Westbury Baptist Church's Statement of Faith

  1. We believe in one God who exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  God created the universe, is all-powerful, all-knowing and ever-present.

  2. We believe that Jesus of Nazareth was the incarnation of God, born of a virgin, who lived a sinless life, died an atoning death for our sins, and rose again the third day. 

  3. We believe the Holy Spirit is the spirit of God Himself, who indwells, empowers, transforms and encourages all those who believe in Jesus as Lord.

  4. We believe that the Bible is the very word of God, divinely inspired.  It serves as our ultimate authority; it enables us to know God and His will for our lives, both individually and corporately. 

  5. We believe that the fundamental problem in our own lives and in the world at large is human sin.  Jesus Christ came into the world to rescue us from our sin and the eternal separation from God that sin produces.  By dying for our sins, He opened a door so that all who repent of their sins and believe in His grace will be saved. 

  6. We believe a church is not a building or an institution, but a group of Christ-followers who worship Him together, love each other, and seek to show His love to our community and world.  We believe that Jesus left us two ordinances to follow:

    • Baptism by immersion symbolizes the new life we have through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.  At WBC, we baptize believers when they profess faith in Jesus.

    • The Lord’s Supper is a re-enactment of the Passover meal Jesus ate with His disciples the night before His crucifixion.  We celebrate the Lord’s Supper four times per year.  It reminds us of His death for us, and gives us a foretaste of His return.
