The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith in Modern English
Living Faith Baptist Church of Shelby is a confessional church that ascribes to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of faith. Our purpose is to give glory and worship to our God as manifested in the Holy Bible according to the direction of the Scriptures. We rely solely on the power of the Holy Spirit given to the church as a seal for the final day of redemption to accomplish his work in Shelby. We take seriously the mandate of the church family to exercise their spiritual gifts for the building up and growth of the body of Christ. We do this through bearing one another’s burdens and stirring up one another to good works for God’s glory. We believe in evangelism through the proclamation of the Gospel, which is defined by God’s Word as the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We believe in and rely upon the power of the Holy Spirit to bring about spiritual regeneration through the proclaiming of that gospel.
