Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, wholly without error as originally given by God, and is sufficient as our only infallible rule of faith and practice. We deny that other books are inspired by God in the same way as the Bible. The fundamental truths to which we are committed are expressed in The Baptist Faith and Message, 2000 with the clarification of inerrancy as described above. The doctrinal position of the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia shall not be binding upon any local church; however, the SBCV recognizes its right and responsibility to determine its identity, including doctrinal parameters, and to include within its affiliation those churches who can freely agree with it, and to exclude those churches that do not.
