In a day when the tendency is to seek unity at any price, BCA proudly identifies itself as an old-fashioned, Christ-honoring, sin-hating, hellfire and damnation preaching, premillennial, soul winning institution that strongly believes the following:
We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the entire Bible, both Old and New Testaments. We further accept the Textus Receptus manuscripts from which came the King James Bible and accept the King James Bible as the divinely preserved Word of God in the English language.
We believe that God is a Person, eternally existing as a Trinity, manifesting Himself in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We further believe that these three are one God but separate in personality and work.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, eternally existing yet born of a virgin. Being God, He lived a sinless life; His death on the cross was both sufficient and substitutionary for the sins of the whole world. He is both true God and true man, the Savior of the world.
We believe in the creation of the universe and all things by a direct act of God, apart from any so-called evolutionary processes.
We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing upon mankind both physical and spiritual death. Mankind is now totally depraved, incapable of personal salvation and good works before God, and therefore in need of a Savior.
We believe that man is lost and must be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter Heaven. Man is justified by faith alone and is accounted righteous before God ONLY through the merit of the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is by grace through faith, minus nothing and plus nothing.
We believe that Jesus Christ founded the local church, and it consists of a group of believers baptized by immersion who have assembled together for the purpose of edification, exhortation, and evangelism as commanded by Christ in His Great Commission.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming again in the air at any moment to rapture His church and to reward its service. The unbelievers will be left behind and will go through a seven-year period called the Tribulation, after which Christ will return visibly to the earth to set up His Kingdom of one thousand years of perfect government and righteous rule. After this, the unbelievers of all ages will stand at the Great White Throne to be judged and cast into the Lake of Fire, separated from God forever, while the believers have their works judged at the Judgment Seat of Christ and will spend eternity in the fullness of joy in Heaven with the Lord.
We believe in the loyalty to country and government and the separation of church and state.
We believe that the Charismatic Movement and speaking in tongues is not of God, and we oppose both. We further believe that Biblical tongues was not a heavenly language, but rather an earthly language unknown to the speaker and as a gift of the Holy Spirit. Speaking in tongues ceased with the completion of the Bible.
