      Our Mission

      The Mission of Indian River Baptist Church is to accomplish our Vision by:

      Loving God’s world and serving through creative ministry.


      Loving God’s world and going on His mission.


      Our Beliefs

      We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God.

      We believe in the One True God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


      We believe mankind is made in the image of God, but through sin has fallen from God’s original design of holiness, and is now separated from God.

      We believe Jesus Christ is the incarnate Son of God who died on a cross for the sins of the world, was buried, and then rose again on the third day to defeat death.


      We believe salvation from sin is received by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

      We believe a New Testament church is an autonomous, local congregation of baptized believers who are tasked with fulfilling the Great Commission.  


      We believe in the visible and physical return of Jesus Christ.


      For a more comprehensive articulation of our beliefs please see the Baptist Faith and Message of 2000 of the Southern Baptist Convention.
