At First Baptist Church, 

  • We believe in God the Father, who exists as Sovereign over all creation, both known and unknown.

  • We believe God to be merciful, compassionate, forgiving, just and holy.

  • We believe God demands and deserves all that we are and have. This includes our time, our resources, our obedience, our reverence and our worship.

  • We believe that God has revealed Himself in creation, but also in the pages of the Bible which we believe to be His inerrant, infallible Word. 

  • We believe the Bible stands alone as God's written revelation of Himself.

  • We believe God revealed Himself fully in the person of Jesus Christ, His Son, sent to earth to reveal His greatness, goodness, and glory.

  • We believe all people are sinners and stand in need of salvation.

  • We believe God loves all people in spite of their sin. 

  • We believe God's fullest expression of that love was when He entered the world in the person of Jesus Christ and suffered death on a cross as a substitute for sinners. 

  • We believe Jesus Christ is our only hope and that salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and to surrender to Him as Lord. 

  • We believe in heaven as the home of those who place their faith in Christ and hell as the final abode for those who reject Him. 

  • We believe Jesus Christ will return to earth, in keeping with His promise, and the time of Christ's return draws nearer with each passing day. 

  • Until He comes, we believe we are to live in anxious expectation, and diligent preparation for His coming. In keeping with Scripture, we invite persons from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation to join us in worshipful waiting for His glorious return.
