Statement of Faith
The following represents a summary of the beliefs and doctrinal position held by Southland Bible Church.
The Bible is God’s Inspired Word. Totally trustworthy. 2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:19-20.
God is the eternal Spirit Being, creator of all things. The Only God. Isaiah 43:10, 11; 44:6, 8.
Jesus Christ is God’s Only Begotten Son. He is God. He is the only Person of the Godhead man has ever seen. John 1:1, 2, 18; Hebrews 1:8, 9; Titus 3:5, 6; Romans 10:9, 10.
Salvation (Eternal Life in God’s Presence) is the result of Faith Alone. Good works, baptism, etc… have no part is securing this. Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5, 6, Romans 10:9, 10. That a literal, eternal hell is the destiny of those who refuse God’s gift of eternal life. Romans 6:23, Revelation 21:8.
That the Blood of Christ paid completely for man the price of God’s just punishment upon sin. All that remains for man, is to accept that sacrifice of Christ, as a gift from God, in man’s behalf. 2 Corinthians 5:21, Ephesians 1:7, Colossians 1:14; 1 Peter 1:18, 19, 2:24.
After a person has become a True Christian, they will live a life pleasing to God, it will be the natural result of becoming a new person in Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17, Ephesians 2:10.
