What We Believe
Our beliefs describe how we view God, Jesus, the Bible and many significant aspects of our faith. Firmly rooted in scripture, the beliefs of Brazos Fellowship guide our decisions as a church.
The Bible is the record of God’s self-disclosure and forms the basis for our belief and understanding about who God is and how He works. Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32
We believe there exists only one living and true God who is revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God as revealed himself in the Bible as a Trinity. Which means:
God is three persons. Each person is fully God. There is one God.
(Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19)
(Hebrews 9:28; Philippians 2:6-11)
We believe the Holy Spirit is a person of the Trinity who comforts, convicts and teaches. He dwells in and seals the believer in Christ. His work is to reveal Christ, convict of sin, lead to repentance, guide believers, comfort, and strengthen.
(Ephesians 5:18; Ephesians 1:13-14; John 15:1-5)
(2 Timothy 3:16)
(1 Timothy 2:4-6; Ephesians 2:8-9,13; Romans 10:9,13)
(Acts 2; John 17:20-26; Ephesians 4)
We believe baptism is an act of obedience shared in the context of the church to symbolize the change Jesus Christ has made in the new believer’s life. Baptism was modeled by Jesus for all believers to follow as a testimony to the world that He is their Savior and Lord. Baptism is by completely immersing the professing believer underwater.
(Matthew 3:13-17; Romans 6; Colossians 2:12)
(1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
