God's mission for us is to meet people where they are and empower them to live as world-changing followrs of jesus christ.
Our Belief :
First Baptist Church believes that there is room for diversity of opinion among the body of Christ, and does not expect that every person will think exactly the same on every issue. However, on Christian essentials we are agreed. These include...
- That the Bible is the very word of God and the final authority on what we believe and how we are to live our lives.
- That Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, the perfect expression of God, and the one and only way to Him. He lived a sinless life, died a perfect death for the sins of the world, and rose again on the third day.
- That all men and women have sinned and fallen short of God's expectations and are therefore separated from Him, and completely unable on their own, to bridge that distance.
- That Jesus Christ died as a substitute sacrifice for our sins, and those of the whole world, and anyone who will turn and accept Him by faith can experience reconciliation with God and forgiveness without exception.
