At Compass Baptist Church we believe Concerning ...

The Bible
  • that it is true and without error, preserved by God in the King James translation and is the final authority that contains all of the answers to life.

    Psalms 12:6-7; 119:89, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 1 Peter 1:23

God
  • that there is only one God, who is a trinity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. These three are one while manifested to men as separate persons.

    Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Ephesians 4:6, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Matthew 28:19, John 15:26; John 5:7; 10:30, Acts 5:3-4

  • that He is omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful) and omnipresent (ever present).

    Psalms 139:1-6, 7-16; 147:5 Hebrews 1:3; 4:13, Daniel 4:35, Exodus 15:11, Proverbs 15:3

Satan
  • that he is a literal being who once, as Lucifer, enjoyed an exalted position in the presence of God, but due to pride attempted to exalt himself above God and fell from his position.

    Ezekiel 28:12-19, Isaiah 14:12-16, Revelation 12:1-9

  • that he continues to oppose God and all who are God’s to the end of time, however, God’s Word binds him and it is only by God’s leave that he is the primary spirit of this age.

    Job 1:6-12, 2:1-7, Zechariah 3:1-3, Ephesians 2:2, 2 Corinthians 4:4

Heaven and Hell
  • that they are a literal places, Heaven being the abode of God and the destiny of the righteous and Hell the destiny of the wicked.

    Matthew 25:46, Luke 16:19-31, Revelation 20:11-15; 21:6-8; 21:1-3, John 14:1-3, 1 Peter 1:3-4

  • that Hell was originally established for the Devil and his angels and that God does not intend for any man or woman to make Hell their eternal destination.

    Matthew 25:41, 2 Peter 3:9

Creation
  • that the universe and everything in it is the creation of God.

    Genesis, 1:1; Psalms 33:6-9

  • that the Genesis account of creation is true and to be taken literally, that is that God created the earth in seven literal days including the creation of man on the sixth day.

    Genesis 1, Exodus 20:11, Colossians 1:16-17, Romans 1:19-20, Nehemiah 9:6

  • that God created man after His image in a perfect and innocent state, that woman was created by God from the rib of man and that both were placed in the garden of Eden.

    Genesis 1:26-27; 2:7-9, 21-23

The Fall of Man
  • that Man, through his choice to disobey God by partaking of the forbidden fruit, sinned and as a result passed his sin nature down to all of mankind.

    Genesis 3:1-6, Romans 5:12, 19, Ephesians 2:2

Jesus Christ
  • that He was God in the flesh who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life on this earth, willingly gave his life through death on the cross as the atonement for the sin of man and was raised to sit on the right hand of the God where he remains today.

    1 Timothy 3:16, John 1:1-4, 14, Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-25; 16:19; 20:28; 27:24-50, 2 Corinthians 5:20-21, Hebrews 2:4; 4:14-15; 9:12-17, Isaiah 53, John 3:16; 10:14-18, 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, 20-22, Colossians 3:1

Salvation
  • that as a result of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, salvation, that is reconciliation with God, is made available freely to any individual who will repent, believe that Jesus Christ rose again and is willing to confess Him as Lord of their Life.

    John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5:19-20, 2 Peter 3:9, Acts 17:30; 26:18-20; 1 Peter 2:24, Isaiah 53:4-7, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Romans 10:9-10

  • that God offers Salvation by His grace and through our faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; there is nothing any individual can do, no works of righteousness, to justify himself or herself before God.

    Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 3:24, Matthew 11:28-30, 2 Peter 3:9

  • that once an individual has accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as His saviour, nothing he or she can do will cause God to revoke the salvation He freely offered.
The Holy Spirit
  • that at the moment individual accepts the Lord Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit of God wholly and completely takes up residence in, “Fills”, that person.

    John 4:13; 14:16-18, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Baptism
  • that it is to be by immersion and is the first act of obedience of a new believer.

    Matthew 3:15-17, John 3:23, Acts 8:27-39

  • that baptism is merely an outward symbol of an inward change and is not an integral part of a believer’s salvation. It merely provides a clear conscience before God in being obedient.

    Romans 2:12; 6:3-7, 1 Peter 3:21

The Church
  • that the church is made up of all believers in Jesus Christ and membership in it is through faith and trust in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Acts 2:41-42, 1 Corinthians 12:13-27, Ephesians 4:11-15

Christian Responsibility
  • that every Christian is to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ; that is to personally change to become more like the Lord Jesus Christ daily and to fulfil the Great Commission in their lives.

    Matthew 28:19-20, Philippians 2:5-12, Titus 2:11-15

Spiritual Gifts
  • that each Christian does NOT have a specific gift that they are to exercise or to find, but rather they are to focus on serving God and the Holy Spirit will empower them as He desires.

    Romans 12:3-8, 1 Corinthians 12:1-11

Prophecy
  • that God has for a time turned His back on the Nation of Israel and will once again focus on His chosen people after the Rapture of the church. That the Rapture of the church will be before the tribulation (Pre-tribulation rapture). And that the second coming of Christ will occur after the Great Tribulation and prior to the establishment of the Millennial Kingdom (pre-millennial).

    Romans 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:50-54, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Luke 21:7-36, Revelation 20:1-5, Matthew 24:3-51
