A Few Things About Clarks Baptist Church

 

We are what all Baptist Churches used to be ...

. . . before Baptist Churches began to organize into Conventions and Associations to accomplish a united purpose. We as Baptists do co-operate effectively for the common cause of world evangelization through the combined efforts of a Fellowship-relationship of the local congregations. We feel involvement determined by "membership" in a Convention often creates a situation in which the program of the Convention become more important than the local Church that created it, causing the luster and importance of the local Church ministry to be obscured.
 
 
 

All Baptist Churches that are Baptist ...

. . . believe and accept the one statement of Faith of all Baptist that have ever cherished that name. There are churches called Baptist, who practice foot-washing as an ordinance and do not even believe in eternal security, that we do not consider true Baptists. See the Beliefs section.
 
 

As a Baptist Church we will receive and grant letters ...

. . . to all Baptist Churches that adhere to the Baptist Statement of Faith regardless of their Convention or Association affiliation.
 
 

We as Baptist have no quarrel with any Baptist Church ...

. . . that strives to win souls and endorses without apology or reservation the Bible as the infallible Word of God. To all Baptist Churches with such a goal we pray the Lord's richest blessings. If others choose to serve the Lord in another fashioned that is their business, but it is merely our personal feeling that we can better serve the Lord in the following manner.
 
 

We do not choose to become involved with organized conventions or associations because ...

. . . all too often we have discovered that many Colleges and Seminaries sponsored by organized Conventions, while being supported by local churches, have professors who do not believe or teach doctrines that we feel are Biblically true and vital to the Christian Faith.
Such doctrines as the Verbal Inspiration of Scriptures and the Deity and Virgin Birth of our Lord are included in these. We find the local churches make their existence a reality by financial support, yet their voice and convictions do not carry enough influence to correct the errors that arise in these institutions.
 
 

If truly Baptist-tic, a Church will have nothing, but God's Word, as its doctrine making it a Bible based Baptist Church.
