What We Believe

In Essentials, Unity
In Non-Essentials, Liberty
In All Things, Love

Brookwood is a member of the Hightower Baptist Association, and we align with the Hightower Baptist Association Principles:

ARTICLE 1. We believe in only one true and living God, the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, three in one.

ARTICLE 2. We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the word of God, and the only rule of faith and practice.

ARTICLE 3. We believe in the doctrine of original sin.

ARTICLE 4. We believe in man’s inability to recover himself from the fallen state he is in by nature of his own free will and holiness.

ARTICLE 5. We believe that sinners are justified in the sight of God only by the merits of Jesus Christ.

ARTICLE 6. We believe in the election of all God’s people that they are saved and called according to His purpose and grace given them in Christ Jesus before the world began. II Tim. 1:9 and in II Thess. 2:13. “But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you brethren, beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the spirit and belief of the truth.”

ARTICLE 7. We believe the saints shall persevere in grace and not finally fall away.

ARTICLE 8. We believe that Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of Jesus Christ; that true believers are the only people subject and the only scriptural mode of baptism is immersion.

ARTICLE 9. We believe in the resurrection of the dead and general judgment.

ARTICLE 10. We believe no minister has the right to administer the ordinances only to such as have been called by God, as was Aaron, regularly baptized, approved by the church and come under the imposition of hands by a presbytery.

ARTICLE 11. We believe that none but believers have a right to the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
