Upper Merion Baptist Church believes...
All have sinned and fallen short of God's glory. We are in need of a Savior.
Salvation from the eternal penalty of sin is provided solely by the grace of God through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and is received only through faith in Him.
The Lord's Supper is a remembrance of the Lord's death until He comes again.
In one God, eternally existing in three Persons as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, was given to humankind through divine inspiration. We therefore believe it to have been created without error, and it is the authoritative word of God. The scriptures contained in the Bible are designed to provide direction for our daily lives.
Baptism, by immersion of the believer in water, represents the essential fact in redemption - the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Baptism is the believer's profession of their desire of death to sin, and resurrection to newness of life in Jesus Christ.
The Church in today`s society is a body of believers associated for worship, service, and the spread of the Gospel. The purpose of the Church is to challenge and encourage all believers to be faithful witnesses to all those we encounter and help proclaim the Gospel and the plan of salvation.
The role of the Pastor is to teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, exercise pastoral oversight, and assume general guidance and care of the spiritual interests of the Church and its membership. The Pastor is to be a role model to all that are followers of Jesus Christ as well as to non-believers.
