OUR DOCTRICAL POSITION

STAFF

1.   We   believe   in   the   divine   inspiration   and   authority   of   the   Scriptures.   By   this   is   meant   a   miraculous   guidance   of   the   Holy   Spirit   in   their   original   writing,   extending to   all   parts   of   the   Scriptures   equally,   applying   even   to   the   choice   of   words,   so   that   the   result   is   the   very   Word   of   God,   the   only   infallible   rule   of   faith   and   practice. Moreover,   it   is   our   conviction   that   God   has   exercised   such   singular   care   and   providence   through   the   ages   in   preserving   the   written   Word,   that   the   Scriptures   as   we now have them are in every essential particular as originally given and contain all things necessary to salvation. 2.   We   believe   in   one   God   revealed   as   eternally   existing   in   three   equal   persons,   the   Father,   the   Son   and   the   Holy   Spirit.   We   believe   in   the   deity   of   the   Lord   Jesus Christ. We believe in the Holy Spirit as a divine Person, a personality distinct from the Father and the Son. 3.   We   believe   that   God   created   an   innumerable   host   of   angels,   some   of   whom   followed   the   lead   of   Lucifer,   now   called   Satan,   in   rebelling   against   God,   thereby bringing   sin   into   the   universe.   We   believe   in   Satan's   complete   defeat   by   the   Lord   Jesus   Christ   through   His   precious   shed   blood   on   the   cross   and   His   glorious resurrection from the grave. 4.   We   believe   that   man   was   created   in   the   image   of   God,   that   he   sinned   and   thereby   incurred   not   only   physical   death   but   also   that   spiritual   death   which   is separation   from   God;   and   that   all   human   beings   are   born   with   a   sinful   nature   and,   in   the   case   of   those   who   reach   moral   responsibility,   become   sinners   in   thought, word and deed. And with such a nature, they are incapable of producing anything acceptable to God. 5.   We   believe   that   Jesus   Christ   was   begotten   of   the   Holy   Spirit,   and   born   of   the   Virgin   Mary,   and   is   true   God   and   true   man.   We   believe   that   He   died   for   the   sins   of men   as   representative   and   substitutionary   sacrifice   and   that   His   death   was   a   sufficient   expiation   for   the   guilt   of   all   men.   We   believe   in   the   resurrection   of   the crucified   body   of   our   Lord,   in   His   ascension   into   heaven   and   in   His   present   life   there   for   us   as   High   Priest   and   Advocate.   We   believe   that   Jesus   is   coming   again   to gather His faithful followers into the place He has prepared for them. 6.   We   believe   that   men   are   justified   by   grace   through   faith,   on   the   ground   of   the   shed   blood   of   Christ,   and   that   all   who   receive   the   Lord   Jesus   Christ   as   Savior   are born again of the Holy Spirit. 7. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost. 8.   We   believe   that   it   is   the   supreme   responsibility   of   believers   to   testify   to   the   saving   power   of   Christ's   gospel,   both   personally   and   by   supporting   missions,   at home and to the uttermost part of the earth. 9.   We   believe   that   it   is   the   duty   of   each   believer   to   live   a   holy   life   unto   God,   keeping   himself   unspotted   from   the   world,   and   that   it   is   God's   intention   that   this   shall be   accomplished   in   the   believer's   life   by   his   constant   dependence   on   the   divine   enablement   of   the   indwelling   Holy   Spirit.   We   believe   that   this   experience   of deliverance   from   sin   and   empowerment   for   service   is   designated   in   the   Scriptures   as   the   filling   with   the   Spirit   rather   than   His   baptism.   Thus   the   baptism   with   the Spirit is not an experience to be sought subsequent to regeneration, but is already an accomplished fact once born again. 10.   We   believe   that   God   in   the   Scriptures   has   progressively   revealed   Himself   through   successive   ages,   during   each   of   which   man   has   been   tested   in   respect   of obedience   to   specific   revelation   of   the   will   of   God;   and   we   believe   further   that   this   dispensational   viewpoint   provides   the   key   to   the   correct   interpretation   of   the plan   and   purpose   of   God   in   the   world,   past,   present   and   future,   as   it   relates   to   the   Church,   to   Israel   and   to   the   nations.   We   believe   in   the   actual   offering   of   a kingdom   to   the   Jews   by   Christ   at   His   first   coming,   and   His   postponement   thereof   as   a   result   of   the   rejection   by   the   nation   of   Israel.   We   believe   that   Israel,   as   well   as the Church and nations, is included in the future aspect of God's program. 11.   We   believe   that   the   Church   of   Jesus   Christ:   (A)   Had   its   historical   beginning   at   Pentecost;   is   composed   solely   of   believers;   is   the   Body   and   Bride   of   our   Lord;   is distinct   from   Israel;   and   that   it   will   be   completed   as   the   Gospel   is   made   known   to   the   entire   world.   (B)   The   primary   usage   of   the   term   "church"   refers   to   a   local assembly   of   believers,   congregating   and   structured   to   carry   out   the   Great   Commision   of   evangelism,   baptism,   and   discipleship   of   converts.   The   local   church   is   led by   a   Pastor,   elected   byits   members.   Requirements   for   membership   in   the   local   church   are   professed   faith   in   Jesus   Christ   alone   as   Saviour,   believers   baptism   by emersion, and a life in pursuit of the directives laid down in the New Testament.   12.   We   believe   that   at   any   moment   the   Rapture   of   the   saved   may   occur,   when   "the   Lord   Himself   shall   descend   from   heaven"   to   catch   up   His   people   to   meet   Him "in the air" and deliver them from the period of judgment on earth designated in Scripture as the 70th Week of Daniel. 13.   We   believe   in   the   personal,   bodily   and   pre-millenial   return   of   our   Lord   Jesus   Christ   after   the   70th   week   of   Daniel.   He   will   then   setup   His   kingdom   upon   the earth for His thousand year reign, after which He will deliver the kingdom to the Father, that the Godhead may be all in all.
“Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17
The following is a statement of what Woodlawn Baptist Church believes. This is what the world's most respected Bible scholars understand to be God's desire for His children to know and understand about Him. It does not water down the Word, it makes no compromises.  It is not the easy path, it is not politically correct, it is not tolerant of that which God despises. It is simply a deliberate attempt to follow the clearest possible, common-sense interpretation of God's Word, the Holy Bible.
