-What We Believe-
Before you read our doctrinal beliefs please remember our God is a God of order, but also a God of grace. While we do not apolagize for our stand we believe our Lord gives grace and shows patience to all who want to do right.
At Life and Liberty Baptist you will find a group of people willing to help anyone who has questions as to what we believe and why we believe it.
The Bible is the inspired, unfailing Word of God, without error, preserved
through the King James Version for the English language.

for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"

purified seven times." Psalm 12:6

child of the Holy Ghost." Matthew 1:18

appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David,
fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived
in her is of the Holy Ghost." Matthew 1:20
The blood of Christ was shed for sin.
"Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is
in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation
through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the
remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;"
God has provided the free gift of eternal life to all men.

Unless a man be born again, he cannot go to heaven.
"There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the
Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi,
we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do
these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old?
Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born
of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the
Spirit is spirit." John 3:1-6

heaven, but my Father only. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not
pass, till all these things be fulfilled." Matthew 24:34-37
