For the preaching
of the cross
is to them that perish
but unto us
which are saved
it is the
power of God.
I Corinthians 1:18 (KJV)
What does San Antonio Community Church believe?
We are not a creedal congregation, meaning that we do not subscribe to or adhere to any set document of faith. The Bible is our only creed and our ultimate authority and test; the Baptist Faith and Message is our statement of faith.
While we are deeply appreciative of our Southern Baptist heritage, we choose to avoid serving tradition at the expense of what is Biblical, effective and efficient for the glorification of God and the edification of believers.
We believe that salvation is only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, Who died on the cross in our place as an atoning sacrifice for our sin.
We believe in the virgin birth. We believe in a literal resurrection. We believe in the literal and imminent return of Jesus to earth.
We believe in the authority and inerrancy of Scripture and its power to provide infallible direction and purpose for our lives. We believe that the Scripture is without inherent contradiction, and that open and faithful scholarship is mandated for understanding its context and the application of its principles to our lives, both corporately and privately.
We practice baptism by immersion as an outward expression of the inward decision to place our faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that Christians should develop in their faith and be committed to a life of personal devotion to God. Such commitment is expressed through:
- corporate and private worship
- participation in small group Bible study
- meaningful service in a ministry
- giving financially in a God-honoring manner
- intentionally introducing others to a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
