Philippians 1:14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear. 15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: 16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: 17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defense of the gospel.


Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


2 Corinthians 5:11  Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men;


Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.


Generally understood, the fundamentals of the Christian faith include:

  1. The inspiration and authority of the Word of God.
  2. The deity, virgin birth, blood atonement, bodily resurrection, and personal          second coming of Christ;
  3. The fallen, lost condition of all mankind;
  4. Salvation through faith, received by grace plus nothing and minus nothing;
  5. The eternal doom of the lost in Hell;
  6. And the eternal blessedness of the saved in Heaven.


We hold these fundamentals to be the Truth of the Bible, the GOSPEL, the Good News.

            We preach them in obedience to the command of Christ our Saviour.

And we defend them from the lies of the devil.


Galatians says there is “not another” gospel

  1. Some “Christians” slip into Calvinism, L
    1. It Relegates man to a robot that has been programmed, but has no will of its own – unable to learn of God and respond to Him.
    2. It Limits Christ's atonement to only those he chose indiscriminately before time began.
    3. It encases God in a hard shell that cannot be touched by the appeals of lost humanity.
    4. It blunts His blessed invitation to sinners.
    5. Calvinism is a church killer; it changes the gospel.
  2. Others practice tongues, while professing to believe in the fundamentals.
    1. This puts their life and practice out of sync with the N.T.
    2. They pursue ‘experiences,’ rather than learning God’s Word and obeying.
  3. Some hold the fundamentals,
    1. But become obsessed with hobby horses.
    2. They are more interested in what they are against than what they are for.
    3. They neglect the duties and responsibilities of Christians.
    4. Sadly, many who adhere to the fundamentals of the faith win few souls. 
  4. But we hold to the fundamentals of the faith and defend them!

I.             The Inspiration of the Bible.

A.            Jesus said, "Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Mat 4:4.

1.             Where does Scripture come from? 

2.             Every Word --- out of the mouth of God


B.            Jesus said, For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:18 

1.             What authority does the Scripture have?

2.             He said not one jot or one tittle shall fail of all that is written in Scripture.

3.             You can take this book to eternity, count on it, believe it, live it!


C.            Again and again the Scriptures tell us that God put His very words in the mouth of those who spoke and wrote His Word.

1.             David said, The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word [was] in my tongue.  2 Samuel 23:2 

2.             Paul told Timothy “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God" (God-breathed).

a.              Inspiration is the supernatural influence bestowed upon the writers of the Holy Scriptures, rendering these writings infallible.


3.             The Writers did not understand what they wrote. 

a.              They did not understand how those things could come about.

b.              Man is not wise enough to write Holy Scriptures.

c.              God put the words on the pages before them.


4.             We believe in the Inspiration of the Bible. J

a.              If you believe that, say “AMEN.”

b.              What else can we believe?


5.             Illustration: I witnessed to a man.

                        -           I asked him, did he believe in the Bible as the Word of God?

                        -           He said yes.

                        -           Then I lead him to Christ.

                        -           It was easy.

                        -           But if he had said no, I would have quoted Scripture anyway

Isaiah 55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it.

II.          The deity, virgin birth, blood atonement, bodily resurrection and Second-coming of Christ.        

A.            The worst heresies existing are the false teachings about Jesus Christ.

1.             The cults all share in these lies.

2.             Liberals deny the Deity of Christ

3.             Westcott and Hort, who changed the underlying Greek text of the Bible, denied the deity of Jesus Christ.

B.            Those who deny the deity of Christ are they really "Christians?"

1.             We believe a Christian is one converted by trusting in Christ as Saviour

2.             This is why we believe a Christ denier is not a Christian.

3.             Jesus said … Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.  I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. John 8:23,24


C.            Denying Christ’s incarnation, miracles, atonement, or His resurrection is denying His DEITY.

1.             Anyone denying the deity of Jesus Christ will die in his sins unsaved.

2.             The deity of Christ is a fundamental of the Faith.

3.             If someone professes to know Christ, you might ask him if he believes

a.              In the miracles of Christ.

b.              That Jesus died for the sins of every repentant sinner.

c.              That He arose from the grave.

d.              That He is alive in Heaven.

e.              That He is coming again.

f.                That Jesus Christ is God.

4.             If he says “No,” then tell them about the Saviour.

III.      The Fallen, lost condition of all mankind.

A.            The Bible says:

1.             There is none righteous, no not one.  Rom 3:10.

2.             For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.  Rom 3:23.

B.            The only way to God is through repentance and faith in Christ.

1.             Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

2.             John 3:36  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

C.            Our church will not save anyone apart from repentance and faith.

1.             Men must be saved.

2.             They are LOST.

IV.      Salvation by grace through faith, plus nothing, minus nothing

A.            Our works will not get us to Heaven.  Salvation is a gift from God.

1.             Eph. 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

2.             Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

V.         Eternal doom in hell for the unbeliever, and eternal bliss in Heaven for the believer.

A.            This brings us to the reality of the matters before us.

1.             Every man, woman and child in this world will end up in one of these two ends.

2.             Revelation 21:7  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

3.             Revelation 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

4.             God cares where we go.

5.             2Pe3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

VI.      Conclusion:

A.            Northwest Baptist Church’s belief is fundamental.

1.             We believe God's Word.

2.             We believe Christ is the Son of God, came to earth, died for our sins, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven.

3.             We believe that man is in need of such a Saviour.

4.             We follow God’s simple plan of Salvation.

5.             And we gladly claim Heaven as our home.

B.            Now, will you take these fundamental beliefs to your own heart this morning?

1.             Believe

a.              Believe in the Word of God

b.              Believe in the Saviour

c.              Call upon Christ to save you.

d.              Follow Him in Baptism

e.              Become a member and walk in the Light of Christ.

2.             Don’t be unbelieving!  Don’t cling to a passing world.

a.              The rewards are all too brief.

b.              And the resulting condemnation is everlasting.

c.              Make your way to an altar this morning and receive Christ as your Saviour.
