At Heritage Baptist Church (HBC) - McConnellstown, we hold true to a set of fundamental beliefs
that the Bible teaches us.


The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:19-21


In one God eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I John 5:7; II Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:18-19.

Virgin Birth

That Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is both God and Man. Matthew 1:18-22; Luke 1:35.

Holy Spirit

That the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity who convicts the world of sin, regenerates, indwells, enlightens, and guides believers. John 14:16-17; John 3:18.

We are all sinners

That man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became separated from God, and that man is totally corrupt, and of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. Romans 5:12; Romans 3:22-23.

Shed Blood

That the Lord Jesus Christ died for the sins of everyone, according to the Scripture, as a representative and a substitute sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His Shed Blood. Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 2:24.


In the resurrection of His physical body and His ascension into Heaven, and in His present Life there for us, as High Priest and advocate. Romans 8:34; I John 2:1-2.

Born Again

That all who receive by Faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God. Luke 13:3; John 3:3; John 3:36; John 3:18.

The Church

The church, which is composed of all true believers, is the body of Christ through regeneration and baptism by the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 5:24,25&30; I Corinthians 12:12.

Second Coming

The Imminent return of the Lord, which is the blessed hope of the church, is to be followed by the tribulation, the second coming of Christ to establish His kingdom for one thousand years, the eternal state of punishment for the unsaved and the eternal state of blessing for the saved. Titus 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Thessalonians 5:4-10; Revelation 20:1-6; Revelation 20:11-15; Matthew 25:46.
