About Arapaho Road

In community. On mission.
We are a church in north Dallas that is
In community and On mission to share Christ's love with others.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

The Bible
We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.

The Trinity
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three personsFather, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Person and Work of Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He is completely God and completely man. He lived a sinless life, and he died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Father, He now is our High Priest and Advocate.

The Holy Spirit
We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict people, give life to the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.

People and Sin
We believe that people were created in the image of God but fell into sin and are therefore separated from God both physically and spiritually and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

Salvation
We believe in salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ’s substitutionary payment for our sins, not based on human merit, works, or religious ceremony. We believe that anyone who has placed their faith in Christ is eternally secure, has everlasting life, will not come into condemnation, and shall never perish. We believe that assurance comes to the believer from three primary sources: trusting the Word of God’s promises, the witness of the Holy Spirit, and a persevering walk with the Lord.

The Church
We believe in the church, both universally and locally, as the spiritual body of which Christ is the Head, and in the practices of water baptism by immersion of believers and the Lord’s Supper as the ordinances of the local church.

The Great Commission
We believe that those whom God has saved are sent into the world by Christ as He was by the Father. Those so sent are ambassadors, commissioned to go make disciples and make Christ known to the whole world. We also believe that everyone should have an opportunity to examine the facts about Christ and have an opportunity to make an intelligent decision about Him.

Eternity
We believe in the physical resurrection of the human body (at the second coming of Christ); in the eternal conscious existence of all individuals in either heaven or hell; and in the rewards of the saved and the punishment of the lost for eternity.

HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER
The four ways that Arapaho Road Baptist Church receives people into their membership are:

  • By profession of faith in Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior and as a candidate for baptism.

  • As a Christian from another denomination and a candidate for baptism.

  • By letter from another Baptist church.

  • By statement if you are a former Baptist or were baptized by immersion.

At the conclusion of each worship service, an opportunity is provided for people to join the church in one of these four ways. If you have questions that you would like to discuss with one of our staff members, please call the church office at 972-495-2223.
