About Second Baptist Church, Inc.

APOSTLE CREED

“I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the
power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under
Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again. He ascended
into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come
again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit; and the holy {Universal Christian, ‘Baptist’
Church}; the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection
of the body, and life everlasting.” Amen!

SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH, WE ARE:

EVANGELICALS:

We believe and subscribe to the 66-canonical books of the
Holy Bible, which is neither up for change nor revision in any form
(Deuteronomy 4:2 NKJV). We believe in the Holy Trinity of the Godhead.

ORTHODOX:

Means we conform to the established biblical doctrine of the
first century A.D. (Anno Domini) Christian Church (I Timothy 6:3-5 NKJV).
And as BAPTISTS, we believe in two baptisms: “Spirit and Water.” Spirit
Baptism is within, which is being “born again;” and “Water Baptism” is
without, by immersion only as a sign of an inward work of grace (Romans
10:9; 10-13; John 5:24; Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV).

MARRIAGE:

The Bible teaches that “marriage” is a sanctified union
ordained of God; His First Institution set in order for mankind. The early
chapters of Genesis are codified in the Leviticus Law of God. Marriage is
sanctification between a male and female of the human family only; and is
a typology of Christ and His church (Ephesians 5:22-33 NKJV). We are
promised by God: “Two Nots,” “Two I Ams,” and “Three I Wills” in (Isaiah
41:10 NKJV). We firmly accept, and are guided by His promise.
