What We Believe at Little Creek Baptist Church

Doctrine of the Scriptures
We believe in the verbal (every word) and plenary (complete) inspiration of the Scriptures in the original manuscripts, that the Old and New Testament are equally inspired and without error or contradiction; that we have the complete and only written revelation by God to man in the sixty-six books of the Old King James Bible; and that anyone who adds to or takes way from this completed revelation is cursed by God.

Doctrine of God
We believe in the one true and living God, eternally existing as one in essence yet three in person. We believe that God the Father is Father in His relationship within the Trinity and in His relationship with those who receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour, that He orders all things after the counsel of His own will and in so doing concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of man that He hears and answers prayers; that He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent; and that He is the object of our worship and praise.

Doctrine of Jesus Christ
We believe that the Lord Jesus is coequal and coeternal with the Father. He was conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the virgin Mary; that He is God manifest in the flesh; that He was sent by the Father for the purpose of being the perfect sinless sacrifice for the sins of mankind; that He died in our stead, was buried and rose bodily the third day according to the Scriptures having victory over death for us; that He is the object of our faith; that He is the only way to the Father; that He is imminently coming for the believer.

Doctrine of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person; that he was sent by the Lord Jesus Christ from God the Father to reprove the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; that we are born again by the Spirit of God and that after this, He becomes our teacher and our guide indwelling us and empowering us to live a victorious Christian life; and that He seals the believer unto the day of redemption.

Doctrine of Creation
We believe the Genesis account of creation as being neither allegory or myth, but a literal, historical account of the direct immediate creative acts of God without any evolutionary process; that man (Spirit, soul, and body) was created by a direct work of God.

Doctrine of Man
We believe that man was created by God in His image, sinless and innocent, but that by disobedience to his Creator he incurred both physical and spiritual death; that all men through choice and an inherited evil nature and totally depraved, and if not saved will endure eternal punishment in the lake of fire.

Doctrine of Sin
We believe that sin is the transgression of the Law of God; we believe in the universality of sin, that is, everyone has sinned; that it separates man from God; that there is no remission of sin apart from the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

Doctrine of Salvation
We believe that the salvation of sinners is by grace through faith and is a free gift of God in the person of Jesus Christ; that salvation is received individually by repentance from sin and personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; that He honored the divine law by his personal obedience and by the willful shedding of his blood in death made a vicarious atonement for our sins.

Doctrine of Heaven
We believe in literal Heaven, a place for all people who have put their trust in Jesus Christ!

Doctrine of the Church
We believe that the church exists in two aspects:
1) An organism…….We believe that the church as an organism is the body of Christ composed of all the redeemed. We believe that Christ gave Himself for the church; that He is its only true Head.
2) An organization…..We believe that the establishment and continuation of local churches are clearly taught and defined in the New Testament. We believe that the church as an organization is an assembly of baptized believers, voluntarily associated by covenant in the faith for fellowship, worship and service; that its mission is the spread of the Gospel to all men and to earnestly contend for the faith. We believe that its officers are pastor and deacons who qualifications, claims and duties are clearly defined in the Scripture. We hold that the local church has the absolute right of self-government, free from the interference of any hierarchy of individuals r organization. God is the Good Shepherd.

Doctrine of Church Ordinances

We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; that it sets forth in picture the essential facts in redemption, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that it gives testimony to what has taken place in the heart of the believer. The believer is now dead to sin and resurrected to walk in newness of life. Baptism after salvation is an act of obedience and is a prerequisite for church membership. It should be made clear that there is no saving power in water baptism.

Lord’s Supper
We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the Lord’s death to be observed until He comes; that the elements, the bread, and fruit of the vine (grape juice to be used), are only symbolic of His broken bod and sed blood and that our observance of it is pictorial testimony of the believers’ fellowship with the crucified Saviour and should be preceded by solemn heart search and self-examination and confession of any unconfessed sin within the believer.

Doctrine of Satan
We believe that the Scriptures teach that Satan once held a high place in Heaven, but was lifted up with pride and sinned, and thus was cast out. He is now the prince of the air and the god of this world system; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; that his final doom along with his hosts shall be eternal punishment in the lake of fire.

Doctrine of Hell
We believe that Hell is a literal place of eternal punishment. Originally, it was prepared for the devil and his demons; however, since man has also rebelled against God, all unbelievers will spend eternity in hell. Hell is described as everlasting punishment, torment, the lake of fire and the second death. Hell is also a place of eternal separation from God.

Doctrine of Separation
We believe that we are mandated by God in the Scriptures to separate ourselves unto Christ and from any participation in or endorsement of sin; from ecclesiastical organization and religious personalities that deny the faith r compromise its message; from brethren that walk disorderly or who unrepentantly continue in sin or engage in the compromise aforementioned. Believers are not to enter into marriage with unbelievers which create an unequal yoke. We therefore urge every member to abstain from every questionable thing, keeping himself from even the appearance of evil in religion, dress, conversation, amusement, business, habit, music, etc., according to the teachings of God’s Word.


Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
