The mission of Comfort Baptist Church is to glorify God and to build up the body of Christ to meet the world’s needs through worship, proclaiming Christ, missions, fellowship, and evangelism.

What We Believe

-  Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He is both fully God and fully man, and through Jesus, God is actively at work reconciling the world to Himself.  Christ died as a sacrifice for our sins, was buried, rose from the grave on the third day, and will return again in power and glory to judge the world (John 1:1-5;        

  2 Corinthians 5:18-21; Luke 1:26-38; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 22:12-13).

-  Jesus Christ is our only means of obtaining salvation and eternal life.  Salvation from sin is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone (John 3:16; Acts 4:12; Romans 10:13Romans 1:16-18; Galatians 2:20).  

  -The Bible is God’s written revelation of Himself to humanity and is the believer’s authority for faith and practice.  It is divinely-inspired, completely trustworthy, and without error (Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:15-17)

-  There is only one God.  He is perfect in being and infinite in holiness.  He is all-powerful and all-knowing, and He reveals Himself to us in three distinct Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Exodus 3:14-15; Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Chronicles 29:10-13; Ephesians 4:6)

-  The local church is an autonomous body of baptized believers whose function is to continue Jesus’ mission of extending the gospel to the ends of the earth.  The church operates under the authority of Jesus Christ and is free of any external authority or control.  The two primary leadership offices of the church, as recorded in the Scriptures, are the offices of pastor and deacon, both of which are accountable to each other and to Christ as Lord (Matthew 16:15-19; Acts 1:8; Romans 13:1-7; 1 Timothy 3:1-13)

-  The practice of baptism is a prerequisite for believers’ participation in church membership and the observance of the Lord’s Supper.  It is a public act of obedience that symbolizes our death to sin and our resurrection to walk in newness of life.  Baptism by immersion signifies one’s obedience to the Scriptures and to the authority of Jesus Christ over our lives (Matthew 3:13-17; Acts 8:35-39; Romans 6:3-5; Colossians 2:12).

-  Baptized believers can participate in the observance of the Lord’s Supper.  The Lord’s Supper is an act of obedience in which believers memorialize the death of Jesus while anticipating His second coming at the end of history (Mark 14:22-25; 1 Corinthians 10:16, 21; 11:23-29)

-  All believers have the ability to interpret the Scriptures for themselves and to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit for their lives (1 Peter 2:9).

-  Biblical marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a covenant commitment for a lifetime.  It is to model the way that God relates to His people through mutual love and service to one another Children, the fruit of the marriage union, are a blessing and a heritage from the Lord.  Parents are to demonstrate God’s pattern for marriage and teach their children in word and example to make life choices based on biblical truth (Genesis 1:26-28; Deuteronomy 6:6-9; Matthew 5:31-32; Romans 1:18-32; Ephesians 5:22-33, 6: 1-3; 1 Peter 3:1-7).   

-  We are called to be ACTIVE disciples of Jesus Christ, carrying on His mission and work of salvation by sharing the gospel and seeking to make disciples of all nations through missions and evangelism (Matthew 9:37-38, 10:1-10; Matthew 28:16-20)
