California Southern Baptists do not have a creed, but look instead to the Bible as their guide to faith and practice. Baptists accept the Scriptures as the source of doctrine. Statements of faith occasionally are adopted by Baptist groups, but they are not binding on members and are not intended to be used to hamper freedom of thought or investigation of truth. There is a wide diversity of Baptist beliefs.

Southern Baptists have prepared a statement of generally held convictions called The Baptist Faith and Message. It serves as a guide to understanding who we are and speaks to the following topics:

  • The Scriptures
  • God
  • God the Father
  • God the Son
  • God the Holy Spirit
  • Man
  • Salvation
  • God's Purpose of Grace
  • The Church
  • Baptism and the Lord's Supper
  • The Lord's Day
  • The Kingdom
  • Last Things
  • Evangelism and Mission
  • Education
  • Stewardship
  • Cooperation
  • The Christian and Social Order
  • Peace and War
  • Religious Liberty
  • The Family
