Our Beliefs
Rensford Independent Missionary Baptist Church
We believe there is one true and living God and He exists in three (1 John
5:7, Matt. 28:19, 1 Tim. 3:16)

We believe the lord Jesus Christ was God manifested in the flesh and
was born of a virgin.
(1 Tim. 3:16 ,1 John 5:20, Matt 1 20:25)

We believe all of mankind are natural born sinners and inherit their snin
nature from Adam.
(Gen. 5:1-5, Rom. 3:10-23)

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for the sins of the whole world,
was buried and physically rose from the dead three days later. This is the
gospel of the grace of God.
(1 Cor. 15:1-4, Gal. 1:3-9 ,1John 2:1-2)

We believe salvation is by grace through faith in the finished blood
atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ. This salvation is offered as a free gift
and is received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are not
Calvinists.
(Acts 16:30-31, Eph. 2:8-9, Rom. 10:8-13)

We believe in the eternal security of every true born again child of God.
(Eph. 1:12-13 ,Phil. 1:6, Rom. 8:35-39)

We believe water baptism is by immersion and is a figure of the death,
burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
(Matt. 28:19-20, Acts 8:36-38)

We believe the scriptures are inspired and preserved and are found today
in the 66 books of the King James Authorized Version Holy Bible. This
Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
(Psa. 12:6-7, 2Tim. 3:16, Eccl. 8:4, Prov. 30:5)

We believe the Bible is to be rightly divided in order to be understood, you
must be born again to interpret the Word of God.
(2Tim. 2:15)

We believe in the autonomy of the local church, therefore, we are
independent and are not governed by any convention, fellowship or
denominational headquarters.

We believe Heaven is a literal place where the saved reside with God.
(John 14:1-3)

We believe Hell is on fire ans a soul goes there by rejecting Gods
provision for their sin.
(Luke 16:19-31, Matt. 25:41)

We believe Christians are to witness and win others to the Lord Jesus
Christ.

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming again. He will translate the
body of Christ out of his world and return physically to Jerusalem some
seven years later to set up his 1000 year kingdom. The intervening time
period between the catching away and the Second Advent is known as
the great Tribulaion when God will renew His dealings with the nation of
Israel.
(1 Thess. 4:13-18, Rev. 19:11-16, Rev. 20:1-7, Rom. 11:25-27)
