First Baptist Christian School

Statement of Faith

We believe:

1.  The Holy Bible is inspired by God, completely infallible and inerrant, and is the authoritative word of God; therefore, it is the basis on which education stems.   (1 Peter 1:21)

2.  One God is eternally existent in three person:  God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  (Gen. 1:1)

3.  God created man in his own image.  When man brought sin into the world a renewing of the mind was required for man to transform into God's image.  God created all of creation by His direct act, no evolution.  (1 Cor. 3:18, Col. 3:10; Gen. 1:26-27)

4.  God is omnipotent.  God is sinless, and through His Son, Jesus, gave a sinless example of life on earth by which we should pattern our own lives.  Miracles occurred through Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, Mary.  Jesus Christ died to save us from our certain death.  Jesus Christ arose and ascended to Heaven to serve and live at the right hand of God, the Father.  God will return to earth in the form of His Son, once again.  (Rev. 19:11)

5.  God desires His believers to join together in Christian love an spiritual unity in the name of Jesus Christ.  It is our duty to promote harmony.  (Ps. 133)

6.  God lives within each and every Christian; He enables us to live as He would have us live.  (Rom. 8:11-13)

7.  Adam and Eve yielded to the temptation of Satan and became fallen creatures.  All men are born in sin.  Salvation is based upon our belief in Jesus Christ and through faith, knowing that He, God's Son, died on Calvary's cross so that we may have everlasting life through Him.  Upon this faith and belief, we may be spiritually born again by God's grace.  (John 3:16)

8.  Baptism by immersion represents the act of death to the old life, burial, and resurrection into the new life of Christ, which was the example Jesus Christ gave us.  Therefore when we accept, by faith and belief, Jesus Christ, we follow His example of baptism by immersion.  (Rom. 6:4-5)

9.  Each learner should hear how to come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and to be challenged to meet life with God given character traits.  (Mt. 18:14)
