The Holy Bible is the inspired word of God and is the basis for any statement of faith. We band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind. The Ordinances of the church are Baptism and the Lord's Supper. We, as members of this church subscribe to the doctrinal statement of the "Baptist Faith and Message" as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000 (BFM2000).
THE BAPTIST FAITH AND MESSAGE (Core Doctrines)
OFBC is a Southern Baptist Church serving the Summerville area through the Screven Baptist Association, while serving the world through the cooperative efforts of the Southern Baptist Convention. We are committed to carrying out the work of the body of Christ which is outlined in Ephesians 4:11-12: "And he gave some apostles; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ."
