Without any reservation, Soldier Creek endorses the 2000 Baptist Faith & Message as our expanded confessional statement of faith. (See the link at the bottom of the page for the BFM2000.) As a theologically conservative Southern Baptist church, we are committed to the inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility of God’s Word, the Bible. At Soldier Creek we take the authority and accurate teaching of God’s Word very seriously and we seek to be a community of disciple-makers who ascribe to sound biblical doctrine, flowing over into our practice. We believe all Christ-followers should be biblically equipped to give an answer to the hope & faith they have in the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

Soldier Creek’s First-Order Nonnegotiable Doctrines:
1) The Inspiration, Inerrancy, and Infallibility of the Scriptures
2) The Triunity of the Godhead as Father, Son, & Holy Spirit (only the Trinity is Uncreated)
-The Father is God, the Son is God, the Holy Spirit is God (One God, Three Persons)
3) The Incarnation: the Son took on flesh (Hypostatic Union: fully God/fully Man)
-The Virgin Birth (born of a virgin, Jesus did not inherit a sin nature and He remained sinless)
4) The Supremacy of the Gospel as the most important message to all mankind
-All of humanity is sinful (with the exception of the Godman Jesus)

-The death of Jesus on the Cross as the exclusive atonement & remedy for sin (Jesus died for all)
-Sinful man is saved by grace through faith in Christ alone (Justification)
-Through the the Holy Spirit the believer is made into an image of Christ (Sanctification)
-Eternal security of the believer (always saved if saved: salvation cannot be earned nor lost)
5) The bodily resurrection of Jesus
6) The bodily return of Jesus
-All Christ-followers will receive resurrected bodies when Jesus returns (Glorification)
7) The eventual overthrow of Satan & evil at the end of the age with Jesus and His followers reigning
