About South Spring Baptist Church in Tyler TX

What We Believe


We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Word of God which never fails. It is our guide to faith and practice. (Matthew 5:17-18, Galatians 3:17-24, 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20, Hebrews 4:12)

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Galatians 3:20, Matthew 28:19, Philippians 3:3, 1 Peter 1:1-3, Acts 13:2)

We affirm the virgin birth of Christ, (who, though fully God, lived as fully man) His death on the cross, that He was resurrected and that He will come again. (Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:27-35, John 8:58, Hebrews 2:17, 1 Corinthians 15:3-6, 12-21, Acts 1:11, John 14:1-3)

Our church is a part of the Body of Christ on Earth and Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church. (1 Corinthians 12:12-30, Ephesians 4:1-16)


We utterly depend on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ in order that we can have a right relationship with God. (Romans 5:12-19, Galatians 1:3-6, 1 Peter 2:21-24, Hebrews 10:10-12)

We affirm that all believers are ministers and “priests” in the Kingdom of God on Earth. (1 Peter 2:9-10, 1 Corinthians 4:1)

We are committed to ministering to a lost and hurting world and to partnering with other ministries to accomplish this. It is our hope to equip the Church, evangelize the lost and exalt Almighty God. We believe in the Great Commission which Christ gave to His Church. (Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 25:31-40, Luke 19:11-27, 2 Corinthians 5:20)

We exhort the people of God everywhere to contend earnestly for the faith, prepared to give a reason for the hope we have. (Colossians 1:28-29, 1 Peter 3:15)

Beyond this, and for more information, we agree in essence with the doctrinal statement of “The Baptist Faith and Message” as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963 with the 1998 amendment.
