At College Heights Baptist Church We Believe…
…God is the ultimate Creator, Sustainer, and Sovereign Ruler over all of creation and its creatures.
…our greatest pursuit in life should be to live all of our lives for God’s glory and to make Him known in the world.
…God inspired men to write the Bible without error and the Bible is God’s authoritative and final word to all of mankind.
…Jesus Christ is the eternal God-Man, meaning that He has existed as God for all of eternity and that He came to earth as a man.
…He then lived a perfect life, was crucified on a cross, and physically rose from the dead.
…Jesus is the rightful ruler of all creation and He will return to earth to judge all people.
…God created all people in His image and He has created them uniquely male and female.
…all people are born separated from God and need to be reconciled to God.
…reconciliation with God comes to us only through God’s gracious loving action toward us.
…reconciliation with God comes through faith in what Jesus has done for us on the cross and not on the basis of any good works we do.
…the Church consists of all those who place their faith in Jesus for all time and of all ethnic backgrounds.
…the local church is autonomous, having Christ as her Head
…baptism by immersion which follows conversion, by College Heights or a church of like faith, is a prerequisite for church membership.
