What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The mission of Spring Creek is to celebrate and live God’s grace.
Spring Creek will be a Baptist community of faith and a place of grace, celebrating the good news of God’s love and giving ourselves to others in ministry and mission in the name of Christ.
We believe in the triune God as revealed in Scripture, as conveyed in heritage, and as made real in experience.

Spring Creek Baptist Church is an independent and autonomous body.  We may voluntarily choose to affiliate and/or be involved with various Baptist bodies and other entities in order to fulfill our mission.

We enthusiastically affirm the Four Fragile Freedoms that summarize our shared values as Christians and Baptists. Those freedoms are:

Bible Freedom
“Bible freedom is the historic Baptist affirmation that the Bible, under the Lordship of Christ, must be central in the life of the individual and church and that Christians, with the best and most scholarly tools of inquiry, are both free and obligated to study and obey the scriptures.”

Soul Freedom
“Soul freedom is the historic Baptist affirmation of the inalienable right and responsibility of every person to deal with God without the imposition of creed, the interference of clergy, or the intervention of civil government.”

Church Freedom
“Church freedom is the historic Baptist affirmation that local churches are free, under the Lordship of Christ, to determine their membership and leadership, to order their worship and work, to ordain whom they perceive as gifted for ministry, male or female, and to participate in the larger Body of Christ, of whose unity and mission Baptists are proudly a part.”

Religious Freedom
“Religious freedom is the historic Baptist affirmation of freed OF religion, and freedom FROM religion, insisting that Caesar is not Christ and Christ is not Caesar.”
