Burnett Avenue Missionary Baptist Church Beliefs

The Source & Freeness of Salvation: We believe that through faith in Jesus Christ, grace is the only source of salvation for sinners. Jesus who is sinless took upon himself our sin and was obedient to death on the cross and made full atonement for our transgressions. Jesus was raised from the dead and is now seated in heaven on the right hand of the Father making intercession for us, and he is our all-sufficient Savior. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes salvation free to all who believe, and any and all persons can be saved regardless of their past sins.Scriptural References: Eph. 2:8; John 3:16; Isa. 42:40; Isa. 53:4-5; He. 1:8; He. 7:25; Isa. 55:1. 

Justification
We believe that we are justified through Christ Jesus, and Justification includes pardon of sin, and the promise of eternal life. Through faith, God gives us credit for the righteousness of Christ, which brings us into favor with God, and obtains for us all the blessings we needed in time and in eternity. Scriptural References: Acts 13:39; Rom. 5:9; Rom. 5:17; Rom. 4:4-5.

By Grace We are Born Again
We believe that in order for a person to be saved they must be born again. This New Birth is the work of the Holy Spirit and it consists of a holy disposition of the mind, which improves our understanding in connection with divine truth. The fruit of our life are evidence of the new birth. Scriptural References: John 3:3; 2-Cor. 5:17; John 3:8; 1-John 5:1; Gal. 5:22-25.

Repentance & Faith
We believe that Repentance and Faith are accomplished in our souls by the powerful regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, wherein we turn to God with sorrow and remorse seeking His mercy; at the same time we receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Prophet, Priest and King, and we depend on Him for our eternal salvation. Scriptural References: Mark 1:15; Eph. 2:8; Acts 2:37-38; Rom. 10:9-11.

The Purpose of Grace
We believe that by grace God has elected to regenerate, sanctify and save sinners while at the same time God will hold us responsible as free moral agents. This is a glorious display of God’s goodness being eternally free, possessing all wisdom, completely wholly and unchangeable. Scriptural References: 2-Tim. 1:8-9; Ex. 33:18-19; 1-Thess. 4:10; Rm. 8:28-31; 2-Pet. 1:10-11.
