Burk’s branch is a Southern Baptist Church affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.  We affirm the statement of faith as published in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000, available here and summarized below.


We believe the Bible to be God’s word to man.  It is perfect and free of any mistakes.


We believe that there is one true God, who exists in three persons.  He is the Creator of all things and the Redeemer of mankind.  He exists as God the Father, God the Son in the person of Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit.


We believe God created man as male and female.  Man fell into sin by his own will and is completely dependent on God for life and salvation.


We believe that Salvation is from the Lord and is offered freely to all mankind.  It comes only through faith in Jesus Christ.


We believe that the work of Salvation is all of God’s work and none of man’s.


We believe the Church is the body of Christ and is expressed as autonomous local congregations all over the world for the purpose of making disciples.


We believe that all Christians observe the two ordinances of the Church, which are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.


We believe Baptism is the immersion of Believers in water signifying their forgiveness of sins, union with Christ, and newness of life.


We believe the Lord’s supper is taking of bread and the fruit of the vine for the remembrance of the death of Jesus Christ.


We believe that God in His own time and way will bring the world to a right end.  Jesus Christ will physically return to earth at that time.  The world will be judged and all Christians will be brought to live together with the Lord in heaven forever.
