What We Believe

We at Ridgecrest Baptist Church believe and:

  • AFFIRM our confidence in God's inerrant Word. We treasure its truths and respect its reproofs.

  • ACKNOWLEDGE the Creator-God as our Heavenly Father, infinitely perfect, and intimately acquainted with all our ways.

  • CLAIM Jesus Christ as our Lord; very God who came in Human flesh; the object of our worship and the subject of praise.

  • RECOGNIZE the Holy Spirit as Godhead constantly at work convicting, convincing, and comforting.

  • CONFESS that Adam's fall into sin left humanity without the hope of heaven apart from a new birth, made possible by the Savior's death and bodily resurrection.

  • BELIEVE the offering of salvation is God's love gift to all. Those who accept it by faith, apart from works, become new creatures in Christ.

  • ANTICIPATE our Lord's promised return which could occur at any time.

  • ARE CONVINCED that all who have died will be brought back from beyond, believers to everlasting communion with God; unbelievers to everlasting separation from God.

  • KNOW that the Lord is continuing to enlarge His Family, the Body of Christ, over which He rules as Head.

  • ARE GRATEFUL to be a part of a local church that exists to proclaim God's truth, administer the ordinances, to stimulate growth toward maturity, and to bring glory to God.

  • SUPPORT the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message of the Southern Baptist Convention.
