About Hanes Baptist Church
We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Scriptures (both Old and New Testaments) and that "... all Scripture is given by inspiration of God" (ll Timothy 3:16,17).
We believe that the original autographs are without error because of the work of the Holy Spirit as He moved each man to record the words of God (II Peter 1:19-21).
We believe that Jesus Christ is God (John 10:30; 20:31) and that He is eternal (John 1:1,2).
We believe that when Jesus Christ came to take on the form of man (Philippians 2:6-8) that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:20-23). We believe that He lived a sinless life (II Corinthians 5:21) and that He provided the necessary atonement, vicariously, for our sins by the "sacrifice of Himself" (Isaiah 53:4-6; Hebrews 9:26; I Corinthians 15:3). And most important, we believe that after He died and was buried that "He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" (I Corinthians 15:4).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God and indwells every believer (I Corinthians 6:19; Romans 8:9).
We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement (John 16:8); that He is active in the new birth (John 3: 5,6); that He testifies of Christ (John 15:26); that He seals the believer unto the day of redemption (Ephesians 4:30) and that He makes intercession for believers (Romans 8:26). We believe that man hinders the Holy Spirit in having all of himself, due to sin. Therefore, it is essential for man to be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18) or controlled by the Spirit by keeping sin confessed and walking in the light (I John 1:6,7). Being filled with the Spirit is not the same as speaking in tongues, which we believe ceased, along with the other sign gifts, at the completion of the Word of God (I Corinthians 13:8; 13:10).
The Hanes Baptist Church had a humble beginning in 1910, in a grove of trees behind the Hanes Company Office on Stratford Road. The meeting place moved to one of the residences in the village. The Hanes Company owned a wood frame schoolhouse, but later built a brick one, and gave the wooden structure to be renovated and used as a Church.
Unfortunately, in the late 1940's, during a weekly radio broadcast, the Church building burned. The cause of the fire was never determined and no one was injured. The Hanes Company, once again, accommodated the membership and allowed them to meet in the newer schoolhouse. Two years later, the Company built the brick Church located in Hanes on Harvey Street, and gave it to the membership. Later, an educational wing was added, and also a Fellowship Hall.
The residences that made up the Hanes cotton mill village were sold for businesses, and very few of the members lived in the community. Convenient parking became scarce. The Church decided to relocate, and purchased a 13-acre tract of land on Sabrina Lake Road.
In 2002, the Church on Harvey Street was placed on the Real Estate market and later sold. Another Church building was rented until the current Family Life Center was completed in early 2007. Since moving into the new Center, we have experienced much growth – many new members and many visitors. Outreaches have been expanded, and new growth is enjoyed in every area. In October of 2010, our new sanctuary was completed.
The Hanes Baptist Church had a humble beginning, but we have a brilliant future – all because of God's "Amazing Grace". Visit with us and live our next history making endeavor... expanding our parking as well as adding a balcony.
