THE DESIRE OF OUR CHURCH
The desire of Landmark Baptist Church is to be:
- A Christ Centered Church: Christ loved the church and gave himself for it. He is to be the center of attraction and the object of our devotion.
- A Bible-Believing Church: We believe the Bible, and we preach and teach without apology that the (King James) Bible is the infallible Word of God.
- A Loving Church: We are taught to love one another sincerely, therefore we stand opposed to pettiness, gossip, and such conduct that unduly disturbs the church body.
- An Old Fashioned Church: We enthusiastically embrace the old time way of worship with lively singing and the kind of preaching that glorifies God and edifies his people.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 2 Timothy 3:16
This church acknowledges the Lord Jesus Christ as its head, and receives the Holy Scriptures (1611 King James Bible) as the only infallible guide in matters of faith, church order and discipline, and is amendable to no other body.
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally and plenarily inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life.
The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning.
We believe the number one responsibility of the local church is to reach the lost world with the good news of Salvation through Jesus Christ. It is this great commission that we strive to pursue, and fulfill for our generation.
