Doctrinal Statement

TBBCS may accept students from churches and assemblies that are not Independent Baptist in name, but we will not compromise or change our teaching to accommodate those who disagree with truths foundational to a Biblical faith in Christ.  Such students may attend in order to receive the excellent Bible-related training offered here, but they will not be allowed to adversely influence other students in any way.  The Administration may summarily terminate the enrollment of any student deemed to exert an undesirable theological or philosophical influence.  The following articles of our faith cannot be challenged:

We believe that the Bible, the Scriptures, comprised of both the Old and the New Testaments, is the Word of God, that it was verbally and plenarily inspired, and that it is the only rule for faith and practice.

We believe in one God who exists as a tri-unity of three Persons-- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, all one in essence, inseparable, but discernible in their functions and activities.

We believe that Jesus Christ, God the Son, came in the flesh as the virgin-born son of Mary; that He lived a perfect, sinless life; that He died, was buried, and rose bodily from the dead; and that He ascended back into heaven exactly in accord with the Scriptures.

We believe that salvation, the new birth, is received only by believing in the sacrificial work accomplished by Jesus Christ on the cross.  This salvation is by grace, through faith alone, to whomever will receive it, without any admixture of meritorious works, and thus renders the believer eternally secure.

We believe in the complete historicity of the Genesis account of origins, including that, in six literal days of creation, God brought into existence all that exists.

We believe in the imminent return of Christ to remove all believers from the earth prior to the onset of the tribulation and in His return at the end of the tribulation to reign on earth for a thousand years, a reign that will then continue through eternity.

We believe in the resurrection of all men, the saved to everlasting blessedness in the presence of God, and the lost to everlasting punishment in a literal lake of fire.  The saved will be judged by Christ for their stewardship after salvation,  and the lost will be judged at the Great White Throne but with no hope of salvation.

We believe that God designed the work of the Great Commission to be done through believers who have individually chosen to identify with Christ in baptism and who have voluntarily joined with other believers into autonomous, local assemblies where the activities of each individual and of the whole purposely reflect the design of God for human life.

We believe that God preserved His revelation of Himself from the time it was given to man, and that He preserved this revelation in the Hebrew Masoretic Text for the Old Testament and the Greek Textus Receptus for the New Testament.  The King James Bible is an excellent translation of these original language texts and is inspired to the degree that it accurately represents God's intended meaning.
