Wrenn Memorial Baptist Church is an Independent Baptist Church, holding to the fundamentals of the faith. Below is a listing of our basic beliefs.
- There is One God displayed through three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- God created all things for His glory.
- God made man in His image as the principle point of Creation.
- Man used the free will given to him by God to choose to disobey and sin against God.
- Man’s sin separated him from God forever.
- God made the way for man to return to Him by sending His only Son, Jesus Christ, God in flesh.
- Virgin born, without the taint of original sin, Christ lived a sinless life and died as the perfect sacrifice to pay for our sin.
- Jesus remained dead and in the tomb for three days and nights and was resurrected by the power of God on the third day.
- Jesus appeared first to His disciples and then to over five hundred people at one time, proving the reality of His resurrection.
- Forty days after His resurrection, Jesus ascended to heaven where He now sits at the right hand of God the Father making intercession for those who put their faith in Him.
- Christ will return one day in bodily form as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, to receive His Church unto Himself.
- At His return He will begin a thousand year reign on earth after which time the enemy Satan will be cast into hell as will all those who do not repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ.
- We believe the Holy Bible to be the very words of God “God breathed,” infallible, and complete.
- We believe Scripture teaches that hell is a literal place of fire and torment prepared for the devil and his angels but will also include those who reject Jesus Christ.
There are two ordinances of the Church:
- Baptism by emersion and is to be partaken in only after a person has received Christ as Savior.
- The Lord’s Supper, which is a reminder of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
We are Baptistic in doctrine, holding to the historical Baptist distinctives: 1) The Supreme Authority of the Bible, 2)Believer’s Baptism, 3)Local Church Autonomy, 4)Preaching and Evangelism, 5)Separation of Church and State.
