What We Believe

We Believe in Change

As a Bible-based Christian church, Green Meadows Baptist Church holds to the teachings found in the Bible. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and the greatest authority in our lives. We believe in one eternal God, who exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God’s son, Jesus, was born of a virgin, fully God and man, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and rose from the dead. We believe He is now seated at the right hand of God until He returns to make everything new. We believe that because of Jesus, we can be forgiven for everything we’ve done wrong and be given the gift of eternal life. To do this, a person must believe that Jesus is God’s son, confess him as Lord of your life, and be baptized. Then, a person is given the gift of the Holy Spirit, who actively works to allow believers to live a Godly life.

“…where sin increased, grace abounded all the more”
Romans 5:20

GOD

We believe in one God, who unconditionally loves all people. He eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity is fully and completely God, sharing all of the divine attributes in a perfect loving community.

Matthew 28:19  // John 1:14 //  Acts 5:3-4 //

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible is inspired by God and completely true and authoritative in all areas of faith and practice. The Bible is a source of strength, direction, and wisdom for those who apply it to their lives.

John 17:17  // 2 Timothy 3:16  // 2 Peter 1:20-21

JESUS CHRIST

We believe Jesus Christ is the perfect revelation of God to humankind. He is fully God and fully man. He lived a sinless life and died on a cross as a substitute for humanity’s sin. His resurrection from the grave affirms His victory over sin and death.

Matthew 1:18-2:12  // John 1:1-18 //  Romans 3:21-26

HUMANITY

We believe God created humans in His perfect image. Because of its rebellion, however, all humanity is alienated from God. As a result, humans are incapable of having a relationship with God based solely upon their effort.

Genesis 1:26  // Romans 3:10-18  // Ephesians 2:1-3

SALVATION

We believe that all who trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will receive the forgiveness of sins and the free gift of eternal life. True peace and fulfillment in life is only found in a relationship with Jesus.

John 3:16, 6:35-40, 10:27-30  // Romans 8:28-39

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who indwells the followers of Jesus at the point of salvation. He also equips them with spiritual gifts for serving others, and guides them in the journey to become like Christ as they relinquish control of their lives.

John 14:15-26  // Acts 2:1-33  // Romans 8:1-27
