Walnut Hill Bible Church Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Membership & Covenant
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
— Hebrews 10:23-25
We believe that membership in a local assembly of believers is a vital component of ongoing growth and discipleship for the believer. However, we do not actively push or recruit people to become members of Walnut Hill. We consider this as a deeply personal, spiritual question that individuals need to spend time working through with God.
There are certain aspects of service at Walnut Hill, such as teaching a Sunday School class, that do require membership in order to ensure and maintain a continuity of teaching and leadership. Membership also carries with it both the privilege and responsibility of being a part of the decision-making process relating to the operation and direction of the church. The governance of Walnut Hill Bible Church is constitutionally vested in the membership of the congregation.
When you become a member at Walnut Hill, you are seeking to join in a “covenantal” community, joining with other Christians for the sake of His mission and honor.
