Articles of Faith
Baptist is one who places his faith in the basic principles of the Holy
Scriptures and endeavors to live in accordance to those Bible precepts. Following are the Articles of Faith of the
Victory Over The World Baptist Church.
I. OF THE SCRIPTURES
We believe that the Holy Bible was
written by man supernaturally inspired; that it has truth without any mixture
of error for its matter; and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the
age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man; conduct,
creeds and opinions should be tried.
1. By “The Holy
Bible” we mean that collection of sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelation, this
as originally written does not only contain and convey the Word of God, but IS
the very Word of God.
2. By “inspiration”
we mean that books of the Bible were written by holy men of old, as they were
moved by the Holy Spirit, in such a definite way that their writings were
supernaturally and verbally inspired and free from error, as no other writings
have ever been or ever will be inspired.
II Tim. 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21; Acts 1:16; Acts
Psalm 119:160; Psalm 119:105; Psalm 119:130; Luke
OF THE TRUE GOD
We believe that there is One and
only one, living and true God, and intelligent Spirit, the maker and supreme
ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worth of all
possible honor, confidence, and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there
are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, equal in every
divine perfection executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work
Genesis 17:1; I Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:6; John 4:24;
Psalm 147:5; Psalm
83:18; Psalm 90:2; Jer. 10:10; Exodus 15:11
OF JESUS CHRIST
believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without
ceasing to be god, having been supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit and born
of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man.
1:23; John 1:1; Luke 1:34
IV. OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
That the Holy Spirit is a divine
person; equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature; that
He was active in the creation; that in His relation to the unbelieving world He
restrains the Evil one until God’s purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts sin,
of judgment and of righteousness; that He bears witness to the Truth of the
Gospel in preaching and testimony; that he is the agent in the new Birth; that
he seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies, and helps the believer.
Matthew 28:19; Hebrew 9:14; John 16:8
