Altamont Baptist Church

What We Believe

  • We believe that there is only one true God, who exists in three persons. He is the creator of all things and the redeemer of mankind. He exists as God the Father, God the Son in the person of Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe the Bible to be God’s  holy word to man. It is absolutely perfect and free of any mistakes.
  • We believe that the work of salvation is all of God’s work and man can do nothing to earn it.
  • We believe God created male and female. Man fell into sin by his own will and is completely dependent on God for life and salvation.
  • We believe that salvation is a grace gift from the Lord and is offered freely to everyone. Salvation comes only through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that all Christians observe the two ordinances of the church,  baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is the immersion of  the believer in water signifying their union with Christ and the church. The Lord’s Supper is the remembrance of Christ's death and our accountability to obedience to Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that salvation includes repentance, the turning away from sin; faith, the  belief and trust in Jesus Christ; justification,  the total pardon of all sin; sanctification, the growth of every Christian in Christ-likeness; and glorification, the final and ultimate perfection of every Christian.
  • We believe that the first day of the week is the Sabbath Day in which Christians worship God with a body of believers.
  • We believe that God in his own timing  will bring the world back to a right end. Jesus Christ will physically return to earth. The world will be judged and all Christians will be brought to live together with Christ in Heaven for eternity.
