Being Baptist

Chattanooga Valley Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist Church affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. We adhere to the doctrinal statement as published in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000. These doctrinal truths include the following core beliefs:

God

There is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus

Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.

Christ's Return

Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.

Holy Spirit

God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.

Bible

The Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.

Man

Man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.

Salvation

Salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Assurance

Every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eternity

Those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.

Baptism

Water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.

Church

The church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

Prayer

Each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ through prayer.

Government

We believe in the separation of church and state, but not in separation of God and government. Christians are salt and light in society.
