What we believe

First Baptist Church is submissive to the lordship of Jesus Christ. Who He is and what He has accomplished is the centerpiece of our faith and life. He is our head and His Word is the sole authority of our faith and practice. The 66 books of the Old and New Testament are the only basis for our beliefs. We are devoted to the proclamation and protection of His Word.
