About

Enon Baptist Church:  Changing Lives and Uniting a Community

Located at 6321 Old Highway 421 on the corner of Yadkinville Road and Flint Hill Road in East Bend, North Carolina, Enon Baptist Church is at the heart of the Enon community.

Through the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the study and teaching of God’s Word, worship services dedicated to the glorification and magnification of God, and a desire to help and support those in physical and spiritual need, Enon aims to reach out and unite our surrounding community in fellowship and love, making welcome all those who may come our way.

 

Our Statement of Faith:

The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the basis for any statement of faith.  The church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000.  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.

 

Our Affiliations:

We recognize that there is a mutual helpfulness in the association of churches who are in such agreement in faith and practice as to encourage the spirit of fellowship and good will.  We also recognize that there have been devised, through the voluntary cooperation of churches of like faith and order, organizations whose purpose it is to implement the missionary, educational, and benevolent interests and obligations of the individual Christian and his/her church family.

Believing that the Yadkin Baptist Association, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, and the Southern Baptist Convention are organizations, which have as their sole purpose the promotion and support of missions, education, and benevolence, the church, therefore, shall participate in these organizations through our duly-elected messengers and our support of the causes which these organizations represent.

 

Our Purpose:

  • Preach and teach the good news of Jesus Christ.
  • Minister to those we meet each day.
  • Practice forgiveness inside and outside the walls of our church.

 

Our Beliefs:  Church Doctrine

Enon Baptist Church, as a company of believers, voluntarily united for the purposes of worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and the world wide proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, embraces and supports, along with other Christian tenets equally or comparably vital, these doctrinal emphases:

  • The divine inspiration, supremacy and authority of the Scriptures.  The Bible is true and without error.
  • The deity and humanity, virgin birth and sinless substitutional death and bodily resurrections, ascension and premillennial coming of Jesus Christ.
  • Likewise, the sovereignty of God.
  • The total depravity of all men.
  • The necessity of regeneration.
  • Creator God sent His only Son to die on the cross for the sin of the world.
  • Trusting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to be saved.
  • Scriptural believer’s baptism as prerequisite to church membership.
  • All who believe have a spiritual gift to be used through the local church.
  • The Lord’s Supper administered by the local church.
  • The local church as an autonomous body, separated from the world.
  • The doctrine of the Trinity as historically and scripturally maintained.
  • The rapture of the church as the Christian’s hope.
  • The resurrection of the body of all Christians concurrent with the rapture.
  • The earth wide reign of Jesus Christ.
  • An ultimate judgment of the impenitent.
  • A heaven of eternal duration for the saved, and the eternal punishment in a place named “Hell” for the lost.
  • We believe Jesus Christ has changed our life.

 

Our Commitment:  Church Covenant

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.

We engage therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings; faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s word.

The Enon Covenant is a commitment based on the Lordship of Christ and our desire to serve Him.  Its basic structure is not a legalistic contract, but it is one of love and trust within the membership of the body of Christ.

The strength of our church to accomplish her mission is dependent upon the commitment and good faith of every member.  Your church will only be as strong as your commitment to the ministry and the objectives stated below.

 

Our Objectives:

OBJECTIVE 1:  Affirm the Lordship of Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ should be first, central and preeminent in every program, ministry and activity of the Enon Baptist Church family.

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.  – Colossians 1:18

OBJECTIVE 2:  Proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ

We believe the primary ministry of our church is the sharing of the Good News of Jesus Christ with lost persons throughout the world.

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.   Amen.  – Matthew 28:18-20

OBJECTIVE 3:  Edify the Body of Jesus Christ

We affirm that Enon Baptist Church should continuously develop edifying programs, ministries, and activities that promote the worship of God, and speak to the nurturing and fellowship needs of the body of Christ.

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.  – Hebrews 10:23-35

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; 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:  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.  – Ephesians 4:11-15

OBJECTIVE 4:  Share the Compassion of Jesus Christ

We believe we are called to speak to human need with the compassion of Christ.

For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.  – Matthew 25:35-36
