What We Believe
The Bible is God's complete revelation to man. It was written by men who were divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit. It has God as its author and salvation as its end. It is without error and is absolute truth.
There is only one true God. He manifests His Presence in three persons: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and as the Holy Spirit.
Man was created in the image of God. Because of Sin all people are under condemnation. Only by God's grace through the blood of Jesus can a person be redeemed. Believers are regenerated at the time of surrendering to Jesus Christ as Lord.
Believers are justified by the work of Christ on the cross and are called to a life of sanctification until the day of their final glorification.
The New Testament church is made up of all those who are born again. Ridglea Heights Baptist Church is a local atonomous congregation organized to accomplish God's work in Jackson County, MS and around the world.
All believers are to be baptized by immersion after conversion.
God, in His time and in His way, will bring the world to an end. Christ will return personally and visibly. The dead will be raised. Some to everlasting life and some to everlasting contempt.
All members are to be fully involved in leading individuals to Christ and discipling them.
This body is in agreement with the Baptist Faith and Message.
