Greenbrier Baptist Church was founded in 1943. Existing to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and make His salvation known to those in our community, surrounding area and throughout the world. We support missionaries worldwide.
Through the Holy Scriptures and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we endeavor to equip the saints for service for Jesus Christ, promote fellowship among God’s people of like faith, to put forth every effort to preach the Gospel (the Good News that Jesus Lives) to every creature with the message of God’s grace through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, to teach and disciple Christians to be like Christ and to live holy lives while awaiting the Savior's promised return from Heaven.
What We Believe
GOD - We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
JESUS - We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave and ascended into Heaven.
CHRIST'S RETURN - We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.
HOLY SPIRIT - We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.
BIBLE - We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.
MAN - We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.
SALVATION - We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
ASSURANCE - We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
ETERNITY - We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.
BAPTISM - We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.
CHURCH - We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
PRAYER - We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
GOVERNMENT - We believe in the separation of church and state, but not in separation of God and government. Christians are salt and light in society.
Having been led, as we believe by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of that faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.
We engage therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge of holiness and comfort; to promote it’s prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry. the expense of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spreading of the Gospel through the nations.
We also engage to maintain family and private devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of the world, to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment, to avoid intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and be zealous in our efforts to advance the Kingdom of our Savior.
We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love, to remember each other in prayer, to aid each other in sickness and distress, to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech, to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior, to serve it without delay.
