About Us

Who we are...

Marsh Lane Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church sharing the gospel with Dallas and the world since 1936.  Our desire is to present Christ in a contemporary, creative, and yet incredible way, in an environment where people can grow to their full potential in Christ while carrying the ministry of the local church into the world.

What we believe...

We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, and that it is the final authority for daily living.  (II Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe in a sovereign God who created, sustains, and rules His universe.  He is one triune God personified as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (I Corinthians 8:6)
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, and sinless life.  He died in our place for our sins, physically rose again, and will return to earth to set up His kingdom.  (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25, 20:28, 28:2-6; Hebrews 4:15; I Thessalonians 4:14-17)
We believe that all men are condemned because of personal sin, and that apart from the grace of Jesus Christ, there is no escape from that condemnation.  (Romans 3:10-12, 3:23, 8:1; Ephesians 2:8-9)
We believe that all who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior are given the power to become children of God, and are to live godly lives through total submission to Him as Lord.  (John1:12, Colossians 3:1-2)
We believe in the resurrection of all mankind: the saved to eternal life and fellowship with God, the lost to everlasting condemnation and separation from God.  (II Corinthians 5:8; I Thessalonians 4:14-18; Matthew 7:23; John 5:25-29
