There are many ways that Champion Fellowship stands in agreement with Southern Baptists and the greater evangelical world. However, for CF, there are specific doctrinal distinctives that make our church unique to the larger Christian family.  While these beliefs are consistent with conservative doctrine, they are becoming more rare in today’s society. Several of the distinctives are as follows:


  • CF teaches that the 66 books of the Bible are the only source of authority concerning God’s revelation of Himself and His will, and that the revelation of the Bible is complete and sufficient in all matters.

  • CF teaches a verbal plenary inspiration of the Bible. Every word of the original manuscripts is important to proper doctrinal interpretation and is inerrant in all matters.

  • CF uses a literal approach to interpretation of Scripture.  Unless obviously shown otherwise, the words of the text mean what words in that context would normally mean.

  • CF teaches a dispensational approach to understanding God’s revelation.  God has revealed Himself to man in such a way that not all Scripture is equally applicable to all men.  For example, those in the church age are not obligated to the Law of the Old Testament.

  • CF teaches a pre-tribulation rapture of the church.  Those truly saved will be raptured out of this world prior to the beginning of the Tribulation.

  • CF teaches a distinction between Israel and the church.  The church has not replaced Israel; God’s plan for Israel remains intact.

  • CF believes that the Kingdom of God is to be established physically on earth at the Second Coming of Christ.  The Millennial reign is the Kingdom of God.

  • CF believes that churches should be doctrinally, not practically driven. Pragmatics change, doctrine must never change.
