Beliefs

 

We Believe: God the Father is sovereign, God the Son, Jesus Christ, is Savior, God the Holy Spirit seals and secures and

God's Word is sufficient;

all men are born sinners and are in need of being reborn as sons of God.

 

  • Meansville Baptist Church was founded in 1885 as a purposeful mission church.

The orginal group was very clear in their doctrinal stances and purpose, adhearing to historic Baptist confessions and a Great  Commission mindset. The original charter statement appears here:

On August 18, 1885, a small group of Christians, being called of God out of nature’s darkness into the marvelous light of His blessed Word, having been regenerated and given to the Lord; baptized by immersion upon a profession of faith in Christ Jesus; believing it to be the duty of Christians to let their light shine before men, organized the Meansville Baptist Church.

  • Our Current Mission statement seeks to continue our original mission:

Meansville Baptist Church seeks to fulfill our mission by: following Jesus, obeying the Great Commission and living the Great Commandments to make His name great in Meansville, in Georgia, across North America, and to the ends of the earth, as we are empowered by His Spirit, praying without ceasing, and being led by His Word as a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
