Faith Baptist Church

Church Doctrine
We believe:
  • The original Scripture is the inspired Word of God, absolutely authoritative and infallible.

  • There is one God, eternally existing in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

  • In the virgin birth and deity of Jesus Christ, who is God the Son.

  • That Jesus died on the cross for our sins, rose from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and is coming again to take His own to a prepared place.

  • That man was created in innocence but fell in Adam, and is totally unable to save himself.

  • That Satan is a person, Hell is a place of eternal punishment of all unsaved; and Heaven is the eternal home of believers.

  • That men are justified on the single grounds of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

  • In the eternal security of the believer.

  • That the Holy Spirit is a person, who convicts and regenerates the sinner, indwells, enlightens, empowers and seals the saved.

  • That a New Testament Church is an organized body of baptized believers practicing Scriptural ordinances and actively engaged in fulfilling the Great Commission.

  • That Christ instituted the ordinances of Baptism by immersion, and the Lord's Supper is to be observed by obedient Christians, until He comes.

  • That all saved are called into a life of separation from all worldly and sinful practices.

  • It is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and word to these truths and to proclaim the gospel to all the world.
