What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Essential Beliefs

The following are the essential beliefs of Faith Baptist Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


We believe in one God, maker of heaven and earth, and eternally existent as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Genesis 1:31)


We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, and in His miracles, His substitutionary death on the cross through His shed blood for mankind and paid for the sins of the world. He rose bodily from the grave, ascended into heaven, and will return to earth in power and glory. (John 1:1-3,14; Matthew 1:18-25; Philippians 2:5-9; Colossians 1:15; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, Acts 1:11)

Holy Spirit

We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit, that His present work is to reveal Jesus Christ to people, to regenerate those who believe, and that He indwells Christians to mediate the life of Jesus Christ in them. (John 14:16-19; 16:7-15; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Romans 8:9,11; Titus 3:5; Eph. 4:11-16)


We believe people were created in the image of God. Through Adam all people obtained a sin nature which produces sin. Because of sin, all people in their natural condition are separated from God and are under the wrath and condemnation of God. Since God created mankind into genders distinctly male and female, we believe that the only legitimate marriage is that between a man and a woman. He has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage. We believe that God disapproves and forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender by surgery or appearance. (Gen. 1:26; 2:24; 19:5,13; 26:8-9; Lev. 18:1-30; Isaiah 59:2; Rom. 1:26-29; 3:23; 7:2; 1 Cor. 5:1; 6:9; 7:1; Eph. 5:22-23; I Thess. 4:1-8; Heb. 13:4).


We believe people may be saved from the wrath of God, be forgiven of sin, be justified by the righteousness of Jesus Christ, and be reconciled to God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and are eternally secure in Him. This salvation is a free gift of God’s grace to all who believe. (Ephesians 1:4; 2:8-10; Romans 8:28-30; 10:9-10,13; 2 Peter 3:9, John 3:16; 10:29-30; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 5:11-13)


We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost: they that are saved to the resurrection of life in Heaven, and they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation in Hell. (John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15)

The Church

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ. We believe the church, as a local body, was commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ to make disciples of all nations. We believe the two ordinances in the church are baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper and are representations of the Lord’s death and resurrection for the believer. (Matthew 16:18; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25; Matthew 26:26-29; 28:18-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32)
