Statement of Faith

Dell Dale Ave. Baptist Church believes the Bible is God’s Holy Word, divinely inspired, and is the final authority in Christian living.  We believe in one God, revealed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Our church family believes that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, conceived by the Holy Spirit, lived a sinless life, and crucified on a cross for our sins, was buried and arose from the dead.  He now sits on the right hand of the Father, interceding for believers.
Dell Dale Ave. Baptist Church also believes that all men are lost and must come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as Savior.  We believe that once a person accepts Jesus Christ as Savior, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within.  It is then that responsibility of the saved to follow Jesus in baptism and become part of a Bible believing church as the first steps of obedience.
We believe that God’s Word clearly teaches that Jesus Christ is coming soon for those who believe in Him and will take His church to heaven to be with Him for eternity.
