The Bible – We believe that the King James Bible is the perfect Word of God. We believe that it is inspired and preserved. We believe that all other English translations of the Bible are corrupt and are perversions of God’s Word.
Salvation – We believe that salvation is by faith alone in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Salvation is not by works.
Eternal Security – We believe “once saved, always saved”. Once a person believes and trusts in Jesus Christ, the Bible teaches that it is impossible for a person to lose their salvation. It is everlasting.
Repentance – We do not believe that a person must “repent of their sins” or “turn from their sins” to be saved. Salvation is not achieved by turning over a new leaf or cleaning up your life. It is by grace through faith, not of works.
Hell – We believe that Hell is a literal place of fiery torment. A person who dies without believing on the Lord Jesus Christ will spend eternity in hell.
The Trinity – We believe that the Godhead is made up of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and that these three are one.
Soul Winning and Evangelism – We believe that it is the duty of every Christian to go out and preach the Gospel to the lost. Stedfast Baptist Church is a soul winning church. We believe and practice door to door soul winning. We believe that God wants all people to be saved, therefore we do NOT believe in Calvinism or “irresistible grace”. We believe that an unsaved person cannot be saved unless they hear God’s Word and are given a choice to believe on Jesus Christ or reject the free gift of eternal life. Salvation is a choice made by the individual.
The End Times – We believe in a post tribulation – pre wrath rapture. We do not believe in a secret pre tribulation rapture. The rapture takes place after the tribulation, but before God pours out his wrath on the Earth.
