Each week we endeavor to learn, to grow, and to serve the Lord. If we will accomplish successfully our weekly challenges we must be committed to our 3-fold Biblical purpose which has proven to be historically and distinctively Baptist.
We will gladly and by God’s grace acknowledge and exalt the Head of the church, our Saviour and God, the Lord Jesus Christ including the infallible, authoritative Word of God. (Matthew 16:18; 1Corinthians 3:11; Colossians 1:12-29).
Our faith is anchored in the Bible, God’s Holy Word. At First Baptist we believe the Bible is the verbally inspired and infallible, authoritative Word of God; that it is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. We further believe that God has wonderfully preserved His Word in its smallest detail so that we might have His standard by which to live for His glory. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 24:35).
We believe the ordinances of the church are Christian baptism and the Lord’s Table.
Loving God. Loving People.
