The members of East Booneville Baptist Church welcome all people who desire to worship here. Let us introduce our church to you through our Mission Statement:
We, East Booneville Baptist Church, are a growing fellowship of believers, united and empowered by the Holy Spirit, committed to glorify God by…
REACHING UP – Expressing our love to God by participating in worship, prayer, and praise of our Lord Jesus Christ as we seek His will.
REACHING IN – Equipping Christians through Bible study and loving fellowship; encouraging one another for spiritual growth and service.
REACHING OUT – Expressing Christ’s love toward others by proclaiming that He is the only way to eternal and abundant life; Serving as Christ served by ministering to their spiritual, emotional, and physical need.
We believe that the entire Bible, all 66 books, are inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings. Through the providence of God, the Word of God has been protected and preserved, and is the only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:11, 89, 105
We believe there is only One true, eternally existent God. He exists in three co-equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The triune God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things, and is worthy of worship and obedience. Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Genesis 1:31; Luke 3:21-22; Matthew 28:18-20; Revelation 4:11
We believe that Jesus Christ is God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, shed His blood on the cross to pay the debt for our sins, was buried, bodily resurrected, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return literally, visibly, and personally in glory and power. John 1:1-3, 14; Matthew 1:18-25; Philippians 2:5-9; Colossians 1:15; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:11
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, co-equal and co-existent with the Father and the Son. He is the One Who convicts us of sin and the Agent of regeneration and sanctification. The Holy Spirit lives within every believer and empowers every believer to live a godly life. John 14:16-19; 16:7-15; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Romans 8:9, 11; Titus 3:5
We believe salvation is a free gift of God’s grace apart from human works, based solely upon Christ’s atoning death, received only through faith in the person and finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection from death. Ephesians 2:8-10; 2 Corinthians 5:21
We believe the church is the body of Christ and family of God. It is made up of saved and baptized believers who regularly join together for worship, fellowship, and ministry. Matthew 16:18; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25
We believe that it is the responsibility and privilege of every Christian to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and to seek to make growing disciples. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8
