Teaching The Bible - As It Is,
To Men - As They Are...

We Believe -

    The people of South Heights Baptist Church of Sapulpa are a people of strong beliefs and convictions centered on our understanding of the Word of God. We have learned the truth of the statement, "A man who fails to stand for something, will fall for anything."

   Although we could fill multiple pages detailing what we believe as a congregation, we unapologetically take a stand for the following fundamental truths, which should help you to understand us more fully.

We Believe -
    - That the Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of  God, and that it is our only rule of faith and practice.

    - That the Alexandrian texts that are the basis of most all of the modern English translations of the Bible are corrupt, that the Antiochian texts are not, and that the King James Version of the Bible, which descends from the texts that came through Antioch, is God's preserved Word for English-speaking people.

    - That all souls need salvation from their sins, and that Jesus Christ paid the sin debt for all mankind so that we do not have to.

    - That salvation is a free gift, bestowed upon all who choose to receive Jesus Christ by an act of their will, and that salvation is given to us by Grace, through Faith, plus nothing.

    - That in order to be saved, one must come to Christ in repentance for one's sins, and by an act of the will accept by faith the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Saviour. We do not believe that it is possible for anyone to live a life that is "good enough" to take them to heaven when they die.

    - That the biblical Doctrine of Imputation teaches that -

        (A) mankind is lost because, when Adam sinned, a sin nature was put to the account (imputed) of the entire human race (Romans 5:12);
        (B) when Jesus Christ was on the Cross, the sins of all mankind were placed upon Him (II Corinthians 5:21);
        (C) when He said, "it is finished!", it meant that He had paid the sin debt for all mankind - past, present, and future; and
        (D), when a person accepts Christ as Saviour, God assigns (imputes) Christ's righteousness to that person's account, and God forevermore sees him in Christ, His Son, rather than in his sins (II Corinthians 5:21 & Philippians 3:9).

    - That Christ died, therefore, for the sins of the WHOLE world, not just for those people whom He knew were going to accept Him as Saviour, even though not every one of them would do so. 

    - That the Bible teaches that salvation is ETERNAL, and that our security is in Christ. Therefore, it is impossible for someone to become lost again after having been saved.

    - That the Bible is not a book of rules and regulations, but is, instead, a book of principles, and the second most important thing a person can do in life is to learn and apply the principles for living found in it.

    - That the Christian is commanded in Scripture to live a separated life: separated from the evil world system and unto the Lord Jesus Christ.

    - That the local church is an autonomous body, with Jesus Christ as it's Head, and the Pastor as the undershepherd of that congregation. Further, we are not ashamed to be called "Baptists", and hold to the beliefs, doctrines, and practices historically held by our Baptist predecessors.

    - That rhythm-based music, and rock music in particular, has no place in the life of the believer or the Lord's Church, due to their sensual nature. Therefore, we do not use or condone the use of what is often called "contemporary" music in our services, choosing, instead, to sing using psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, making melody in our hearts to the Lord (see Ephesians 5:19).

    - That the Lord Jesus Christ will return for His Bride, the Church, very soon. Therefore, we encourage all whom God gives us the opportunity to serve to live for Christ now, before their chance to do so has passed.
