We are an independent Baptist Church located in Catalina, Arizona with a burden to reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to enrich lives through Jesus Christ.
The Bible: We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed and, therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament are the complete and divine revelation of God to Man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning. For the reasons of unity within the church, the doctrine of preservation, and because of its textual reliability, the King James Version of the Bible is the translation used by Open Door Baptist Church. I Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21
God: We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - each co-equal in being, power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 26:19
Jesus Christ: We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. He is God in the flesh, and lived a sinless life on earth. His voluntary, substitutional death on the cross made full atonement for the sins of the whole world. His bodily resurrection and ascension secure an eternal home in heaven for all that are in Christ. He is returning to rapture His saints, judge the world and set up His Millennial Kingdom on earth. John 1:1-15; Romans 5:12; I Corinthians 15:12-20; Philippians 2:5-8
Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Godhead. He was active in the creation and inspiration of the Scriptures and in the lives of the Old Testament believers and the life of Christ. The Holy Spirit is directly involved in the life of the believer through salvation and sanctification. John 16:13; Acts 2:4; 5:9; 8:29
Sin: We believe that man was created by a direct act of God in His own image. Man fell from his original state of innocence by a volantary act of his freewill. Man has an inherited sin nature and is a sinner by choice. Therefore, he is under the condemnation of God and is in need of salvation. Genesis 1:26-27; 2:16; 3:16-19; Romans 3:10-23; 6:23
Salvation: We believe that salvation is the free and gracious gift of God available to all mankind, whereby He restores sinful men to a right relationship to Himself on the basis of the finished work of Christ. John 6:37-40; Romans 8:1
