What We Believe

What we believe at Union Grove Baptist Church in Union Grove, WI

There is no shortage of churches that are vague as to what they believe. However, we desire to be as clear and honest as possible about who we are.  The following Statement of Faith summarizes what we believe the Bible teaches us.

We recognize, however, the impossibility of getting to know an entity just by looking at a website. We invite you to come and join us for Sunday morning worship. For information regarding more details about our beliefs at Union Grove Baptist Church, feel free to contact us, and we’ll be more than happy to discuss any questions you may have!

 

Our Lifestyle Statement- What We Believe and Practice:
in the inspiration, authority, and sufficiency of the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

 

in the absolute sovereignty of the one, living, true, perfect, eternal and Triune God. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10 & 26)

 

 in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death on our behalf, and His physical resurrection from the grave. (Isaiah 7:14 & 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2 & 1:14; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-8) (Acts 2:18-36; Romans 3:24-25; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1Peter 1:3-5)

 

that Christ ascended into heaven where He is now exalted at the right hand of God the Father as our Great High Priest. (Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 9:24 & 7:25; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2)

 

  in the personal and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Psalm 89:3-4; Daniel 2:31-45; Zechariah 14:4-11; 1 Thessalonians 1:10 & 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Revelation 3:10, 19:11-16, & 20:1-6)

 

  that all mankind became alienated from God by the sin of Adam. The natural man is totally depraved, abiding under the wrath of God, unable to remedy his lost condition, and in need of regeneration. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23, 5:12, & 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-3 & 4:17-19)

 

  that Jesus Christ, who was completely without sin, was able to make a full substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and is God’s only provision for the remission of our sins. (Acts 2:18-36; Romans 3:24-25; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1Peter 1:3-5)

 

  that salvation is freely offered to all who will believe and accept it. (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7 & 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19)

 

  that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone. (John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25;  10:10, 14; 1 Peter 1:3-5)

 

  that the Holy Spirit regenerates and instantly baptizes all believers into the body of Christ. He indwells, sanctifies, instructs, and empowers all believers for service, and seals them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:8-11; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians 1:13-14)

 

  in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust. The redeemed are raised to everlasting life and eternal joy, while the wicked suffer eternal damnation.  (Matthew 1:20-25; Matthew 17:5; Luke 1:26-35; John 8:28; John 14:3; I Corinthians 15:4; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 9:24; Hebrews 10:12; I John 2:2)

 

  that Christians have the solemn obligation to conduct themselves in a manner worthy of the gospel. (Genesis 18:23; Proverbs 11:31; Proverbs 14:32; Malachi 3:18; Matthew 7:13,14; Matthew 25:34,41; Luke 9:26; Luke 16:25; John 8:21; John 12:25; Acts 10:34,35; Romans 1:17; Romans 6:16-18,23; Romans 7:6; I Corinthians 15:22; Galatians 3:10; I Peter 4:18; I John 2:29; I John 3:7; I John 5:19)

 

  that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. (Luke 5:27; John 1:12,13; John 3:3,6-8; Acts 2:41; Acts 16:30-33; Romans 6:23; II Corinthians 5:17,19; Galatians 5:22; Ephesians 2:1; Ephesians 5:9; Colossians 2:13; II Peter 1:4; I John 5:1)
