STATEMENT OF FAITH
The following information simply summarizes what we believe as a church family. We believe the Bible is the Word of God, and teach it to be perfectly true. Every belief and teaching of Fellowship Baptist Church flows from God's Word. For a more detailed account and description of our doctrine, feel free to request a doctrinal statement from the church office.
The Bible is God's love letter, God's Holy Word, inerrant, infallible and preserved for us today in the King James Bible. Its truth is eternal and its message is relevant for today.
THE ONE AND ONLY LIVING GOD
God exists in three distinct persons who are the same in nature but distinctive in functions: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The eternal Son of God was born of a virgin, literally rose from the dead and ascended to heaven, is undiminished deity and perfect humanity permanently united in one person. It was through His sacrificial death on the cross that He removed once and for all the barrier of sin between God and man.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, yet he is fallen in his sinfulness.
Salvation is the unearned gift from God to anyone who will receive in dependence the provision that Christ's death, burial and resurrection is the sufficient and necessary requirement for eternal life.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is a person who permanently indwells every believer from the moment of salvation. He provides every believer with gifts for service and with the fullness of God's power to make him adequate for living. As a person acts in dependence upon the Spirit, he will progressively grow into maturity.
THE LOCAL CHURCH
The local church is an assembly of baptized believers who voluntarily join themselves together to carry out the great command of Jesus Christ found in Matthew 28:18-20.
Ordinances are to be observed commemorating Christ's works for the church: Baptism and the Lord's Table. Baptism is practiced by individuals as a symbolic expression of personal identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. The Lord's Table is practiced corporately as a symbolic reminder of His provision for salvation for each believer.
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
We believe in the pre-millennial pre-tribulation rapture of Jesus Christ. We believe Christ will rapture the church before the tribulation and will return with those who are saved for the final battle after the tribulation.
Everything at Our Church is geared around our mission of "Leading to Love God, Growing together as believers, and Equipping Christians to impact their world." It is our desire to carry out the Great Command and the focus of every ministry is to see souls saved and lives changed.
The Pastor of our church leads by example. He sets the vision and spiritual tone of the church.
