Buena Vista Baptist Church is a“Bible Teaching Church.”We believe in one God with three
    manifestations -- God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Our Motto,“The Bible Teaching Church”
    leads us to or mission in II Timothy 2:15 which states,“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a
    workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”Then we can do as Mark 16:15
    commands,“Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

           We know that we are charged and equipped by God to love one another and with the mission of
    reconciliation –reconciling the world with God. We believe that a visible church of Christ is a congregation
    of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the
    ordinances of Christ; governed by his laws; and exercising the gifts, rights and privileges invested in them
    by his word; that its only Scriptural officers are bishops, or pastors, and deacons, whose qualifications,
    claims and duties are defined in the epistles to Timothy and Titus.
