We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God
and the basis for our beliefs. This church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of the Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963. We accept fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God. We believe in the One Triune God, manifested as God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. We have been a presence in Chaparral since 1973, and hope to be always a blessing in, and to the Community of Chaparral.
I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from the Savior of the world in communicated to us through this book.
The Bible is stamped with a Specialty of Origin, and an immeasurable distance separates it from all competitors.

The whole hope of human progress is suspended on the ever growing influence of the Bible.
W. H. Seward

All human discoveries seem to be made only for the purpose of confirming more and more strongly the truths contained in the Sacred Scriptures.

In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.
Robert E. Lee
Bible reading is an education in itself.
So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it, the more confident will by my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society.
John Quincy Adams
That book (the Bible), sir, is the rock on which our republic stands.
The existence of the Bible, as a book for the people, is the greatest benefit which the human race has ever experienced. Every attempt to belittle it is a crime against humanity.
Whatever merit there is in anything that I have written is simply due to the fact that when I was a child my mother daily read me a part of the Bible and daily made me learn a part of it by heart.
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Proverbs 14:12, 16:25, Holy Bible
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
