What We Believe

                           Beloved . . . it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should                            earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.  - Jude 3

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Good News 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.


We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God, and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life in all matters to which they speak. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:19, 20)


We believe that God is a sovereign, living, intelligent, rational being and that He has a plan for man and for the universe. We believe He has the will, power, and authority, and is actively engaged in carrying that plan to completion.
(Genesis 18:25; Isaiah 57:15; Ephesians 2:10; Romans 8:28, 29)
We believe in One God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4, 5; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 1 John 5:7; Matthew 28:19)

Son of God

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of
Mary, a virgin, and is true God and true man.
(Matthew 1:18-20; Luke 1:26-38; John 14:7-11; John 20:28; Galatians 4:4, 5)

Creation and Mankind

We believe in the literal Genesis account of creation. We believe that man was create in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners
in thought, word and deed.
(Genesis 1:26, 27; Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23)


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
(1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Hebrews 10:9-12; Romans 3:24)
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there as High Priest and Advocate.
(I Corinthians 15:1-20; John 20:24-29; Acts 1:10, 11;
Hebrews 1:3; 4:14-16 and 7:25; I Timothy 2:5)
We believe in the “eternal security” of the believer; that it is impossible for one born into the family of God ever to be lost.
(John 1:12; John 10:27, 28)

The Church

We believe that the true church is the mystical body of Christ, of which He is the Living Head, and the regenerate believers, Jew and Gentile, are the members. (Ephesians 5:23-32; Matthew 16:18; Acts 2; Colossians 3:11)
The local church is ordained of God for this age. It is a body of baptized believers organized to meet together for the purpose of observing the ordinances and to carry out the principles, precepts, and commission of Christ.
(I Timothy 3:15; Acts 2:41-47 and 14:23; Ephesians 4:11-16; Matthew 28:18-20)

Return of Christ

We believe in “that blessed hope” the personal, pre- millennial, pre-tribulational and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, when the church will be “gathered together unto Him.”
(Titus 2:13; Acts 1:10, 11; I Thessalonians 4:13-17)
We believe that after the seven year tribulation period on earth, the Revelation of Jesus Christ when He comes back to the earth with His saints to stand on the Mount of Olives in the full radiance of His eternal glory will occur.
(Matthew 24:27-31; Jude 14, 15; Zechariah 14:1-9)
We believe in the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ thereafter– the literal reign of 1000 years by Jesus Christ on earth over all people, nations, and tongues. This will especially be the fulfillment of the promises to Israel for their Messiah the King to reign on the throne of David.
(Revelation 20:4-6; Philippians 2:9-11)
