“…contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.” (Jude 3, ESV)

You’ve probably heard people talk about their faith, and in most instances, they were describing an action. In other words, they used it as a verb, “You gotta have faith, you just have to believe.”

But sometimes faith is a noun, like right there in Jude’s command, where it represents an entire system of religious belief, all of our theology and practice.

One of the reasons a group of believers (a church) is so important is that we are the ones who are supposed to do exactly what Jude commands. Namely, we regularly gather together to remind ourselves what we believe about who God is, what he has done for us and the world through his Son, and what he is doing to bring that work about by the power and activity of his Holy Spirit.

In other words, we contend for the faith that was delivered to us.

If you’d like to know a bit of what that looks like in practice, check out the Living on Mission page.

And if you’d like a seriously stout description of our Baptist beliefs, you should order the little volume (just 65 pages), A Faith to Confess: The Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689. But for a brief statement of our faith, just swipe through the thirteen points below.
