Hello and Welcome!
We at Illinois Valley Baptist Church would like to invite you and your family to join us each and every Sunday for a special time of worship, praise and fellowship. We are a small congregation here in the Illinois Valley dedicated to the study of Scripture and Biblical Principle. However, our love of the Lord is not expressed only by reading His Word, but by making a determination each and every day to love one another, to serve one another and to always honor and give glory to our Savior, Jesus Christ, above all others.
We Believe ~
~ That the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God.
- II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21
~ In the Trinity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- I John 5:6-8
~ That Jesus is the Son of God, born of a virgin and lived a sinless life.
- II Corinthians 5:20,21; Galatians 4:4,5
~ That Salvation is a gift of grace and received by faith and not by works; received only once and cannot be taken away.
- Ephesians 2:8,9
That baptism by immersion is a step of obedience, as a public profession of our faith and not a means of salvation.
