The most important part of any church is what they believe. Grace Baptist Church is founded solely on the Word of God. Here is a short summary of our core beliefs. You can read our full doctrinal statement which is the New Hampshire Confession of Faith. If you have questions about what we believe, please contact us and we will be glad to open God’s word with you to find answers.
We believe that the only true God is the creator of this world, the supreme ruler over his creation, and has revealed himself through his Son Jesus Christ (who is God), and through the Bible. God alone is worthy of our praise, and his glory is the reason we exist.
We believe that the Bible is God’s perfect Word, completely without error, and that in the Bible is everything we need to know to be everything that God has called us to be.
We believe that men and women are created in the image of God, but because Adam our father sinned, his sin has infected every single human who has ever lived, except Jesus Christ. Because of our sin, we are separated from God in spiritual death and in need of salvation from sin.
We believe that salvation from sin comes only through faith alone in Christ. of alone. We can do nothing to earn our salvation, and our works do not contribute to our salvation in anyway. Only by faith in Christ can we be free from the power and penalty of sin in our lives. We believe that God is calling people to himself for salvation through the teaching and preaching of the Bible. We believe that each person who has by faith committed their lives to Christ for salvation should publicly testify by being baptized as a sign of their salvation.
We believe that the church is Christ’s body, and is God’s chosen instrument through which he is working in this age. He expects every true follower of Christ to be involved in a local church body for worship, evangelism, learning, fellowship, and service.
We believe that Christ will return at the close of this age to redeem his followers from this earth, to judge sin, to set up his kingdom, and to reign in righteousness. At the end of the world, every single person will have to give an account to God for their lives. Those who trusted Christ alone for salvation will spend eternity in heaven with God. Those who never came to Christ in faith for salvation will be separated from God for all eternity in hell.
