BMDMI Statement of Faith

The Inspiration of the Bible:

We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God. (Jer. 30:2; II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20,21)

The Person of God:

We believe God is supreme in His person, eternal in His being, absolute in His attributes, glorious in His perfection. We believe in the Trinity. (Gen. 1:1; Isa. 6:1; Deut. 6:4; Matt. 6:9)

The Person of Jesus Christ:

We believe in the virgin birth of Christ, His deity and sinless life, His vicarious death, His bodily resurrection, and in His personal, pre-millennial return. (Matt. 1:18,20; II Cor. 5:21; I Cor. 15:3-4)

The Person of the Holy Spirit:

We believe the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Godhead. We believe that He executes the plan of God for our conviction and salvation. From the time of conversion, the Holy Spirit resides in the body of the believer and empowers him/her for His service. (Col. 2:9; Matt. 10:16; John 14:16)

The Fall of Man:

We believe that man was created in the image of God and by choice fell into sin and death. Hence, every person is sinful and under condemnation to eternal judgment. (Gen. 2:16; Gen. 3:1,7; Rom. 5:6,11)

The Salvation of Sinners:

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace, and that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation. (Eph. 2:8,9; John 3:16; John 5:24; John 3:36)

The Freeness of Salvation:

We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free by the Gospel to all who repent of their sins and accept Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner but his own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the Gospel. (Rom. 3:24; Eph. 2:8,10; Titus 3:5)

The Security of the Believer:

We believe that those who receive Jesus Christ as their Savior are eternally secure. Our security rests on the finished work of Jesus Christ. As a result, we have assurance. (II Tim. 1:12; Rom. 8:35,39)

The Doctrine of the Church:

We believe that the visible church is a congregation of baptized believers, practicing New Testament principles, believing its doctrine, observing its ordinances, and exercising its autonomy. (Matt. 16:18; Eph. 3:10,11; I Cor. 3:11)

The Doctrine of Heaven and Hell:

We believe in the eternal blessedness of the saved in Heaven and the eternal punishment of the lost in Hell. (I Thes. 4:13; John 14:1,6; Matt. 25:31,46; Rev. 20:10,15)
