Our Beliefs

As a ministry of Gardendale Baptist Tabernacle, we stand strong on the Word of God.  In fact, the Bible is our foundation.  From God's Word we find our purpose and our mission, not only in Christian education, but also in our personal lives.  Our desire is to pass on to the next generation a love and passion for God's Word, a desire to memorize the Scriptures, and an ability to share it with a world that needs God.



 · We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the verbally inspired Word of God; the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. It is inerrant and is our only rule in matters of faith and practice.


· We believe in the Creation account, not evolution; that man was created by the direct act of God and in the image of God.


· We believe that Adam and Eve, in yielding to the temptation of Satan, became fallen beings, and that all men are born in sin and in need of a Savior.


· We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless, perfect life, His substitutionary and atoning death on the cross by the shedding of His blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal, future return.


· We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture; that He arose from the dead in His glorified body, ascended into heaven, and that, as our great Advocate, He ever lives to make intercession for us. All who believe on His name are justified on the basis of grace through faith in Him, plus nothing and minus nothing. The believer is therefore eternally secure, kept by the power of God through the atoning blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
