What We Believe

 

Landmark Independent Baptist Church is:

Independent

We are a truly independent church, as were all the churches of the New Testament. We are not affiliated with any man-made external organization be it a Convention, Association, Fellowship or Mission Board. Our only Head is the Lord Jesus Christ and our only headquarters is in heaven. We fellowship with sister churches of like precious faith and practice, and support missionaries sent forth by the authority of such churches.

Fundamental

We affirm without apology the doctrines frequently identified as the “Fundamentals of the Faith,” which include the deity, virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, and imminent return of Jesus Christ. We reject, however, the prevalent concept that other doctrines clearly taught in God’s Word are “non-essentials.” Christ said:“Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 5:19)

Separated

We believe that Christians should bring forth the fruits of salvation in their lives and that their relationships with Christ should affect every aspect of their lives: the clothes they wear, the language they use, the activities they participate in, the places they frequent, and even the jobs they hold. Christians should seek to separate themselves from evil of every sort.

Historical (Landmark)

Only Scriptural Baptist churches can make a legitimate claim to an unbroken succession back to the time of Christ and the apostles. Christ only built one kind of church and that church is described in detail in the New Testament. The only churches meeting the requirements of that description today are true Baptist churches. Baptist churches have existed in every age since their founding by Christ, though they have not always been known by that name. We do not deny that there are those in other so-called “churches” that have been born again by the grace of God. We do deny, however, that these man-made organizations are true churches of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Sovereign Grace (Strict & Particular, Old School, Calvinistic)

We believe that God loved his elect with an everlasting love and that they are redeemed, quickened, and saved, not by themselves, nor through their own works, but only and wholly by God, of His own free grace and mercy. We believe that God will unfailing call His elect unto Himself and bring them to belief in the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that we are responsible to do our part in ensuring that the gospel is carried throughout the world. We are opposed to cheap or high pressure methods of evangelism, and to the preaching of easy-believism, which neglects the essential of Biblical repentance. We believe that it is impossible for one to accept Christ as Savior while rejecting Him as Lord.

King James Bible Believing (Textus Receptus, Masoretic Texts)

We believe in the verbal plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures. We believe that God has preserved His very words in the transmission of His Word as found in the Greek Textus Receptus and the Hebrew Masoretic Text. We believe that the Bible as we have it today in the King James Version is the Word of God in the English language in a sense that cannot be said of any other translation.
