Statement of Beliefs


At Canaan Baptist Church, we believe:

  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and He was crucified, died, and buried. On the third day, He rose from the dead and later ascended into heaven, where He remains at the right hand of God Almighty;

  • After death, eternal life begins either in heaven or hell. Where you spend eternity is based on your decision to make Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior.

  • When the Rapture occurs, the dead in Christ will rise first, and those who are alive and remain (those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior) will be caught up to meet Him in the air.

  • The Bible was written and inspired by God.

  • Faith is acting on the Word of God.

  • In water baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • In the authority of Jesus' Name.

  • In the indwelling of, and baptism of, the Holy Spirit

  • In divine healing—the restoration of health to those who believe and act on the truths written in God's Word. We further believe that Jesus is our Healer and that we are already healed by His stripes.

  • Tithes and offerings should be freely given to your local church. The local church is the place of membership where God has called us to receive His Word consistently and to grow spiritually.

  • In giving to the poor, sick, homeless, and others in despair.
