About Us

ONE FAMILY IN CHRIST

Who We Are

Littleton Baptist Church is located in the southern suburbs of Denver. We are God-centered and exist to bring glory to God. This is the chief aim and purpose of humanity and all of creation. The glory of God is ultimate. Because of God’s grace given to us, we seek to reflect Him by being a body of believers in Jesus Christ that meets together for encouragement, rebuke, growth, and guidance. We are a family of believers who would love to become your family!

Declaration of Faith

We believe that the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are verbally and plenarily inspired; that they contain truth without any mixture of error in the autographs; that they are infallible and inerrant in all matters of which they speak; and that they constitute God’s complete revelation and are the sole authority for faith and practice. We further believe that the Scriptures are to be interpreted according to a grammatical-historical hermeneutic. This demands that we understand the Bible literally when it speaks, for example, of the creation of the world in six solar days, the existence of Adam and Eve as the progenitors of the human race, the global deluge of Noah’s day, the creation of nations at Babel by means of language diversification, and the personal existence of an evil being called Satan. II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21; II Timothy 4:2; Psalm 33:4; 146:6

We believe in God the Father who is one God existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one in essence and co-eternal/co-equal in every divine attribute, perfect in holiness,  infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.  Exodus 15:11; Isaiah 6:3; I Peter 1:15-16; Genesis 17:1; Psalm 115:3; Exodus 20:5-6; Deut. 7:9; Psalm 65:2; 102:17; Matthew 21:13, 22; Romans 6:23; 10:13; John 14:6

We believe in Jesus Christ, who is one God existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one in essence and co-eternal/co-equal in every divine attribute, the eternal and only begotten Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, of Virgin birth, sinless in His life, making atonement for the sins of the world by His death. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into Heaven where He makes intercession for the Saints, and His visible return to the world according to His promise.  John 1:1-3, 18; Hebrews 1:8; Matthew 1:20-23; II Corinthians 5:21; Isaiah 53:4-5; I Peter 3:18; Romans 4:25; I Corinthians 15:3-4; I Peter 3:22; Hebrews 7:25; I Thessalonians 4:13-18

We believe in the Holy Spirit who is one God existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one in essence and co-eternal/co-equal in every divine attribute, who came forth from God to convince  the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ.  John 15:26; 16:8-11; Titus 3:5; I Thessalonians 5:23; Acts 9:31

We believe that Adam was created in innocence and by a voluntary transgression fell; that when Adam fell, mankind fell; that man is born with a sinful nature and spiritually dead; that he is totally depraved and unable to effect his own salvation. We believe that all men by nature and choice are sinners, but that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” We believe, therefore, that those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God. Romans 5:12; 3:23; John 3:16; Acts 4:12; Revelation 20:14-15

We believe in the Church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and of which all regenerated people are members. We believe that a local church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, immersed on a credible confession of faith, and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that to these local churches were committed, for perpetual observance, the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s supper, and that God has laid upon these churches the task of proclaiming to a lost world the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior, and the enthroning of Him as Lord and Master. We believe that all human betterment and social improvements are the inevitable by-products of such a Gospel. I Corinthians 12:12-13, 27; Ephesians 1:22; I Corinthians 1:2-9; Acts 2:41; Matthew 16:16-18; John 4:24; Ephesians 4:11-16; I Corinthians 11:23-30; Matthew 28:19-20; Romans 10:9-10; Exodus 20:2-3; Galatians 6:10; Romans 13:7-10

We believe that sanctification is positional in that one is established in a position of holiness at the moment he trusts Christ as Savior; that it is a process as the Holy Spirit applies the Word of God to the believer; that it is practical in that it is future when in heaven we will be delivered from all sin. (Romans 6-8, 12:1-2; I John 3:2)
We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in the finished work of Christ, by which work Christ fully satisfied the just demands of a holy and righteous God, and that believers are kept by the power of God. (Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans 4:5; Galatians 2:16; Romans 10:9-10, 13; I Peter 1:5)

We believe that there are two ordinances for the local church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper; that baptism is by single immersion for believers and is a prerequisite to the privileges of church membership; that the Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the Lord’s death until He comes again and should be preceded always by a solemn self-examination; and that these ordinances are to be performed only under the authority of the local church. (I Corinthians 11:23-31; Luke 22:17-23; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:40-41)

We believe that the Great Commission is a divine commandment for this age, and as such, primarily involves evangelism and church planting both at home and abroad. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)
We believe in the pre-tribulational and pre-millennial return of Christ; that after the rapture of the church there will be seven years of tribulation on earth; that this will be followed by the personal, visible return of Christ to put down His enemies and set up a thousand-years millennial reign; that at the end of this reign, Satan will be loosed for a season and then be cast into the lake of fire; that at this time the second resurrection for all unsaved will take place; that they will be judged at the Great White Throne and will be condemned to eternal torment in the Lake of Fire; that Christ will reign forever as King of Kings and Lord of Lords with the righteous eternally. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Matthew 24-25; Daniel 9:27; I Corinthians 15:51-58; Revelation 4-18; Revelation 19:11-21; Revelation 20:1-10; Revelation 20:11-15; Revelation 21-22.
