Statement of Faith

Without apology West Florida Baptist Academy holds to the statement of faith of the West Florida Baptist Church of Milton, Florida. A listing of what we believe follows:

  1. The divine inspiration of the Scriptures (1611 King James Version).
  2. The triune God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit).
  3. The fallen nature of man and his just condemnation because of sin.
  4. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter ones gender by surgery or appearance.
  5. We believe that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman.
  6. Salvation by grace through faith, as a free gift of God, through Jesus Christ our Savior.
  7. The progressive work of sanctification.
  8. The eternal security of the believer.
  9. The harmony of the law and the Gospel.
  10. The prominence of the local, visible New Testament Church.
  11. The baptism by immersion for believers.
  12. The ordinance of the Lord’s Supper.
  13. The honoring of the home, church, and civil government.
  14. The Incarnation, the Virgin Birth, and the Deity of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
  15. The death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day.
  16. The vicarious and substitutional atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His Blood on the cross.
  17. The resurrection of the righteous to life and the wicked to damnation.
  18. The personal imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
  19. That creation, not evolution, describes the beginning of man; that man was created by a direct act of God and in the Image of God.
