The Bible is our Key!
At First Baptist Church, God’s truth, revealed to us through the Bible, determines what we believe. We also recognize that there are essential beliefs and non-essential beliefs, so we operate according to the following guidelines:
In essential beliefs—we have agreement and UNITY
“There is one Body and one Spirit...there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all…” Ephesians 4:4-6
In non-essential beliefs—we have freedom and LIBERTY
“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters...Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls...So then each of us will give an account of himself to God...So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.” Romans 14: 1,4,12,22
In all our beliefs, we show LOVE...
“...If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains—but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” 1 Corinthians 13:2 (Phillips)
We are a biblically-focused church, basing our faith and practice upon God’s Word… the Bible. You are welcome to explore our full Confession of Faith.
