Here at Providence Baptist Church, we are a people who claim a personal relationship to God through Jesus Christ and corporate relationship with each other and the worship; we affirm the centrality of Scripture in our lives; who gather regularly to praise God; we strive to fulfill the Great Commission to make disciples; we affirm the Church’s unity as given in Jesus Christ; we care for the needy, the weak, the poor, and the oppressed. We are a people who are gifted by a variety of ethnicity and backgrounds, and we find unity in our diversity and diversity in our unity. We have a vision for the future; and trust in the Holy Spirit’s power through prayer for insight and power to live transform lives in renewed communities in this present age.
We join with other Christian brothers and sisters around the world, believing that:
- The Bible is the final authority and trustworthy for faith and practice. It is to be interpreted responsibly under the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit within the community of faith;
- The Church is a gathered fellowship of regenerated believers, a sign of the coming universal reign of God;
- Our freedom to respond to the Lordship of Christ in all circumstances is fundamental to the Christian gospel and to human dignity;
- Within the larger Christian family our witness to Christ is the ongoing task of every Christian and of every church.
