We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith, and not
of works. This means that salvation cannot be earned by any
work (church attendance, baptism, repenting of your sins, etc,
etc). Salvation is putting your faith in Jesus Christ and that he
died, was buried, and rose from the grave to pay for your sin.
You receive salvation by simply asking the Lord Jesus Christ to
We believe in the eternal security of the believer (once saved
always saved). Just like there is nothing you can do to earn
salvation, there is nothing you can do to lose it.
We believe that the King James Bible is the Word of God. We
believe God inspired and preserved it.
We believe that in the beginning was the word Jesus is God
in the flesh, and that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy
Ghost of the Virgin Mary.
We also believe that Mary did not stay a virgin, but had other
children that the scripture mentions.
We believe in the local church, we reject the teaching of the universal church. We have Jesus Christ and the
Bible as the head of our church and not some Pope, Prophet,
President, or Board of directors.
We believe that church membership is a privilege and not a
right and church members are subject to be removed from
membership and not allowed to attend the services if they
violate the qualifications of church membership as set forth in
the Holy Scriptures and the by-laws of Shield of Faith Baptist
We believe that the unsaved/lost will spend eternity
tormented in a literal hell (and eventually the Lake of Fire).
We reject the teaching of Calvinism and believe that God
wants everyone to be saved.
We believe that abortion is murder and oppose all forms of
birth control that end life after conception (fertilization).
We are Non-dispensational.
We believe in the priesthood of the believer and oppose
worldliness and believe in a holy separated life.
We take a stand against the charismatic, new
evangelical, and ecumenical movements of our day.
We believe in preaching the whole counsel of God no matter
what season it is.
We believe that sodomy (homosexuality) is a sin and an
abomination before God which God punishes with the death
penalty. No sodomite (homosexual) or "transgender" persons will be allowed to attend or
join Shield of Faith Baptist church.
We believe that the earth is a sphere, it revolves around the sun, the King James
Bible teaches this and is 100% scientifically accurate. We reject the flat earth theory.
This is not an all inclusive list; we believe anything and
everything found in the King James Version of the Bible.
