Bellevue Baptist Church is a conservative Southern Baptist congregation. As such we adhere to following basic and fundamental beliefs:

  1. The Bible is God’s word and is without error. It does not simply “contain” the Word of God; it IS the Word of God. It was written by men who were divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit as they wrote. God inspired them to write exactly what He wanted written and in the process He perfectly expressed Himself through these men who wrote without contradiction or error.
  2. The Bible states that He was born of a virgin, which is proof of his divinity, and we accept what the scripture teaches. If He was not born of a virgin, then He was not divine. If He was not divine, He cannot be the Savior of all mankind. Having been born without an earthly father He is the God-man.
  3. Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life, fulfilling God’s law perfectly, and thus being the only acceptable, permanent sacrifice for mankind’s sin. Through His great love for us He willingly bore the punishment for sin in our place. He satisfied the wrath of God against sin so that the judgment of God fell on Him instead of the believer. We believe that only Jesus was capable of standing in our place and atoning for our sins. The blood of Jesus that was shed on Calvary is the only acceptable sacrifice for our sin.
  4. We Believe that Jesus died on the cross at Calvary, was buried, and God literally raised His body from the grave after three days. By being raised from the dead He conquered death forever thus making is possible for the Christian to be victorious over death as well. His literal resurrection provides our literal victory over death.
  5. We believe in the literal return of Jesus Christ as promised in the Scripture. Scripture reveals that HE is coming again to deliver believers and to set up His Kingdom. Only the Father in Heaven knows the exact hour He will return but his return is imminent. Our joy and hope is found in the assurance of His victorious Second Coming.

In addition to these things, we adhere to the Baptist Faith and Message of 2000 which is a doctrinal position statement adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention of which we are a part.
