Baptist Beliefs: Our Baptist Beliefs at FGBC

This is a summary of our Baptist beliefs:

We believe that the King James Bible is the word of God without error.

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith. Being born again by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ is the only requirement for salvation.

We believe in the eternal security of the believer (once saved, always saved).

We believe in baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. 

We believe that the unsaved will spend eternity in torment in a literal hell.

We believe that Jesus is God, and that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the virgin Mary. We believe that God consists of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and that these three are one (1 John 5:7). The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are three distinct persons (John 1:1, 1 Corinthians 15:27-28, John 8:16-18, John 17:5). This doctrine is commonly known as the trinity. We reject the heresy of modalism or so-called “oneness.”

We reject the teaching of Calvinism. Instead, we  believe that God wants everyone to be saved.

We believe that the rapture will take place after the tribulation but before God pours out his wrath on this earth. We reject dispensationalism.

We believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.  We reject same-sex, same-gender marriage.

Thank you for reading our summary of our Baptist beliefs.

  1. If you reject same sex relationships or marriage than you’re not a true Christian. God’s word says no sin is worse than another as well as turn the other cheek. God’s love is unconditional no matter whom you choose to be with. As a Baptist preachers kid growing up I no longer attend church now because of how judgemental religions can be.. and I’ll be in heaven when I die because I believe the Bible when is says God loves everyone…all sinners are saved by his grace.
