Statement of faith for Voice of the Rockies Ministry

(A ministry of Grace Baptist Church, Brett Travis Pastor)

 

1.        I believe that the King James Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God and that all other versions such as NKJV, NIV, NASV, RSV and others are all counterfeits.  (Psalms 12:6-7, Proverbs 30:5, Matthew 5:4, Matthew 24:35, Matthew 5:18, I Peter 1:23)

 

2.       I believe that there is one God, eternally existent in all three Persons:  God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  (John 10:30, I John 5:7)

 

3.        I believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ including His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection from the grave, as well as His personal and pre-millennial return for His saints and with His saints as stated in the book of Revelation.  (Hebrews 1:1-14, Matthew 1:23, John 3:2, II Corinthians 5:21, Romans 10:9, I Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 4:1-2)

 

4.        I believe in the total depravity of mankind and that man is in need of the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit through the new birth.  (Isaiah 64:6, John 3:3, Romans 3:10, Romans 6:23, Hebrews 9:27)

 

5.       I believe that salvation is by grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on Calvary plus nothing! (Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9)

 

6.       I believe in the eternal security of the believer.  (John 10:28-29, Romans 8:1, Ephesians 4:30)

 

7.       I believe in carrying out the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ though personal soul-winning, prayer, and financial support of missions.  (Proverbs 11:30, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8)

 

8.       I believe in a literal devil and literal Hell, where people who reject the Lord Jesus Christ will spend eternity.  (Genesis 3:1-5, Job 1:6-12, I Peter 5:8, Luke 16:19-31, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:10-15)

 

9.       I believe in the local church, which is a body of baptized believers who come together in obedience to Christ to carry out the dictates of the New Testament.  (Matthew 16:18, Ephesians 5:25, Hebrews 10:25, I Corinthians 12:12-27)

 

10.    I believe and practice both ecclesiastical and personal separation on the basis of the Word of God.  (Romans 12:1, II Corinthians 6:14-18, I John 2:15)
