About Our Church

Burnside Christian Church first met in 1873 continuing through today. We strive to recapture the spirit of the first century church by accepting the Bible as our only guide. We place a vital and strong emphasis on the preaching and teaching of the inspired Word of God. We believe that the Bible is divinely inspired and without error. It is our authority of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).

We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God (Matthew 16:16). We believe that He was virgin-born, sinless, died on the cross for our sins, was raised from the dead on the third day, and is coming again (Matthew 1:18; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; John 14:3). We believe that Jesus is the Head of the Church (Ephesians 5:23; Colossians 1:18).

The Church is the bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:25-28) and the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12).

We believe in New Testament conversion which includes belief, repentance, confession, and baptism by immersion (Acts 2:14-47, 8:9-13, 9:1-18, 22:16, 16:25-34). We believe in living the faithful Christian life until death (Revelation 2:10; 2 Peter 1:2-11; 1 John 1:5-10).

We believe the Holy Spirit, which every believer receives at conversion (Ephesians 1:13, 14; Acts 2:38) leads and guides us.

We believe the purpose of the Church on earth is to fulfill the last command of Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20). Our goal is to exalt Christ and to lead and nurture people to a saving, personal relationship with Him.

We believe that God has given to every Christian a gift(s) to serve our Lord as we carry out His will in this life (Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 12:11-27; Ephesians 4:11-16).
