ABOUT US

Norton Baptist Church first met as a small group of believers in December of 1940. The past 80 plus years have brought a lot of changes, however, Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is still the Way, the Truth and the Life, and the gospel is still true, that no one comes to the Father except through Jesus.

This is why Jesus is everything to us here at Norton Baptist Church, and our desire is to know Him more deeply and help others do the same, and He reveals Himself through His Word. We try not to get distracted with music styles or instruments, how people dress, what version of the Bible one uses, or other opinions that are not clearly laid out in Scripture. Rather, we are a family that seeks to love Jesus and one another more than we love our own opinions on these matters.

 

If this sounds like a place where you could fit in, it would be our honor for you to come visit with us.

BASIC BELIEFS

THE BIBLE

We believe that "All scripture is given by inspiration of God," and because of this the Bible is the very Word of God. We believe in verbal, plenary inspiration, which means that God not only inspired the message, but also the words that men wrote. We believe the Bible is sufficient to give us all things necessary to live a life of godliness.

THE GODHEAD

We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three Persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one God. 

SALVATION

We believe that mankind is dead in his trespasses and sin, and only God through the work of the Holy Spirit can awaken anyone to new life. This is made possible only through the work of Jesus Christ as planned out by the Father. The regenerated individual is a new creation in Christ Jesus created for good works. While man absolutely gains eternal life through this salvation, the ultimate goal of salvation is for the praise of God's glorious grace.

THE CHURCH

We believe that all who are united to the risen and ascended Son of God are members of the Church which is the Body and Bride of Christ -- regardless of membership or non-membership in any organized church. All Christians are under solemn duty to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, loving one another with a pure heart fervently.

THE ORDINANCES

We believe that the ordinances of the church are Baptism (by immersion) and the Lord's Supper.

ETERNAL STATE

We believe that at death, those in Christ go immediately into the presence of God. We also believe that those outside of Christ at death go immediately into hell, consciously in torment, separated from God for eternity.
