"To be and to make fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ"


What  We  Believe
(FSBC Statement of Faith)

We believe the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and that it is the record of Godís revelation of Himself to man, and that it is without error.

We believe in the only true God, and that he exists in three persons Ė Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Ė with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, Godís only begotten Son, His virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial atoning death for our sins, His bodily resurrection, and His personal, literal, imminent return.

We believe that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life, by direct act, not by the process of evolution.

We believe that hell is a real place and that Satan is a real person.

We believe that heaven is a real place and that one must receive Jesus Christ as personal Savior in order to go there.

We believe that man in his natural state can in no way save himself no matter how good his intentions.  God, however, has provided a way for all people to be saved by grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, and that it is a free gift of God.

We believe in righteous living and good works, not as the means of salvation, but as its evidence and fruit.

We believe in the autonomy of the local church and practice the ordinances of Baptism and the Lordís Supper.

We believe in giving our tithes and offerings to and through the local church to support local and world evangelism.

We believe evangelism is the responsibility and privilege of every member of the local church.
