​St. Matthew's Baptist Church of Harlem

What We  Believe


 Mission Statement


 The St. Matthew's Baptist Church has

been  called together by God to

Equip our  Community,

Elevate our Heritage, Educate  our People

and Exalt our Savior, Jesus Christ.


   We believe God to be the Creator and Sustainer of life. (Gen. 1:1)

   We believe that the Bible is the living & authoritative Word of God and our manual for life.

   (2 Peter 1:19-21)

   We believe Jesus to be our resurrected Savior from sin and oppression. (Matt. 1:21; Acts 4:10-12)

   We believe The Holy Spirit to be our Intercessor and Comforter.(John 14:15-17, 25-26; Romans 8:26)

   We believe that the Church is a Human Institution with a Divine Mission. (1 Corinthians 1:31)

   We believe in Baptism by total immersion. While we are not saved by baptism, we are obedient to    the command of Jesus (Matt. 28:19) and his example (Matt. 3:16). It is an outward demonstration of      an inward transformation.

   We believe that Christ is coming back and that we will see him face to face. (1 Corinthians 13:12-13)
