Faith Baptist Church

What We Believe

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Matthew 4:4 KJV

A Christ Centered Church

We preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. We do not preach ourselves but our Savior. His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, and miraculous resurrection.

An Independent Church

As a self-governing church, we have no synod, conference, presbytery or other form of human organization that exercise control over the local congregation.

A Bible Believing Church

We believe in the verbal inspiration and authority of the Scriptures. We believe that the Bible consists of only sixty-six books (Genesis through Revelation). We believe that God breathed the very words of Scripture (all of them) and superintended the men whom He chose in the process each had in writing the Scripture. We believe that God has preserved His Word in New Testament form in the manuscript text known as the Textus Receptus. We further believe that God has preserved His Word in Old Testament form in the manuscript text known as the Masoretic Text. Finally, we believe we have His preserved Word in the English language in the Bible known as the King James Version or Authorized Version (KJV).

Our conviction of Bible translation is rooted in two primary things: 1) Translation Source and 2) Translation Philosophy. Many source manuscripts used in modern Bible translations are not derived from the same source as the Authorized Version, which explains conflicting accounts, contradictory information. This has resulted in many words/verses being either partially or entirely omitted. We believe that an accurate translation source is critical to having a Bible that we can trust. We deny the idea that God's Word ONLY exists in the originals. Our conviction is that the Bible has been accurately and faithfully translated from the originals languages into English and that God has sovereignly preserved His word to the point that it could be translated and copied for His people to posses, even today.

Secondly, we believe that God inspired and preserved His literal words, not His mere "thoughts". The King James Bible is a "word-for-word" translation. This is distinct from a "thought-for-thought" or a "paraphrase" approach to Bible translation philosophy. We believe this is an important factor in Bible translation. A word-for-word translation gives the closest equivalent possible, from language to language. We believe that this difference in translation philosophy will impact the faithfulness of a translation. This distinction is important to us because we believe that each word from God is important and that an accurate Bible translation is not simply conveying the mere ideas of the Scriptures. God's promise was to preserve His words.

With these convictions at the forefront of our hearts and minds, we have concluded that the King James Version will be our sole authority for all purposes of reading and studying in English for our services. We understand that many great Christians have differing views and beliefs in regards to this topic; however, this is our belief and conviction. To conclude, we believe the Holy Scriptures are the final authority for our faith, life, and practice.

An Evangelistic Church

We maintain the goal of reaching the world with the good news of the Gospel. We do this through missions, personal evangelism, and various outreach ministries.


Verbal Inspiration of Scriptures 

We believe in the verbal inspiration and authority of the Scriptures. We believe the Scriptures reveal God, the fall of man, the way of salvation, and God’s plan and purpose in the age. 


We believe in one God, revealed in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.


We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, and the bodily resurrection.


We believe that salvation is by grace and grace alone and that the conditions to salvation is repentance from unbelief to faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour. We believe that salvation is a free choice of an individual and that “whosoever” chooses to put their trust in Christ can be saved.

Eternal Security 

We believe in the eternal security of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. A person who is born again has everlasting life, which never ends and cannot be taken away.

Heaven and Hell

We believe that Heaven and Hell are real, literal, and physical places. We believe that Heaven is a place of indescribable beauty and glory; whereas, Hell is a place of literal fire, eternal torment, and punishment.


We believe that the Scriptures teach that we as Christians are to live separate from the world in regards to worldly pleasures, dress, conduct, and way of life. We believe in being separated from ungodliness and separated for the Lord for service. We believe it is important for our to abstain from anything that mars one’s Christian testimony or brings shame to the cause of Christ in any way.

Rapture and Second Coming

We believe in the visible, personal, pre-tribulation and pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ.
