What We Believe
The "Baptist Faith and Message" adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention, May 9, 1963 gives an overview of some of the seminal beliefs of the convention. These statements are the Articles of Faith that help to define who we are and direct our activities in this age.
These articles are in no case an all-inclusive statement of our beliefs, but are some of the basic tenets that help you better understand the doctrine of our convention.
Thank you for taking the time to read and study carefully each of the statements. The scripture references included with each paragraph are vital for understanding the written text present in the document. We encourage you to look up those references in the Bible before you move from one article to another.
