What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

What we teach

The following are the core beliefs of Danvers Baptist Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

The Scriptures

We teach that the Bible, including both Old and New Testaments, is the inerrant, infallible, and inspired Word of God. The Scripture is the final Authority in all matters of faith and practice.

II Timothy 3:16 | II Peter 1:20-21


We teach that God is a Person, eternally existing, as a Trinity in unity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – three Persons and yet but one God.

Deuteronomy 6:4 | Matthew 28:19 | I Corinthians 8:6

The Son of God

We teach that Jesus Christ, eternally existing, is the only begotten Son of God, Who became a man totally apart from sin, being conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.

Luke 1:30-35 | John 1:1-15 | Philippians 2:5-8 | Colossians 1:15


We teach that man was created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death but also spiritual death – separation from God. Now all mankind has inherited a sinful nature, is bent toward sinning, and has become sinful in thought, word, and deed.

Genesis 1:26-27, 2:16-17, 3:6-19 | Romans 3:10-23, 6:23


We teach that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace, available to all, and accomplished through personal faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross.

John 1:12, 3:3-7 | Ephesians 2:8-9

Security of the Believer

We teach that all who are born again have “eternal life and they shall never perish,” and are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time.” They are thus kept by God’s power and are secure in Christ forever.

John 10:27-30 | Romans 8:31-39 | Romans 6:23 | I John 5:11-13

The Church

We teach that a New Testament Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, observing His laws, practicing His ordinances, and carrying out His commission. Such a group is associated together by a common faith and fellowship in the Gospel. The Church is an autonomous body, free from the mandates of any hierarchy and responsibility directly to her Lord. The Scriptural officers of a Church are Bishops (or Pastors) and Deacons, whose qualifications are found in

 I Timothy 3, and Titus 1.
Acts 2:41-42 | I Corinthians 11:2 | Matthew 28:19-20 | Ephesians 1:22-23

Baptism & The Lord's Supper

We teach that there are two Church Ordinances: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

Matthew 3:13-17, 28:19-20 | Acts 8:35-39 | Romans 6:3-5 | I Corinthians 11:23-29 | Colossians 2:12


We teach that God created the universe in six literal, 24-hour periods. We reject evolution, the Gap Theory, the Day-Age Theory, and Theistic Evolution as unscriptural theories of origin.

Genesis 1 & 2 | Exodus 20:11


We teach that God has given the church a great commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnic group, and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. As ambassadors of Christ we must use all available means to go to the foreign nations and not wait for them to come to us.

Matthew 28:19-20 | Mark 16:15 | Luke 24:46-48 | John 20:21 | Acts 1:8 | II Corinthians 5:20
