Our Statement of Belief
The sixty-six canonical books of the Bible as originally written were inspired of God, hence free from error. They constitute the only infallible guide in faith and practice.
There is one God, the Creator and Preserver of all things, infinite in being and perfection. He exists eternally in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who are of one substance and equal in power and glory.
God created Adam and Eve in His own image. By disobedience, they fell from their sinless state through the temptation by Satan. This fall plunged humanity into a state of sin and spiritual death and brought upon the entire race the sentence of eternal death.
From this condition we can be saved only by the grace of God, through faith, on the basis of the work of Christ, and by the agency of the Holy Spirit.
The eternally pre-existent Son became incarnate without a human father, by being born of the Virgin Mary. Thus, in the Lord Jesus Christ, divine and human natures were united in one Person, both natures being whole, perfect, and distinct. To effect salvation, he lived a sinless life and died on the cross as the sinner's substitute, shedding his blood for the remission of sins.
On the third day, he physically rose from the dead in the body which had been laid in the tomb. He ascended to the right hand of the Father, where he performs the ministry of intercession. He shall come again, personally and visibly, to complete his saving work and to consummate the eternal plan of God.
The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Triune God. He applies to man the work of Christ. By justification and adoption, we are given a right standing before God; by regeneration, sanctification, and glorification our nature is renewed.
When we have turned to God in penitent faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we are accountable to God for living a life separated from sin and characterized by the fruit of the Spirit. It is our responsibility to contribute by word and deed to the universal spread of the Gospel.
At the end of the age, the bodies of the dead shall be raised. The righteous shall enter into full possession of eternal bliss in the presence of God, and the wicked shall be condemned to eternal death.
We believe marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment between three, the man, the woman and God Almighty
The Mission of Bible Deliverance
In 1977 Bible Deliverance Church was founded by Bishop Brady Lee Smith. The ministry's vision was to utilize non-traditional means of teaching the Word of God, with the intent of developing disciples for Jesus Christ.
Bible Deliverance set out to evangelize to and reach those declared "unreachable". The committed goal was to utilize the experiences, mishaps, and testimonies of the blemished as a cornerstone to exalt God Almighty.
Bible Deliverance is built on the foundation of the absolute Word of God as the ultimate means of deliverance and guidance for all mankind. Our focus is on giving a platform to God and His Word alone.
We have picked up a mantle to be a church without walls. We recognize that the confines of church walls, traditionally only draw “churched people”. We are committed to reaching the unchurched, the unbelievers, those trying to find their way, those following false religions, and those who doubt the existence and or the power of God. We know these are souls who would likely never cross the threshold of a church but are unquestionably souls worth saving.
We are proud to say there are enough churches in every city and state and we believe every believer should be connected to a biblically sound church that embraces the mission of evangelism. As children of God, we should never forsake fellowshipping with other believers for the sake of strengthening our faith, learning the Word of God, and more importantly being an intricate part of the body of Christ. When the body works collectively, we as believers can walk in dominion, as assigned to us by God.
Bible Deliverance is committed to evangelism that answers the tough questions, engages in and teaches conversational and common sense evangelism, boasting the consistency of righteousness as it aligns with the Word of God.
