Articles of Faith

Articles of Faith
(Short Form)

At Ravenswood Baptist Church we believe the historic fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith.
We believe in:

  1. The absolute inspiration, authority, infallibility, and inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures.
  2. The Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—three independent persons and yet one person, the one true God.
  3. The incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  4. Salvation by faith, based upon Christ’s atoning work on the cross of Calvary.
  5. The second coming of Jesus Christ. 

At Ravenswood Baptist Church we believe the Bible doctrines normally referred to as the Baptist Distinctives.

  1. The Bible is the sole authority for faith and practice.
  2. Each local congregation should be independent and self governing.
  3. Local church membership should be composed of born-again, baptized believers;  who assemble together for worship, Bible study, fellowship, and to carry out the Great Commission.
  4. Separation of church and state.
  5. There are two ordinances for the local church: baptism by immersion of believers only, and the Lord’s Supper.
  6. Each believer is a priest before the Lord.
  7. Each believer is responsible before the Lord for their own personal understanding of the Scripture and for obedience to the Bible.

The ultimate ethical responsibility of each Christian is to live a life characterized by love.
We use only the King James Version of the Bible in our English services and programs.
