Plains Baptist Church
Founded on the Word, Focused on Reaching the World
The Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God, and the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
Jesus was virgin born, lived a sinless life, was the substitutionary blood atonement, had a bodily resurrection and ascension, and will physically return, before the tribulation, to gather all the saved, from the ends of the earth to Himself.
Salvation of sinners is wholly by grace, a free gift available to all by faith, and is evidenced by repentance and newness of life. The redeemed are kept by the power of God, through faith, unto eternal life and the lost into everlasting punishment.
The Holy Spirit indwells the believer, at the time of salvation, empowers for service, and sanctifies for life.
The Genesis account of creation was six (6), twenty-four (24) hour days.
The Church, founded during the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ, is a local, visible assembly of baptized believers, associated by a covenant of faith, and fellowship of the gospel, and is the instrument ordained by God to carry out His work on earth.
Baptism is by complete immersion, to be received only after the point of salvation, and under the authority of the local Church.
The Lord’s Supper is to be received by only the baptized members, in good fellowship of, and administered by, the local Church.
