The following are the core beliefs of New Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
About the Bible: We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. As such, it is true without any mixture of error and is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.
About God: We believe that there is one living and true God Who has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and Who is worthy of all possible honor, worship, and praise. As Creator, Redeemer, and Ruler of heaven and earth. He is expressibly glorious in holiness and love.
About Jesus Christ: We believe in the full humanity and deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, death on the cross for our sins, bodily resurrection and ascension, present ministry of intercession of believers, and His personal and visible return in power and glory.
The Holy Spirit
About the Holy Spirit: We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit Who regenerates unbelievers, the evidence of which is repentance, faith, newness of life. We believe He indwells believers, enabling them to live a godly life, transforming them to the likeness of Christ, and keeping them by power of God until the day of Jesus Christ.
About Salvation: We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, Who is the only and all-sufficient Savior and the only Mediator between God and man; and that the Gospel of salvation should be shared with every person in the world.
About Man: We believe that man was created in the image of God and was intended to have fellowship with God. However, since Adam, all men are sinners by nature and by choice, and are under the just condemnation of the Holy and Righteous God.
About the Church: We believe that the church, the Body of Christ, is a group of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the Gospel. The two ordinances of the Church are Baptism by immersion in water and the Lord’s Supper, a provision of bread and fruit of the vine representing the body and blood of Christ.
