What We Believe

First Baptist Church is in agreement with the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message.
 
In short, we believe…
  • The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God. It is our sole norm of faith and practice.
  • God is Spirit, infinite, personal, eternal; and unchangeable in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, grace, goodness and truth.
  • Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins.
  • Jesus was physically resurrected to purchase a place in heaven for us, which He offers as a free gift, providing the only way of salvation for all men.
  • The Holy Spirit indwells the heart of every Christian and empowers us through His filling, His anointing and His gifts.
  • The Trinity consists of three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – in one God.
  • God created man in His own image and in a state of innocence, but that through temptation man willfully transgressed. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and the wages for their sin is death.
  • The church’s primary mission is to preach the gospel to all the world, reaching non-believers and discipling them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
  • A true believer is secure in Christ forever and is called to live a holy life.
  • The ordinances of the church are believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper.
  • Our Lord Jesus Christ will physically return to this earth and rule for one thousand years prior to the establishment of His new kingdom.
  • After the final judgment those who are believers shall live forever in the presence of God, and those who have rejected Christ will be separated from God in a place of eternal torment.
