Prospect Avenue Baptist Church is theologically and culturally conservative.
Our beliefs derive from the foundational premise that the Bible is inspired by God (each word and every portion), that it should be interpreted in a normal fashion, i.e., literally and with regard for the historical and grammatical context, and that the Bible, properly understood, is the authority of our life. God speaks to every area of life through His Scriptures. It is up to us then to learn His Word and apply His truth.
It is in the Bible that we learn that as sinners, each of us stands condemned by a holy and just God, and that Jesus Christ is the Savior of all people everywhere. Through faith in Christ's sacrificial death and miraculous resurrection people may be rescued from hell, forgiven of all sin, cleansed from all unrighteousness, given a new purpose in this life and the promise of heaven in the next.
