So, what is Cultivating eternal relationships to see Lives changed for the Glory of God all about?

We exist to know and worship our Creator. In His Word, He commands us to love Him and love one another. These are the eternal relationships we seek to cultivate. 


As a church, Indian Springs Baptist accomplishes this in four specific ways: 


Worship - Responding in Unity to the exalted Christ


Connect - Experiencing fellowship with the body of Christ


Serve - Employing your gifts to edify and equip the body of Christ


Share - Communicating Christ to the world in word and deed.

What we believe


1. ABOUT GOD

God  is  the  Creator  and  Ruler  of  the  universe.  He  has  eternally  existed  in  three  personalities:  the  Father,  the  Son,  and  the  Holy  Spirit. These  three  are  co-equal  and  are  one  God. 

(Genesis  1:1, 26, 27; 3:22;  Deuteronomy  6:4;  Psalm  90:2;  Matthew  28:19;  John  14:1-14;  1 Peter 1:2;  2 Corinthians  13:14;  1 John  5:7 )


2. ABOUT  THE  FATHER

He  is  all-powerful,  all-knowing,  all-loving,  and all-wise.  He  reigns  with  providential  care  over  the  universe  and  the  flow  of  human  history  goes  according  to  His  purposes  and  plan God  is  Father  in  truth  to  those  who  become  children  of  God  through  faith  in  Jesus  Christ.         

(Genesis  1:1; 2:7;  Exodus  3:14;  6:23;  Matthew  23:9;  Mark  1:9-11;  John  4:24;  Romans  8:14- 15;  Ephesians  4:6;  Colossians  1:15;  1 Timothy  1:17 )


3. ABOUT  JESUS  CHRIST

Jesus  Christ  is  the  Son  of  God.  He  is  co-equal  with  the  Father.  Jesus  lived  a  sinless  human

life  and  offered  Himself  as  the  perfect  sacrifice  for  the  sins  of  all  people  by  dying  on  a  cross. He  arose  from  the  dead  after  three  days  to  demonstrate  His  power  over  sin  and  death.  He ascended  to  Heaven’s  glory  and  will  return  someday  to  earth  to  reign  as  King  of  Kings  and Lord  of  Lords.

(Matthew  1:22, 23;  Isaiah  9:6;  John  1:1-5;  14:10-30;  Hebrews  4:14; 15;  1 Corinthians  15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4;  Acts 1:9-11;  1 Timothy  6:14-15;  Titus 2:13)


4. ABOUT  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT

The  Holy  Spirit  is  co-equal  with  the  Father  and  the  Son  of  God.  He  is  present  in  the  world

to  make  men  aware  of  their  need  for  Jesus  Christ.  He  also  lives  in  every  Christian  from  the moment  of  salvation.  He  provides  the  Christian  with  power  for  living,  understanding  of spiritual  truth,  and  guidance  in  doing  what  is  right.  He  gives  every  believer  a  spiritual  gift when  they  are  saved.  As  Christians,  we  seek  to  live  under  His  control  daily.

(2 Corinthians  3:17;  John  16:7-13;  14:16-17;  Acts 1:8;  1 Corinthians  2:12;  3:16;  Ephesians 1:13;  5:18;  Galatians  5:25)


5. ABOUT  THE  BIBLE

The  Bible  is  God’s  Word  to  us.  Human  authors,  under  the  supernatural  guidance  of  the

Holy  Spirit,  wrote  it.  It  is  the  supreme  source  of  truth  for  Christian  beliefs  and  living. 

Because  God  inspired  it,  it  is  the  truth  without  any  mixture  of  error.

(2 Timothy  3:16;  1:13;  2 Peter  1:20-21;  Psalm  119:105,  160;  12:6;  Proverbs  30:5) 


6. ABOUT  HUMAN  BEINGS

People  are  made  in  the  spiritual  image  of  God,  to  be  like  Him  in  character. People  are  the

supreme  object  of  God’s  creation.  Although  every  person  has  tremendous  potential  for

good,  all  of  us  are  marred  by  an  attitude  of  disobedience  toward  God  called  “sin”.  This attitude  separates  people  from  God and  causes  many  problems  in  our  lives.

( Genesis 1:17;  Psalm  8:3-6;  Isaiah  53:6a;  59:1-2;  Romans 3:23)


7. ABOUT  SALVATION

Salvation  is  God’s  free  gift  to  us, but  we  must  accept  it.  We  can  never  make  up  for  our  sins

by  self-improvement  or  good  works.  Only  by  trusting  in  Jesus  Christ  as  God’s  offer  of

forgiveness  can  anyone  be  saved  from  sin’s  penalty.  When  we  turn  from  our  self-ruled  life

and  turn  to  Jesus  in  faith  we  are  saved.  Eternal  life  begins  the  moment  one  receives  Jesus Christ  into  his  life  by  faith. 

(Romans 5:1;  6:23;  Ephesians  2:8-9;  John  14:6;  1:12;  Titus 3:5;  Galatians  3:26)


8. ABOUT  ETERNAL  SECURITY

Because  God  gives  us  eternal  life  through  Jesus  Christ,  the  true  believer  is  secure  in  that

salvation  for  eternity.  If  you  have  been  genuinely  saved,  you  cannot  “lose” it.  Salvation  is  maintained  by  the  grace  and  power  of  God,  not  by  the  self-effort  of  the  Christian.  It  is  the grace  and  keeping  power  of  God  that  gives  us  this  security.

(John 10:29;  2 Timothy  1:12;  Hebrews  7:25; 10:10, 14;  1 Peter 1:3-5)


9. ABOUT  ETERNITY

People  were  created  to  exist  forever.  We  will  either  exist  eternally  separated  from  God  by  sin  or  eternally  with  God  through  forgiveness  and  salvation.  To  be  eternally  separated  from God  is  Hell.  To  be  eternally  in  union  with  Him  is  eternal  life.  Heaven  and  Hell  are  real places  of  eternal  existence. 

(John 3:16;  2:25;  5:11-13; Romans  6:23;  Revelation  20:15;  Matthew  1:8;  2:44,  46) 


10. ABOUT  CHRISTIAN  UNITY

To  live  in  harmony  with  other  believers  is  clearly  the  teaching  of  the  New  Testament.  It  is the responsibility  of  each  believer  to  endeavor  to  live  in  fellowship  with  each  member  of  the congregation.  It  is  further  the  responsibility  of  each  member  to  bring  all gossiping  and backbiting  to  an  end. 

(John 13:34-35;  Ephesians  4:1-3;  5:1-2;  1 Corinthians  12:13; 13:1-13;  1 John  3:14-18;  4:11; James  3:1-18)
