WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE is the Word of God. We believe the King James Version is the Divine, Inspired and preserved Word of God in the English language. We believe
that Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross as payment for our sins, and rose from the dead on the third day. We believe that the only way a
person may go to Heaven when he dies is to first place his faith in the payment that Jesus Christ provided with His shed blood on the cross. Once a person is saved by
putting his faith in Jesus, we are commanded to be baptized by immersion to show to others what took place when we trusted Christ; we do this in obedience not to save
us but to show that we have been saved. We believe in participating in the Lord's Supper on a regular basis to remember the payment Jesus made for us and express our
love to Him for that payment. The Lord's Supper is not kept to take us to Heaven, but to thank Jesus for His sacrifice.
WE BELIEVE THAT THE BIBLE is what it claims to be: The Word of God. We take instruction from the Bible literally; We take instruction from the Bible in the areas of life
and faith, and go to it for the answers to life. We believe that we should first seek God's opinion on any subject before forming our own.
WE BELIEVE THAT THE FAMILY unit should be strong and healthy. The first institution God made on earth was the family. Programs in the church are geared to help build
strong families. Rutherford County Baptist Church provides fellowship, friendship, and support services through our social activities.
WE BELIEVE THE CHURCH should be the moral conscience of a community. Since God created civil governments, we work hard to cooperate with and work together with
our elected officials and civil servants.
WE BELIEVE GOD'S business is the greatest business in the world.
WE BELIEVE THAT THE ONLY REQUIREMENTS for church membership are salvation and baptism by immersion. People who are saved and baptized at Rutherford
County Baptist Church are voted in as members unless they request not to be. A person may join from another Baptist church by transfer. Persons wishing to join from a
church other than a Baptist church must give testimony of their salvation and their immersed baptism, and thereby join by Christian experience
WE BELIEVE THAT IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY as outlined in the Bible to spread the Gospel to our area, nation, and world. Mark 16:15, "And he said unto them, Go ye
into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Matthew 28:19-20, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the
Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
WE BELIEVE THAT CHRISTIANS should talk, behave, live, and dress like a citizen of Heaven. The basis for these standards is found in the Bible.
WE BELIEVE A CHURCH should not be filled with spectators but participants. We believe a church should be described as a spiritual hospital where people come for
spiritual healing. We have a first-class way of doing things. We are careful stewards of God's money and we give an accurate accounting once a month.
