What We Believe
Essentials (These essentials must be affirmed for membership.)
The Bible: The Bible (66 books of the Old and New Testaments) is God’s Word. It is the written revelation of God to us and our only source for belief and living. It was written by human authors supernaturally inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is truth without any error.
2 Tim. 3:15-17; 2 Pet.1:20-21; Ps. 19:7-13; Ps. 119; Mt. 24:35; Mt. 5:18; Jn. 17:17
God: There is one true God who is Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three distinct and co-equal personalities: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is all knowing, all-powerful, and everywhere present at all times. He is perfect and unchanging in all his attributes: Loving, Merciful, Kind, Good, Holy, Just, Faithful, and True Gen. 1:1 Mt. 28:19 Psalm 139:1-12, Is. 6:1-7 Psalm 136 I John 4:8 Romans 8:14-16
Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ is co-equal with the Father and the Spirit. He is the only begotten Son of God. He has existed eternally. He was born to a virgin and lived a sinless life. He died on the cross for the sins of the world and was raised three days later to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return to rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. . Col. 1:15-20, 2:9; John 1:1-5; Mt. 1:22-23; Is. 9:6; Heb. 1:1-3, 2:18, 4:14-15; 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Cor. 15:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; Rev. 17:14, 19:11-16
The Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son. He is present in the world and in the life of all believers to show mankind their need for Jesus Christ and the Truth of God’s Word. He brings power for living, ministry, and witnessing to those He indwells. He gives and empowers spiritual gifts to all He indwells. He teaches and brings to remembrance the things and words of God.
Jn.14:16-17; Ro. 8:9; 1 Cor. 2:12; Jn. 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; Eph.1:13-14; Eph. 5:18; Gal 5:22-25
Man: Human beings are made in God’s spiritual, moral, reasonable, and emotional image. Mankind is the supreme creation of God, created to know, love, and be like God in character. Every Human is precious and valuable to God from the moment of conception. However, sin entered the human race through Adam. Sin corrupts us all and leads us into sinful acts. Sin separates us from God and from eternal and abundant life. Every person is separated from God by the sin nature and by choice.
Genesis 1:27; Ps. 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23
Salvation: Salvation is by God’s grace, accepted by faith alone. By trusting Christ and his death on the cross as the full payment for our sin, we are saved as we turn from sin to Him. Salvation is given by the grace of God and cannot be taken away. Our security is rooted in the power and promise of God who is faithful. We are completely forgiven and completely right with God from the moment of salvation.
Eph. 2:8-9; Romans 6:23; Jn. 14:6; Romans 5:1; 8:1,38-39; Titus 3:5; John 3:16; Eph. 1:13
Baptism: Baptism is an act of obedience to Christ that symbolizes our identification with His death, burial, and resurrection. As such it is reserved for those who have expressed their desire to be followers of Jesus Christ. Baptism is by immersion in order to illustrate the death burial and resurrection of Christ.
Mt. 3:13-17, Mk. 1:9-11, Lk. 3:21-22, Mt. 28:19-20; Acts 18:8; 1 John 2:3; Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:41
Security and Perseverance of Believers: Those who have truly placed saving faith in Christ are born spiritually and are kept secure by the promise and power of God. Their security is not based on their continued self-effort. While true believers may from time to time fall into sin or out of fellowship and ministry because of neglect of their spiritual life or other circumstances, the reality of their salvation will be shown by positive response to the loving discipline of Christ and the church. All who are truly saved will persevere in their faith in Christ until the end. Romans 8:38-39; John 10:28-29
Everything else! Non-essentials must not be allowed to bring us into division and distraction. We choose instead to focus on Christ, unity in Him, and ministry together.
About Our Affiliation
Our main identity is that we are a 21st century Western Heritage Church; that is, our highest loyalty is to God and His Word. We have chosen to affiliate with and agree to the statements of faith of the BGCT (Baptist General Convention of Texas) for 4 reasons: (1) They have been instrumental in raising financial support (2) The cooperative mission endeavors allow us to have a great part in world-wide ministry (3) Our doctrinal statement is in agreement with the historic denominational positions on essential matters this gives us our foundation to build from (4) BGCT (Baptist General Convention of Texas) churches are autonomous. They voluntarily choose to cooperate.
Triple S Cowboy Church bases all of its financial policies on Biblical principles. We do not pass an offering plate, and we do not seek to manipulate people into giving. Biblically the church is never called to collect the tithe; however Christ followers are called to give and support the work of the church. Therefore we do not collect a tithe. We receive the tithes and offerings that people give. Since God owns everything, we see ourselves (individually and as a church) as stewards, not owners. A steward is a manager-one who manages another’s property. Biblical Stewardship is expected of those who commit their lives to Christ and to church membership. The church is financed through the giving of its members.
Pastor Brandon Greene was called by God to be a minister to all those who He has ordained him the opportunity.
