What We Believe
Lake Ridge Baptist Church believes the Bible is the divinely inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of the living God and we hold the Bible as our final authority on all matters, including those relating to the faith and practice of both the Church and the members as individuals. We use only the Authorized King James Bible.
We believe in the literal Genesis account of creation, a universal flood, the triune God, the deity of Jesus Christ, a literal Hell, salvation exclusively by grace through faith in Christ Jesus apart from works, the eternal security of the believer, the priesthood of every believer, love as the motive for all true worship and service, holiness and godly separation by all believers, baptism by immersion of believers only, the local and visible Church, closed communion, and the literal and pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ.
We reject Darwinist evolution, secular humanism, false doctrine of salvation by works (including the false doctrine of salvation by ‘faith and works’), the Charismatic movement, all forms of universal Church theology, Calvinistic theology, and we believe any Church to be illegitimate that was founded by anyone other than Jesus Christ during His personal ministry
