Our Faith and Lifestyle & Values Statement

Core Values

Windsor Baptist Church Lifestyle Statements

BIBLE AS THE SOLE AUTHORITY – God’s Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority. We accept the Bible as our manual for living and accept it as the basis for all we believe. This document and all other policies that this Church may adopt are and will be subservient to the Bible.

AUTONOMY OF THE CHURCH - This church is autonomous and its government is vested in the body of believers who compose it.  It is subject to the control of no other ecclesiastical body. Recognizing, however, the benefits of cooperation with other churches of like faith and order, this church voluntarily affiliates with the Southern Baptist Convention in its local, state, and national expressions.

MINISTRY OF EVERY BELIEVER - The Bible teaches that every Christian is called to “full time” Christian service, regardless of his or her vocation. We practice the truth that every believer is a minister by encouraging every member to find a place of service and ministry. Every believer has direct access to God through prayer Bible reading.

GIVING – For the support of Christ’s body, the Church, Windsor Baptist encourages each member to give back a portion of that which God has given.

IMMERSION AND THE LORD’S SUPPER - We believe that water baptism by immersion, after regeneration, and the Lord’s Supper are the ordinances Christ gave to the church. These ordinances are performed as acts of obedience and as a testimony of the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior.

SPIRIT-LED LIVING - We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God’s power within us. So we seek to practice a daily dependence on God’s Spirit to enable us to do what is right.

MARRIAGE AND THE FAMILY - We believe that the Family is the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God's unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship,  Furthermore, we believe that Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord.

MISSIONS AND EVANGELISM – We believe that it is the responsibility of every Christian to share the Good News with those with whom God brings us into contact. We practice personal sharing about Christ and inviting friends to church.
