So you may be wondering what our mission is and what we believe as a church.
 
 
Edinburgh Separate Baptist Church
Mission Statement
 
“Our mission is to see people saved from eternal destruction and receive an eternal home in Heaven.  We strive as a church to minister to our flock and to equip them to venture out into the field of God’s service to make disciples of others.  We intend for our church to be a beacon of comfort, hope and light to the community.  The Edinburgh Separate Baptist Church exists to benefit our congregation, our community, and the Kingdom of God.”
 
 
 
Church Covenant
 

Article 1

We believe that any person coming into fellowship with our church must be baptized by immersion, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

We believe that any person coming into this body should promise to stand by the church with his prayers, his presence, and his support

Article 2

We believe in the sanctity of the first day of the week or Lord’s Day, which ought to be spent in public or private worship of God, and that we should abstain from worldly concerns except in cases of necessity or mercy.

Article 3

We further resolve that the alter (a moveable bench which sets in front of the rostrum) be left there in definitely.

We further resolve that there be no selling or buying in the church.

There is to be no evangelist called until he is approved by the body.

Any teacher teaching any doctrine other than our doctrine should be reported to the presiding officer.

 

We recommend, if this covenant is accepted, that it takes three-fourth majority of the body to amend it after a committee of five is appointed and have approved the Amendments

 
 
Articles of Doctrine

 

Our Articles of Doctrine show what we believe and why we believe that.  They are the foundation of our church and help to guide us in our walk with God.
 
1. We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the infallible Word of God and the only safe rule of faith and practice, using the King James version of the Holy Bible. * 
II Timothy 3:16-17, I Corinthians 10:11, II Peter 1:20-21  
 
2. That there is in the God-Head three divine personages; Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
I John 5:7, Matthew 28:19, Matthew 3:15-17
 
3. That man is in a fallen state before God, and is unable to liberate himself by any ability we possess by nature.
Isaiah 63:1-5, I Corinthians 15:22, Psalms 51:5, John 14:6
 
4. That salvation, regeneration, justification, sanctification and redemption are through faith in the life, death, resurrection, ascension, and intercession of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
John 17:19, Acts 13:39, Titus 2:14, Romans 3:24-26
 
5.  We believe that he who endures to the end the same shall be saved.
Revelation 2:10, Matthew 24:13
 
6. That the joys of the righteous and punishment of the wicked will be eternal.
Matthew 25:46, Daniel 12:2, Romans 5:21
 
7. We believe that baptism, the Lord’s Supper and feet washing are ordinances of Jesus Christ, appointed in the Church, and none but true believers are proper subjects, and the only proper mode of baptism is immersion of believers.
Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:41, John 13:14, I Peter 3:21, Matthew 3:14, I Corinthians 11:23-26
 
8. We believe in the sanctity of the first day of the week or Lord’s Day, which ought to be observed and spent in public or private worship of God and that we should abstain from worldly concerns except in cases of necessity or mercy.
Acts 20:7, I Corinthians 16:2
 
9. We believe in the resurrection of the body, both of the just and the unjust, but every man to his own order. Those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of damnation, and that God hath appointed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness by Jesus Christ.
I Thessalonians 4:16, I Corinthians   15, John 5:28-29
 
10. That it is our duty to be tender and affectionate one to another and in honor preferring one another, to study the happiness of God’s people in general and do all we can to support, promote, and spread the Gospel.
Romans 12:10, Luke 14:23
 
11. We believe that Jesus Christ, by the grace of God, tasted death for everyone, and that all may partake of his Divine benefits through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Also, infants and those who have never developed the mental ability to receive regeneration, are included in the covenant of God’ grace.
John 3:15-17, Acts 4:12
