What does the church believe?

The Triune Nature of God

God always has been and always will be. He created life and sustains life. He has no equal. He exists in 3 distinct and equal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Spirit.

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, relevant for daily living, and the final authority on all matters of faith.

Salvation

The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.

Priesthood of the Believer

Each individual follower of Christ can go directly to God without the aid of any intermediary, and can, and should, read and interpret the Bible for him/herself without religious officials dictating what to believe.

Baptism

Biblical baptism is:
– by immersion
– for the believer
-symbolic of the death and resurrection on the believer shares with Christ
– an act of obedience
– an act of worship

Lord’s Supper/Communion

This ordinance of the church is:
– for the believer
– symbolic
– an act of obedience – an act of worship

Autonomy of the Local Church

University Avenue Baptist Church is an autonomous body of Christ followers, operating through democratic processes under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and is voluntarily affiliated with Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention (HPBC) and numerous other partner institutions at the national and global level.
