• We believe the Scriptures 
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ and that God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • We believe that salvation is found in Christ alone
  • We believe salvation is by grace through faith
  • We believe it is necessary for us to share our faith and do what we can to reach those who don’t yet know Jesus

For most of us at ANBC it is not a major part of our identity, but we are a Baptist church, and in particular a Southern Baptist church.  Among beliefs held by Baptists are:

  • Belief in the eternal security of the believer
  • Belief in Scripture as the authority for faith and conduct
  • Belief in the priesthood of the believer
  • Belief in the autonomy of the local church

The Baptist Faith and Message has been adopted by Southern Baptists as a statement of faith.  We find it to be an acceptable summary of our beliefs, but members do not need to subscribe to every detail of it.
