Mt. Airy Baptist Church is associated with the Southern Baptist Convention.
The SBC is a group of churches that pool their resources to fund and
support the ongoing work of the Gospel.
There is one God: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; who subsist in unity, and also as three separate distinct Persons.
God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace.
…God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit is the divine helper, assistant, counselor and instructor and His work is to reveal Christ, convict of sin, lead to repentance, guide believers, comfort, strengthen, and sanctify the soul.
Salvation is a gift through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. Every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven, while those who die in their sins will spend eternity in hell.
Jesus Christ is God's Son. He was born of a virgin as both God and man, lived a sinless life, died to atone for the sins of human beings, was buried, arose from the grave, ascended into heaven, and will literally return to earth.
Human beings are the special creations of God, made in His image. They fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and all human beings are sinners in need of salvation.
BELIEVERS ACCESS TO GOD
Each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christ’s command.
The church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
