How Baptists and Presbyterians view Jesus

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Baptist View on Jesus
– Baptists believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the Savior of the world. They emphasize the personal relationship with Jesus and place a strong emphasis on the individual’s decision to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.

Presbyterian View on Jesus
– Presbyterians also believe in Jesus as the Son of God and the Savior of the world. They emphasize the sovereignty of God and believe in predestination, which means that God has already chosen who will be saved through Jesus Christ.

– While both Baptists and Presbyterians believe in the divinity and saving power of Jesus, their views on the role of personal choice and God’s sovereignty in salvation are different. Baptists emphasize the individual’s decision to accept Jesus, while Presbyterians emphasize God’s predestined plan for salvation.

Bible Verses About Jesus


– John 1:1 – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” This verse emphasizes the divinity of Jesus, a key belief in Baptist theology.

– John 14:6 – “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” This verse highlights the Baptist belief in salvation through faith in Jesus alone.

– Philippians 2:5-8 – “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!” This passage emphasizes the humility and sacrificial nature of Jesus, a central theme in Baptist theology.


– Colossians 1:15-20 – “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” This passage emphasizes the role of Jesus in creation and in reconciling all things to God, reflecting Presbyterian beliefs in God’s sovereignty and reconciliation through Christ.

– John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” This verse speaks to the Presbyterian emphasis on God’s love and the belief in salvation through faith in Jesus.

– Hebrews 4:14-16 – “Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” This passage highlights the role of Jesus as a high priest who empathizes with human weaknesses, which is a key aspect of Presbyterian theology.
