We affirm the Bible as the inerrant Word of God and as our only basis for our beliefs. This body accepts the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000. We voluntarily unite ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation by grace with all mankind. (from Capron Baptist Church Constitution, Article 3. Statement of Faith)
The Church is autonomous and maintains the right to govern its own affairs, independent of any denominational control. Recognizing however, the benefits of cooperation with other churches in world missions and ministries, this Church voluntarily affiliates with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), and the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia (SBCV).

CONSTITUTION CAPRON BAPTIST CHURCH
Article 5. CHURCH COVENANT
Having been, as we trust, brought by divine grace to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ, and to give ourselves wholly to Him, we do now solemnly and joyfully covenant with each other to walk together in Him, with brotherly love to His glory, as our common Lord. We do therefore, in His strength, affirm that we will exercise a Christian care and watchfulness over each other, faithfully warn, exhort, and admonish each other as occasion may require. We will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, but will uphold the public worship of God and the ordinances of His house. That we will not omit personal and family religion at home, nor neglect the great duty of religiously training our children and those under our care, for the service of Christ and the enjoyment of Heaven. That as we are the light of the world and the salt of the earth, we will seek divine aid to enable us to deny ungodliness and every worldly lust, and to walk circumspectly in the world, that we may win the souls of men. That we will cheerfully contribute of our property according as God has prospered us, for the maintenance of a faithful and evangelical ministry among us, for the support of the poor, and to spread the gospel over the earth. That we will in all conditions, even till death, strive to live to the glory of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. And may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make us perfect in every good work to do His will, working in us that which is well pleasing in His sight through Jesus Christ to whom be the glory, forever and ever. Amen
