             together

First Baptist Church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. In joining with other churches in the SBC and SBTC, FBC is able to participate in and support missions worldwide. 


Here is a brief list of our core beliefs: 

 

The Bible is the inerrant Word of God and has absolute authority. 

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

When Jesus came to earth, He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.

Jesus is fully God and fully man. 

Jesus died, was resurrected, ascended into Heaven and will return to power and glory.

Everyone will face the judgment of Christ. People without Christ will be consigned to hell. People   

           who have a relationship with Christ will dwell forever in heaven. 

Upon genuine conversion, the believer receives the Holy Spirit and is eternally secure.

The local church is called to worship, evangelize, and make disciples.
