Beliefs

Baptizing Chip 2013American Baptists believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and the final authority in matters of faith. Point Pleasant affirms the Trinity that the one God exists as three persons in complete unity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord through whom those who believe can have fellowship with God. He died, taking on the sins of the world, and was resurrected, triumphing over sin and death.

Point Pleasant Community Baptist Church recognizes two ordinances: Believer’s baptism and the Lord’s support. Baptism is by immersion and those being baptized must be of an age to understand the significance of this rite.
