Statement of Faith

Beaver Dam Baptist Church is a congregation committed to Biblical truths.

We seek to  minister to those around us by demonstrating Christ’s compassion for the world,

being a welcoming Christian community.

We are Christ-centered in our doctrine and Bible-based in our teaching. 


We believe in one God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

(Matthew 5:16, 45; James 1:17; John 1:1; 14:9; Genesis 1:2; John 4:24; 2 Peter 1:21) 


We believe in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, our one and only Savior, 

(John 1:14; 1 John 4:9; John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:18) 


We believe Jesus died, was buried, and rose again bodily  from the dead on the third day. 

(Luke 23:44 - 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8) 


We believe the Bible teaches that salvation and the forgiveness of sins are achieved 

only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. 

(Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7) 


We believe the Bible teaches that one receives God's grace by putting faith in Christ, 

repenting of sin and confessing Christ. 

(Romans 5:1-2; Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19; 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9; Matthew 10:32;

Philippians 2:11; Acts  2:38; Romans 6:1-7; 1 Peter 3:21) 


We believe that the ordinance of baptism is an act of obedience symbolizing the 

believer’s faith in a crucified, buried and risen Lord.

We believe the Lord’s Supper is  a symbolic act, commemorating the sacrificial death of the Lord Jesus Christ

(Matthew  3:13-17; Luke 22:14-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26). 


We believe every human is competent to relate to God individually. However, one  must recognize that the church forms the basic biblically-mandated context for  Christian living.

(Acts 2:42-47; Heb. 10:25; 1 Tim. 3:14-15) 

We believe the Old and New Testament scripture were written as God’s Holy Word by men divinely inspired.

The Bible alone is authoritative.

(2 Timothy 3:16) 


We believe the Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit 

and exists to evangelize the lost and edify the saved.

(Ephesians 4:1-16) 


We accept that beyond such foundational elements of our faith there is room for differing 

interpretations of Biblical truth. Our emphasis on Spirit-led Bible study leads us into deeper 

understanding of the nature of God and His plan and purpose for each of us.
