Who We Are
Who We Are
Providence Baptist Church is a new church plant located in Bixby, OK. The church started in the summer of 2017 with a desire to be Christ-centered, theologically grounded, and missions minded.
We are Baptist.
We believe in baptism by immersion, the priesthood of the believer, religious freedom, baptism and the Lord's Supper as being symbolic in nature, regenerate church membership, the autonomy of the local church, the Lordship of Christ, and the Bible as our sole authority for life and practice. We also as Baptist believe that the Protestant Reformation was a real recovery of the Biblical truth concerning salvation and the role of the Scriptures in the life of the believer and the Church. We also firmly embrace the 5 Solas of the Protestant Reformation: Scripture Alone, Faith Alone, Grace Alone, Christ Alone, The Glory of God Alone.
The following is a list of distinctives that characterize us as a church.
We believe . . .
Christ is to be treasured above all things
In expository preaching and teaching
In biblical fellowship
In missions & evangelism
In promoting biblical manhood & womanhood (Complementarianism)
In a six literal day creation
In the inspiration, authority, & sufficiency of Scripture
Christ can be found in the Old Testament
The regulative principle (i.e., Scripture directs us in how we are to worship)
The gospel to be the power of God unto salvation
The church is to be intentional about making disciples
In lordship salvation
In practicing regenerate church membership
In practicing church discipline
Believers are to devote themselves to prayer (corporately & individually)
We are to seek God's glory in all things
STATEMENT ON SOCIAL JUSTICE & MARXISM
We denounce the false gospel (Galatians 1:6-10) that is being promoted today within Christianity known as Social Justice. We also reject those ideologies associated with the social justice movement, which are referred to as: Marxism, liberation theology, progressivism (so called), critical race theory, white privilege, white guilt, intersectionality, violence, reparations, and homosexuality. These destructive heresies (2 Peter 2:1) are contrary to Scripture, they undermine the true gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, and are contrary to how to how a Christian should act and believe based on the Bible.
