What We Believe

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

Core Values

Expository Preaching

We are committed to expositionally preaching the whole counsel of God. You will find that the messages of our sermons are dictated by the meaning of the Text of Scripture. We believe that the Spirit of God uses the faithful preaching of the Word of God to build up the people of God.
"For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart."
- Hebrews 4:12

Christ-exalting worship

We desire Christ to be exalted in our worship through song. We believe it is best that we sing to the Lord together as a congregation (Eph. 5:19). The dividing line is not whether a song is "traditional" or "contemporary," but whether or not it exalts Christ.
"Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!"
- Psalm 95:1

Intentional Community

We believe that it is right for God's people live in intentional covenant community with one another. To worship, serve, and pursue holiness in the context of the local church is Christ's desire for His people.
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."
- Hebrews 10:24-25

Living on Mission

We desire that Christ be made known to all peoples everywhere. Therefore, we equip BBC members to be bold witnesses of Christ to their neighbors, and we raise up and send missionaries to carry the gospel of Christ to the nations.
"For the earth will be filled
    with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord
    as the waters cover the sea."
- Habakkuk 2:14

Core Beliefs

God

There is one eternally existing God who subsists in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Revelation

God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.

Mankind

Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.

Salvation

Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Resurrection

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
