Our Beliefs

Cromer Baptist Church is a Biblical evangelical church. This means that we accept the full and final authority of the Bible as the basis for all we believe.

In particular, we believe that in the Bible God has revealed everything we need to know about God and our relationship with Him. So, in accordance with the Bible we believe that:

1. The inspiration, inerrancy and infallibility of God's word, the Bible, as originally given. The
    Holy Scripture is both vital and clear, and all Christians must submit to its supreme
    authority and sufficiency, both individually and corporately, in every matter of belief and

2. The existence of one eternal and immutable God, the Holy Trinity, Creator and Lord of the
     universe who, in the unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – three Persons who
     are the same in substance, and equal in power and glory – governs all things according to
     his will, and is accomplishing his purposes in the world and in the church.

3. The inherent value of all human beings, made by God in his own image, and their
     sinfulness and guilt since the fall of Adam. This has rendered them subject to God's wrath
     and condemnation, and has resulted in their alienation from him, from one another and
     from his creation.

4.  The essential, absolute and eternal deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; his conception by Mary
     of the Holy Spirit; his virgin birth; his real but sinless humanity; his voluntary humiliation
     and obedience, culminating in his death as a sacrifice for sin; his bodily resurrection from
     the dead on the third day; his ascension into heaven; his continuing ministry as Prophet,
     Priest and King; and his coming again in power and glory.

5.  Salvation from the guilt, penalty and all consequences of sin solely through the work of
     Jesus Christ – his perfect obedience, penal substitutionary death, bodily resurrection and
     exaltation as Lord. He alone is truly God and truly man, and therefore the only mediator
     between God and humanity, uniquely able to save completely those who come to God
     through him. There is salvation through no other person, creed, process or power.

6.  The justification of sinners entirely through the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to       them and of the guilt and penalty of their sin to him. It is appropriated by grace alone       through faith alone in Christ alone.

7.  The necessity and sufficiency of the work of the Holy Spirit for the individual's new birth to
     repentance and faith, union with Christ and growth to maturity, and for the church's
     continuous renewal in truth, unity, wisdom, faith, holiness, love, power and mission.

8.  The universal church, the body of which Christ is the head, to which all God's people
     belong. Its existence reveals God's ultimate purpose to bring everything together under
     Christ. It is made visible both in local congregations and in the wider communion of those
     who profess the true faith. It comprises a people called to declare the praise of the God
     who saved them, to contend for the faith once delivered to the saints, and to proclaim      the gracious offer of salvation to those who are lost.

9.  The unity of the body of Christ, as expressed within and between local churches by      mutual love, care, encouragement and corporate action. True fellowship between      churches exists only where they are faithful to the apostolic gospel.

10. The personal and visible return in glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, in order to raise the      dead and bring salvation and judgement to final completion. He will grant eternal life to      those who have believed the gospel, and consign those who have not to everlasting      punishment in hell. God will then fully establish his kingdom in new heavens and a new     earth, from which evil and evildoers, suffering and death will be excluded, and in which he     will be glorified forever.
