Doctrinal

Statement

Pocatello Baptist Church is a loving and friendly congregation of believers in Jesus Christ. We strive to love the Lord and each other more as we grow in Christ. We are an independent church, not connected with any denomination or conference of churches.

 

We are a fundamental church, accepting as true those doctrines that are considered fundamental to a true Christian faith.

1.The inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture

2.The deity of Jesus Christ

3.The blood atonement of Jesus Christ

4.Salvation by grace alone through faith alone

5.The future bodily return of Jesus Christ

6.Separation from heretical doctrine

We are a Baptist church, accepting the doctrines that are historically connected with those who are called Baptists.

1.Bible as our final authority

2.Autonomy of the local church

3.Priesthood of the believer

4.Two ordinances — Baptism and Lord’s Supper

5.Individual soul liberty

6.Saved church membership

7.Two offices — Pastor and Deacon

8.Separation of Church and State

We hold to the belief that the Old and New Testaments are verbally and plenarily inspired of God and without error in the original writings; that the Bile is reliable in science, history, and every other matter it discusses.; and that the Bible is of supreme and final authority in faith and practice. 

We hold to the belief that God is triune, externally existing in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit- co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections.

We emphasize an expository, thoughtful preaching of God’s Word that glorifies God, and draws the saved believer into closer communion with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
