Lynnhaven Baptist Church receives the Scriptures as its authority in matters of faith and practice. Its understanding of Christian truth as contained therein is in essential accord with the beliefs of the Southern Baptist churches as indicated in the Articles of Faith.
Articles of Faith
We affirm the Holy Bible as the Inspired Word of God and the basis of our beliefs. Our Church subscribes to the doctrinal statements of the ‘Baptist faith and Message’ as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention of 2000. We voluntarily band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ; personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind. The ordinances of the church are believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
