North Athens Baptist Church
We Believe that the Bible is the Word of God, Supernaturally inspired so that is is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration, so that it is a divinely authoritatives standard for every age and every life.
We beilieve that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons -Father, Son, and Holy Spirit- and that these three are one God.
We believe that God is absolute and sole creator of the universe, and that creation was by divine order, not through evolutionary process.
We believe that God, by His sovereign and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners.
We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and wrought mightily works and wonders and signs exactly as revealed in the four Gospels, that He was crucified, died as a penalty for sins and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. Later He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers, and from whence He is coming again personally, bodily, visibly to this earht to set up His millennial kingdom.
We believe that since in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord, Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us - men are saved, justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood.
We believe that salvation with its forgiveness of sins, it's importation of a new mature and its hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptistm, church membership - or man's efforts - and is of pure grace.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the pirmary personage of the Godhead that we deal with on a daily basis. We believe that there is a second experience subsequent to that of salvation whereby we are filled or controlled by the Holy Spirit.
