"We exist to be a redeeming station to the lost, a grounding station to the unsettled, a medical station to the hurting, a refueling station to those serving, and a glory station to our God." We accomplish this by Loving God, Loving People, and Making Disciples.
It is our desire to help others know Christ in a way that transforms their daily lives and the lives of those around them.
We first and foremost value the Almighty God; we seek to bring Him glory as we proclaim the truth of His Word. We then value people, who were made in the image of God, choosing to love them as Christ has loved us.
The doctrinal beliefs of Agnes Baptist Church are found in the Holy Bible. The following is a brief synopsis of what we believe. A more detailed doctrinal statement is available upon request.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God, and is the sole authority for life and faith.
We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless and perfect life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.
We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.
We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.
We believe that salvation is a gift of grace received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.
We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.
We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ will come again to receive those who have trusted Him as Savior into Heaven. This event, referred to as the Rapture, will be followed by the seven-year Tribulation Period, at the end of which we will return with Christ to rule and reign for a thousand years, a period known as the Millennial Reign of Christ.
