What We Believe
At Walnut Grove we believe our mission is to make and train disciples who make and train disciples (Matthew 28:19-20).
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father,
Son and Holy Spirit. (II Corinthians 13:14).
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is completely true and without error in its original writings. It is the authority for life and faith. (II Timothy 3:16,17).
Everyone has sinned and is in need of a Savior. (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23).
Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and physically rose from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15: 1-8, John 3:16).
All who receive Jesus by faith, publicly confess Christ and are baptized become children of God, a relationship in which they are secure. (Acts 16:31; Romans 8:38,39; 1 John 5:13, Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 6:3,4; Matthew 10:32,33). Walnut Grove Baptist Church practices baptism by immersion.
One day, Jesus Christ will return to earth, the living and dead will be judged, and Jesus will reign forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
