Southwest Baptist Church is an independent body of believers allied with the Southern Baptist Convention, dedicated to reaching into the community around us to reach those people who are lost and needing to hear the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
What We Believe
We believe people--every person--has great potential for good but in an attitude of disobedience God calls sin, we miss God's best and turn away; sin estranges us from God. God reconciles us by His grace apart from any work or works of our own when we place our trust for our eternal destiny and daily provision in Jesus Christ.
We believe in the Bible as our source of authority and as our standard for living.
We believe in one God co-existing in three persons; the Father; Jesus Christ who lived a perfect life, died for our sins and rose bodily from the dead on the third day; and the Holy Spirit whose presence is seen and felt today, and Who comes to permanently live in every believer the moment one enters into saving faith (trusting in Jesus alone for forgiveness and salvation).
We believe this same Spirit gives believers spiritual gifts to be used in serving God and others both inside and outside of the church, the power for living, a heart to love, accept and forgive others, guidance into spiritual maturity, and development as a truly human being.
