What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about
God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Our Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Liberty Baptist Church - GBC based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


God always has been and always will be. He created and sustains life. He has no equal. He exists in three distinct and equal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. This reality is often referred to as the Trinity.
Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14


Jesus and God are one. Jesus has always been, and yet he lived on earth during the first century A.D. Throughout his earthly life, he was completely God and completely human. After living a perfect, sinless life, Jesus died on a cross, offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for every human being who has ever lived. He remained in the grave for three days and then defeated sin and death by rising from the grave. He ascended to heaven and will return to earth one day to reign as King.
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; Hebrews 1:3, 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 3:17; Romans 1:3-4

The Holy Spirit

The Spirit is an equal part of the Trinity. He works in the world to make all people understand their need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives inside all followers of Jesus from the moment they begin to follow Him. The Spirit gives followers of Jesus the strength to live lives that please God.
John 14:16-17, 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; 2 Corinthians 3:17; Ephesians 1:13-14


Man is the pinnacle of God’s creation and the only being on the earth made in God’s image. Every person, although endowed with the image of God, inherited a disobedient heart from Adam, the very first man. This disobedience, referred to in the Bible as sin, separates man from his Creator. Apart from Jesus, man is spiritually dead.

Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6, 59:2; Romans 3:23, 5:12-21

The Bible

The Bible reveals God’s character, his plans, and his purpose for our lives. Each book was written by ordinary men who wrote under the direction of the Holy Spirit. It can be completely trusted and is the final source of authority in our lives.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:30-21; Psalm 119:11, 105; Proverbs 30:5-6

The Church

The Church is the body of Christ in the world today. The members of the Church are those who trust by faith the finished work of Christ. The mission of the church is to make disciples. Liberty Baptist personalizes this concept: Our Mission is to lead the families of the surrounding counties to become growing followers of Jesus.

Acts 2:41-47; Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Corinthians 12; James 5:13-16; 1 Peter 4:10


Baptism is the immersion of a believer into water. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. It illustrates the believer's death to sin, the burial of his life, and the resurrection into newness of life in Christ Jesus.

John 1:29-34; Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:3-4
