What We Believe


CREED

We begin with the Apostles’ Creed to affirm the most basic elements of Christianity. The Creed summarizes beautifully what Christians of all times, in all places have affirmed—“the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). The Creed is a clear, memorable, biblical summary of the gospel. It originated as a baptismal confession, probably in the 2nd century, and developed into its present form by the 6th or 7th century. Christians all over the world continue to use it as a confession of their faith.

Confession

We are a church, in the Baptist tradition, deeply committed to personal, gospel renewal. Like other church traditions, we are a confessional people. We affirm the value of historic, doctrinal statements to clarify our beliefs and remain faithful to Holy Scripture. The Baptist Faith & Message serves as our guiding doctrinal statement. 


Cave Spring Baptist Church partners with the Southern Baptist Convention and Southern Baptists of Virginia.

Covenant

As our confessional statement reminds us what we believe, our church covenant reminds us how to relate to one another. It puts our commitment to one another in the biblical terms of covenant faithfulness, brotherly love, gathered worship, service, burden-bearing, giving, and mission. The language of “covenant” is thoroughly biblical and it works itself out beautifully in the “one another” expressions of the NT. If you are considering church membership, a willingness to commit oneself to covenant membership is a good sign of readiness.
