify God. Believers are baptized into death, and like Christ, made alive again and walk in newness of life. Believers are becoming complete in the love of God, renewed in the spirit of our minds, leaving behind our sinful nature, and not grieving, but rather pleasing the Holy Spirit. In love and obedience to Christ, believers seek to teach all nations and all people, baptizing them and teaching them to always obey God and to trust that Jesus is with us always. Matthew 5:14-16, Romans 6:4, Matthew 5:48, 2Timothy 3:17, Ephesians 4:22-23, Matthew 28:19-20
Prayer is the method by which we communicate with God. Through prayer, our desires and praises are made known to God and those desires are granted when we pray in God's will and believe. Prayers, including praise, thanksgiving, intercession, forgiveness, and supplication are to be made in faith, free of anger and doubt. Mark 11:24, 1Timothy 2:1, 1Timothy 2:8
Marriage and Family is holy, sacred, and instituted by God. The purpose of marriage is to provide companionship, nurture children and is a life long committed union of a man and a woman. Husbands and wives are to submit themselves to each other only, as to the Lord and are to love each other as Christ loved the church. Parents are to nurture and teach their children the ways of the Lord. Parents are not to provoke their children to anger. Children are to obey their parents in the Lord. As parents and children form a family, likewise the church is a family and we are to love and care for each other, as Christ loves the church. Genesis 1:28, Genesis 2:18,22, Matthew 5:32, Ephesians 5:22-25, Ephesians 6:1-4, Mark 3:33-35
Satan, the devil, is the tempter and deceiver of the nations and all people seeking to destroy as many lives as he can. Satan and his evil angels were cast out of heaven and will be thrown into the lake of fire in the Day of Judgment with all his children, the ungodly. Christians should therefore resist Satan and all his temptations. Matthew 4:3, Revelation 12:9, Revelation 20:3, Jude 1:6, 1Peter 5:8, James 4:7
