HERF Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith of Rainbow Forest Baptist Church

We believe the Bible is the written Word of God and it is infallible, inerrant, &authoritative in matters of faith and practice.

We believe in the Trinity of God; God the Father, God the Son, & God the Holy Spirit. They are co-equal in their nature and attributes.

We believe in the virgin birth, the perfect life, the vicarious death, the bodily resurrection, & visible return of Jesus Christ.

We believe salvation is by grace through faith, nothing more, nothing less.

We believe in the eternal security & preservation of the saved.

We believe the Church is a local autonomous body of baptized believers covenanted together to carry out the commands of Christ.

We believe these two ordinances: Baptism by immersion & the Lord's Supper to commemorate His sacrifice for us.

We believe that born-again believers should live holy & dedicated lives unto the Lord.

We believe in a Heaven for the saved & a Hell for the lost.

We believe in the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ.
