OUR BELIEFS
At Truett, we subscribe to the
Baptist Faith & Message
We believe the Bible to be God’s revelation of Himself to man, and that it is divinely inspired, without error and totally true and trustworthy, and thus we are committed to preaching and teaching its matter diligently and with fervor.
 
 
We believe there is only one true and holy God and that He exists in three Persons–God the Father, Son & Holy Spirit–and that each exists as a distinct Person with a distinct Purpose.  As Creator and Sustainer and Source of all truth, God is worthy of all our worship and praise.
 
 
We believe that Jesus Christ is God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin; that He lived a sinless life and thus became our substitutionary atonement and that it is by and through Christ Jesus that humankind is saved from separation from God now and throughout eternity.
 
 
We, too, believe that the Holy Spirit is God, a convictor of sin and the chief agent of regeneration and sanctification.  He indwells believers and empower them to live a godly life.  He bestows upon believers spiritual gifts to be used to the glory of God and Christ in the church. 
 
 
We believe that man was made in God’s image but fell from Grace through sin.  Yet, God in His great love for His Creation, from the before the beginning of time worked through His Son, Jesus Christ, to reconcile a sinful world to Himself.  We further believe that men, women, boys and girls are saved by God’s grace through faith, and not “good” works they might do.
 
We believe, through God’s saving Grace, that the believer is secure in salvation forever.
 
We believe the church to be the body of Christ and the family of God.  It is comprised of saved and baptized believers, regularly assembling on the Lord’s Day for worship and fellowship, discipleship and ministry.
 
We believe, in being created in God’s image, that our souls exist eternally.  In that eternity the soul may be one in Christ and God in bliss, or separated forever from Christ and God with no hope and in torment.  We therefore believe in a heaven and a hell.
 
We believe in two ordinances (that is, visual reminders of Christ and His work):  baptism and the Lord’s Supper.  Though neither are necessary for salvation, each are practiced and observed in obedience to the commands and in remembrance to our Lord Jesus Christ.
