The Diamond Valley Baptist Church is a fellowship of Christians who believe in the inspiration and authority of the Bible. We
believe that God is eternally triune, that man is born a sinner and deserves punishment, and that Jesus Christ, (God in flesh),
perfectly paid for the redemption of all who believe, giving them eternal life. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells those who belong
to God, that He sanctifies them and unites them in loving fellowship. We believe that the bible is clear that those who do not
believe the gospel of God will be eternally separated from Him." We profess a living faith, rooted and grounded in Jesus Christ,
who is alive and "the same yesterday, and today and forever." Therefore, the sole authority for faith and practice at DVBC is Jesus
Christ, (the living word) as revealed in the Holy Scriptures (the written word)
DVBC Statement of Faith
I. The Scriptures
The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure
of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.
There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver,
and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
Man was created by the special act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning work of His creation. In the beginning man was
innocent of sin and was endowed by His Creator with freedom of choice. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought
sin into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed the command of God, and fell from his original
Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by
His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and
V. God's Purpose of Grace
Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the
free agency of man, and comprehends all the means in connection with the end. It is a glorious display of God's sovereign goodness,
and is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting and promotes humility. All true believers endure to the end.
Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the State of grace, but shall persevere
to the end. Believers may fall into sin through neglect and temptation, whereby they grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and
comforts, bring reproach on the cause of Christ, and temporal judgments on themselves, yet they shall be kept by the power of God
through faith unto salvation.
VI. The Church
A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith
and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and
privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth.
VII. Baptism and the Lord's Supper
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of
obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life,
and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of
the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
