We believe that the Bible is the spoken word of God, and as such is written and translated for all to understand.
On Trinity Sunday, I read from the beginning of The Creed of St. Athanasius regarding the Trinity:
"...we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity, neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the Substance. For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one, the Glory equal, the Majesty co-eternal. Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost. The Father uncreate, the Son uncreate, and the Holy Ghost uncreate. The Father incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible, and the Holy Ghost incomprehensible. The Father eternal, the Son eternal, and the Holy Ghost eternal. And yet they are not three eternals, but one eternal. As also there are not three incomprehensibles, nor three uncreated, but one uncreated, and one incomprehensible."
I read this intentionally to show how we, man, have through the centuries sometimes complicated scripture causing confusion. At Little River Baptist Church, we do not complicate. We communicate. Our mission is to spread the word of Jesus Christ in the way he spoke, with love and simplicity.
We invite all into this house of the Lord to sing praises to his name and hear His Word. If you would like to know more about Little River Baptist Church and our worship, you may call or email us. Or better yet, join us for worship every Sunday at 11:00 AM.
