WHAT WE BELIEVE
That Jesus Christ is the Son of God; that he lived, died and rose from the dead to provide, for all who will accept it, eternal life. We accept into membership those who believe in Jesus Christ and have been baptized into him by immersion and are now desiring to live a consistent, holy Christian life.
That the Bible is the error-free Word of God. Through regular study, the Bible gives guidance in all areas of life.
In one God-Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
God is the Creator of all things.
In Jesus Christ, God's only Son and Savior of the world.
In the Holy Spirit, who indwells every Christian.
In the Bible - God's Holy Word- without error in its original form, and inspired by the Holy Spirit.
In the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
That man, created by God, willfully sinned and , as a result, is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
That salvation - the forgiveness of sins - comes by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
The Bible teaches that one receives Christ as Lord and Savior by faith.
That faith is not just a state of mind, but an action that can be seen in our lives by: belief in Jesus Christ, repentance of personal sin, confession of Christ publicly, being immersed in baptism, and living in obedience to the commands of Christ. Each of these is clearly taught in the word of God as a response to true, saving faith.
That the church is the body and bride of Christ, was founded on the day of Pentecost, and consists of all Christians everywhere.
That God has ordained that elders are to exercise spiritual leadership and authority over the local congregation as servant leaders.
That death seals the eternal destiny of each person. When Christ returns, He will pronounce the eternal fate of each individual, both living and dead. The saved will be assigned eternal life, the unsaved will suffer eternal separation from God.
BCCC is a non-denominational church. It is our desire to unite believers by holding fast to the essentials taught in Scripture, giving freedom to believers in the non-essentials, and maintaining Christian Love in all things.
