Beliefs

Farmington Baptist Church Beliefs

 
GOD - we believe that there is one God who reveals Himself who exists in three
persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
JESUS - We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of the
virgin, Mary, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died
in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried,
arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.

CHRIST's RETURN - We believe that Jesus Christ will literally
return to earth.

HOLY SPIRIT - We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in
convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the
Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.

BIBLE - We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error,the
sole authority for life and faith.

MAN - We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image,
 but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.

SALVATION - We believe that Salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God
and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

ASSURANCE - We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
ETERNITY - We believe that those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend
eternity in Heaven.

BAPTISM - We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by
immersion after salvation.

CHURCH - We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as
the Head.

PRAYER - We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
GOVERNMENT - We believe in the separation of church and state, but not in separation of God and
government.  Christians are salt and light in society.
