Christian Baptists Articles is an online article directory for both publishers and full time Christian workers. Formed in May of 2010, We are striving to become a leader in the world of Christian online publishing by providing syndication services to website owners, ezine publishers, and more by providing high quality articles from those who have given their lives for their Saviour and God.

In addition, our authors provide a network of quality, experienced, and thoughtful resources for every believer and non-believer alike.

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

The Holy Scriptures - We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the verbally and plenary inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are the inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament are the complete and divine revelation of God to Man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning, where no one passage is taken, contextually, out of the normal and consistent doctrines of the Word of God. The King James Version of the Bible shall be the official and only translation used by this webstie, as we believe it to be the perfect preserved Word of God. (2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Pet 1:20-21)

The Godhead - We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit each coeternal in being, coidentical in nature, coequal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections, but given to specific roles for which man identifies and interacts with God. (Deut 6:4; Matt 28:19; 2 Cor 13:14; John 14:10, 26)

The Person and Work of Christ

  1. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man. (Isa 7:14; 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2, 14; 2 Cor 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Phil 2:5-8)
  2. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross and the shedding of His blood as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and, that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead and the application of His blood in Heaven. (Acts 2:18-36; Rom 3:24-25; 1 Pet 2:24; Eph 1:7; Heb 9:1-28; 1 Peter 1:3-5)
  3. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate. (Acts 1:9-10; Heb 7:25; 9:24; Rom 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2)

The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

  1. We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and, that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:8-11; Rom 8:9; 1 Cor 12:12-14; 2 Cor 3:6; Eph 1:13-14)
  2. We believe that He is the Divine Teacher who assists believers to understand and appropriate the Scriptures and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit. (Eph 1:17-18; 5:18; 1 John 2:20, 27)
  3. We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowal of spiritual gifts to every believer. God uniquely uses evangelists, pastors, and teachers to equip believers in the assembly and order that they can do the work of the ministry. (Rom 123-8; 1 Cor 12:4-11, 28; Eph 4:7-12)
  4. We believe that the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues and the gift of healing were, in every case, to bring a person to the knowledge of the Gospel. The gift of 'Tongues' being another spoken language by which a person can come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. God can and has chosen to answer the prayers of believers for physical healing. (1 Cor 1:22; 13:8; 14:21-22)

The Total Depravity of Man - We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and with understanding of sin becomes accountable for sin, and thus alienated from God; and, that man is totally depraved, and, of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Gen. 1:26-27; Rom 3:22-23; 5:12; 6:23; Eph 2:1-3; 4:17-19)

Salvation - We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness and washing away of our sins. The receiving of that gift is the only acceptable salvation plan. (John 1:12; Eph 1:17; 2:8-10; Heb 9:22-28; 1 Pet 1:4-5)

The Eternal Security and Assurance of Believers

  1. We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God's power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Rom 8:1, 38-39; 1 Cor 1:4-8; 1 Pet 1:4-5)
  2. We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God's Word, which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian Liberty as an occasion to the flesh. However, a believer who sins will suffer the natural consequences of sin and is not exempt from the natural punishments that the sin brings. (Rom 12:12-14; Gal 5:13; Titus 2:11-15, Gal 6:7)

The Church

  1. We believe that the local Church, which is the body and espoused bride of Christ, is solely made up of born-again persons. (1 Cor 12:12-14; 2 Cor 11:2; Eph 1:22-23; 5:25-27)
  2. We believe that the establishment and continuance of local Churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures. (Acts 14:27; 20:17, 28-32; 1 Tim 3:1-3; Titus 1:5-11)
  3. We believe in the autonomy of the local Church free of any external authority or control. (Acts 13:1-4; 15:19-31; 20:28; Rom 16:1,4; 1 Cor 3:9, 16; 5:4-7, 13; 1 Peter 5:1-4)
  4. We recognize water baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper as the Scriptural ordinances of obedience for the Church. (Matt 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; 18:18; 1 Cor 11:23-26)
  5. We believe that the first day of the week is the Lord's Day and as such is the day where the members of the Church shall come together. (Acts 20:7; Ps 118:24; Heb 10:24-25. 1 Cor 16:2; Rev 1:10; John 20:1, 19)

Separation - We believe that all believers should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Saviour and Lord; and, that separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations is commanded of God. (Rom 12:1-2; 14:13; 2 Cor 6:14-7:1; 2 Tim 3:1-5; 1 John 2:15-17; 2 John 9-11)

The Second Coming of Christ and the Thousand Year Reign of Christ - We believe in that "blessed hope," the personal, imminent return of Christ Who will rapture His Church prior to the seven-year period, known by some as the "Tribulation", and as Scripture calls "The Day of the Lord". At the end of this seven year period, Christ will personally and visibly return with his saints, to establish His earthly Messianic Kingdom for a thousand years, which was promised to the nation of Israel. (Ps 89:3-4; Dan 2:31-45; Zech 14:4-11; 1 Thess 1:10; 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Rev 3:10; 19:11-16; 20:1-6)

The Eternal State of the Soul and of Heaven and Hell

  1. We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. (Mat 25:46; John 5:28, 29; 11:25-26; Rev 20:5-6, 12-14)
  2. We believe that the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord in Heaven, where in conscious bliss they await the first resurrection, when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord. (Luke 23:43; 2 Cor 5:8; Phil 1:23; 3:21; 1 Thess 4:16-17; Rev 20:4-6)
  3. We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious punishment and torment until the second resurrection, when with soul and body reunited they shall appear at the Great White Throne of Judgment, and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated, but to suffer everlasting conscious punishment and torment. We believe that Hell was not created for man, but for Satan and his angels; however it was man's choice to sin that condemned him to Hell and it will be man's choice of the acceptance of Jesus Christ as his Saviour that will save him. (Matt 25:41-46; Mark 9:43-48; Luke 16:19-26; 2 Thess 1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Rev 20:11-15, Rom 10:13; 2 Pet 2:4; Jude 6; Mat 25:41)
