About Carolina Missionary Baptist Church
Carolina Church accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all sufficient rule for faith and practice and for the purpose of maintaining general unity. We adopt the following statement of fundamental truths:
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Bible to be the inspired authoritative Word of God. II Timothy 3:16-17
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Gen. 1:1, John 5:7.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in the blessed hope of His personal, visible, future return to this earth to receive to Himself His blood-bought church that it may be with Him forever. 1 John 1:1-10
We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through confession, repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.
We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation. Romans 10:9
We believe in the redemptive work of Christ on the cross and that it provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.
We believe in the spirit-filled life as desirable, valuable and an issue of obedience for all Believers who are commanded to be filled with the Holy Ghost. We acknowledge that within the Body of Christ the term, “filled with the Holy Ghost is often used interchangeably with the term, “Baptism of the Holy Ghost.” When referring to the controlling presence and power of the Holy Ghost as a result of the submissive will and desire of the Believer, we allow such alternation of terms. We believe it is the will of and command of God that every believer be “filled”, walk in, be led by, and live in the power of the Holy Ghost. Eph. 5:18, Galatians 5:16, 18
We believe in the divine personhood of the Holy Spirit and His present day ministry to believers, including the sovereign distribution of spiritual gifts, which empowers believers for service in the modern day church. We further believe that all gifts are operative. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.
We believe in water baptism and observation of the Lord’s Supper.
Mathew 3:11, Matthew 26:26-29
