Doctrinal Statement:  The SMBBS is committed to the biblical doctrines of the Baptist faith as historically held throughout the centuries by Bible believing Christians: This includes the infallibility of the Scriptures as originally given by the inspiration of God and perfectly preserved in the KJV as the sole and final authority for English speaking peoples in all matters of faith and practice;  the triunity of the One God Who exists as the Persons of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost; the direct Genesis account of the creation and fall of man as opposed to any form of evolution; the Deity, virgin birth, sinlessness, vicarious death and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ; the total depravity of man, his absolute need of regeneration by the Holly Spirit; the all-sufficiency of Christ's death who died for all men, and for our salvation which is received by faith alone, the eternal security and the permanent indwelling of the Holy Spirit in every believer today, the founding of the local, visible church by Christ which was labeled as Anabaptist during persecutions, the personal, imminent, pre-millennial, re-tribulation rapture, and in the return of Christ in glory and power,& a literal heaven and hell.  . . . We teach in the literal interpretation of Scripture, that the KJV is the preserved, inerrant, plenary, and infallible Word of God, that the Hebrew Maseretic Text and the Greek Textus Receptus are the manuscripts God preserved, that the Wescott and Hort family of manuscripts are corrupt, that Christ died for ALL men, that God's election was based on His foreknowledge, that whosoever will may be saved, that Christ established His church before Pentecost, that this church was labeled "Anabaptist" thru persecution, and that "Anabaptists" are the forerunners of many Baptists today. We reject theistic evolution, neo-orthodoxy, higher criticism, Pentecostalism, hyper-Calvinism, charismatic bondage breaking, and easy-believism, and are conservative in worship, separated in standard, Biblical in teaching, missionary in motive, sincere in service, honest in character and peaceful in living. 
Code of Ethics:  No school faculty is permitted to visit or make offers to any student which may benefit their own church or ours. Our school will not enroll, teach or graduate any student without their pastor's approval, nor will we know-ingly contradict a pastor's teachings before his students. The pastor's office will be kept in high regard and if a difference exists, we will seek to solve it personally without involving his students. We will only use the KJV as our authoritive text, & any references to other translations will be for the purpose of exposing their errors, or for confirming a truth already established by the superior KJV Bible.
