The Holy Scriptures, which are the inerrant Word of God, are the basis for our conduct and any statement of faith. This church receives the Scriptures as the sole authority in matters of faith and practice. Smyrna Baptist subscribes wholly to the Baptist Faith and Message (www.sbc.net/bfm2000/default.asp) as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000.
The ordinances of this church are believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper, only to be taken by believers in good standing with a local church.
We believe that Jesus is the only way to the Father.
We thank God for the Holy Spirit who comforts, guides, and empowers us to live the Christian life.
We believe that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit have always been and will always be and are equal in divinity, one in unity, yet distinct in role.
We believe that marriage is a holy union between one man and one woman for a lifetime.
We believe that the husband is be the loving head of his wife and family as Christ is the loving head of the church. Women are to respect and submit to their husbands loving headship as believers submit to the loving headship of Christ. Men and women are completely equal in essence and value, yet distinct in role.
