Hutto Bible Church is a Non-Denominational Bible church that believes in and is based upon the historic Christian faith. Doctrine matters, because what we believe influences who we are and what we do. This isn’t just true of us as a church, but this is true of us as individuals. 



We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God. As God’s written Word, we believe that all 66 books (both the Old and New Testament) are supremely authoritative and completely trustworthy for matters of faith and conduct. We believe the Bible is without error as every word written by the human authors was inspired by the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21



We believe in one God eternally existing as one essence and three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Each person is fully God, yet there is one God. Each person is fully, equally and eternally God, sharing fully in all of His divine nature and attributes - and therefore each person is worthy of the same worship, honor and praise. The entire Christian faith is bound together with the confession of God’s Trinitarian nature. (Mark 12:29, John 4:24, Matthew 28:18-20)



We believe that Jesus Christ is the pre-existent and eternal Son of God who became man in order to reveal God and redeem mankind. As the Son, we believe that Jesus is God from God, eternally begotten but not made, who in history assumed a truly human nature for the sake of our salvation. Jesus is truly God and truly man. In Him all things were made, and by the power of His word all things hold together. We believe that Jesus suffered, died, was buried, resurrected, ascended and now sits at the right hand of God the Father until he returns for the final judgment and consummation of the Kingdom. (John 1:14, Hebrews 1:3, Colossians 1:15-20)



We believe in the full deity of the Holy Spirit who unites believers to Jesus Christ in faith, brings about the new birth and dwells within the regenerate. The Holy Spirit has come to glorify the Son and leads the Church into a right understanding and rich application of the truth of God’s Word. We believe the Holy Spirit has an active ministry in the world, generally, which includes the restraining of evil, convicting of the unsaved and bestowing God’s goodness on all mankind. We believe that the Holy Spirit seals, indwells, gives assurance, teaches, comforts, guides, baptizes into the Body of Christ and gives spiritual gifts to every believer. Finally, we believe it is the power of the Holy Spirit that enables us as believers to walk in obedience to Christ, and it is the Holy Spirit who progressively forms us into the image of Christ throughout the remainder of our lifetime. (Acts 5:3-4, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-9, John 16:7-11, Matthew 5:45, Titus 3:5, Ephesians 1:13, 1 Corinthians 6:19, 12:13, Ephesians 3:20, James 5:14, Romans 8:16)



We believe that the Triune God, according to His sovereign will and for His own glory, created the heavens and the earth without the use of pre-existent material. All living things, we believe, came into being by a direct creative act of God, and thus have an existence that is both distinct from His and entirely dependent upon His. God did not create out of necessity, but out of the overflow of His love. All of God’s creation was good. (Genesis 1:1-2, Psalm 24:1, Genesis 2:4, Proverbs 16:4, Acts 17:24, Colossians 1:16-17



We believe that all humanity - male and female - was made by God and was made in His image. Because all humanity was made in God’s image, every human possesses intrinsic dignity and worth. All men and all women are meant to represent God in His creation. We believe God made man - male and female - as complements to one another. Men and women both enjoy equal access to God by faith in Jesus Christ and are both called to move beyond passive self-indulgence to significant private and public engagement in family, church and civic life. Adam and Eve were made to complement each other in a one-flesh union within the covenant of marriage that established the only God-ordained pattern of sexual relations for men and women. In God’s wise purposes, men and women are not simply interchangeable, but rather they complement each other in mutually enriching ways.



While men and women are equal in essence, dignity and value - they are distinct by divine design. As part of God’s good created order, men and women are to have different yet complementary roles and responsibilities in the home and church. As it relates to church, men and women are both called to lead; however, the office of elder is reserved for men who meet the qualifications as spelled out in God’s Word. (Genesis 1:26-30, 1 Corinthians 10:31, 1 Timothy 3, Titus 1)



We believe that sin has fractured all things, leaving the world in desperate need of salvation and redemption. Through the deliberate disobedience of Adam and Eve, humanity fell from their sinless state and as a consequence lost fellowship with God and became subject to spiritual and physical death. Through Adam’s transgressions the entire human race has inherited a corrupt nature which is essentially evil and unable to please God. Each person is born into the world separated from God and completely incapable of earning salvation and avoiding the judgment of God. However, God has made provision for forgiveness of sin through the blood of Jesus Christ and victory over sin through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. (Genesis 3, Romans 3:10, 23, 6:23, Ephesians 2:1-3, 1 John 1:8-10, Galatians 5:16-17)



We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. Salvation from the penalty and power of sin is provided only through the blood of Jesus Christ, which He shed for us on the cross when He was made sin for us and died in our place. There is nothing man can do to attain this salvation through good works, moral achievement, or religious status. The one and only condition for salvation is personal faith in Jesus Christ as one’s own substitute for and Savior from sin. At the time of salvation, a person is spiritually regenerated, his sins are forgiven, God’s righteousness is imputed to him and he is declared righteous in the sight of God. This salvation is complete and a present possession of all believers which remains theirs forever. (1 Peter 1:18-19, John 3L5-8, Galatians 2:20, Hebrews 10:19-25, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 2:24, Ephesians 2:8-9, 4:23, Romans 8:23-39)



The salvation of humanity is fundamentally the work of God. Before the foundation of the world, God elected His people, setting His affection and grace upon them. In love, God predestined His people for adoption. Faith, therefore, is a gift of grace that is given by the mercy and pleasure of God. Apart from the intervention of God, humanity cannot choose of his own accord to worship God and pursue righteousness. God’s sovereignty in salvation is comprehensive: from first to last, all salvation is a work of God. (Romans 8:29-30, Romans 9:22-24, Ephesians 1:3-6)



We believe that the Church is the body of Christ sent into the world to shine forth the glory of God as living representatives of the gospel. The Church is a unique organism composed of individuals who have placed their faith in Christ as their Savior. The Church exists in both a universal and local sense, and has a twofold purpose of edifying believers and evangelizing the lost. The two ordinances of the church are baptism and the Lord’s Supper. (1 Corinthians 12:12-31, Acts 2:1-4, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, Ephesians 4:7, Matthew 28:19-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-28)



We believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit put on display in the New Testament are still available to the Church and are active within the life of the Church. We do not believe that any of the spiritual gifts ceased with the end of the apostolic era - and all spiritual gifts should be desired and practiced appropriately according to God’s Word to build up the body, to advance the Kingdom of God and to bring honor to the name of Jesus. (1 Corinthians 12:1-11, 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21)



We believe that the precedent established in the New Testament is that baptism following conversion is done by full immersion into water. We believe that baptism by immersion is meant to symbolically depict the believer’s real union with Christ in His death and resurrection, as well as the believer being transferred out of death into life as a part of God’s redeemed community. (Romans 6:1-14)



We believe that Jesus Christ will return physically, visibly, personally and gloriously to restore creation and judge the living and the dead. All who have died will be resurrected, and those who have not trusted in Christ for their salvation will experience eternal separation from God, while those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ will experience eternal joy in the presence of God. (John 14:3, Hebrews 10:37, 2 Corinthians 5:10, Matthew 24:21-31, Revelation 20-22)



We believe that God created an order of spiritual beings known as angels before the formation of the world for the purpose of worshipping and serving Him. We believe angels posses individual personalities and are intelligent, powerful, and inferior to God but superior to man. Satan, we believe, was one of the highest ranking angels in eternity past, but he sinned through pride and rebelled against God. We believe the Devil’s proclaimed purpose is to oppose the plan of God and to promote his own evil program by deceiving and attacking man. In carrying out his work, we believe Satan is aided by other fallen angels known as demons or evil spirits. We believe these demons can influence, tempt, and control men and even “posses” unbelievers. We believe there are unfallen angels, known as elect angels or holy angels, who carry out the will of God by ministering to man. (Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 1:6, 2 Peter 2:11, Isaiah 14:12-15, 1 Peter 5:8, Ephesians 6;12, Hebrews 1:14)
