What Do We Believe?
First Baptist Church is a family of believers who holds dear to the following beliefs:
God – We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus – We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.
Christ’s Return – We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.
Holy Spirit – We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide who lives in every believer.
Bible – We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.
Man – We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, man fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.
Salvation - We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Assurance - We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
