First Baptist Church, Justin, Texas

What We Believe

The one and true living God is the creator and sustainer of all things. He is infinite, unchangeable, eternal, perfect, sovereign, and personal. He is revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – three distinct persons but without division of nature or being.

Gen. 1.1; Deut. 6.4; Matthew 28.9; John 10.30

Jesus Christ is the second Person in the triune God, the eternal Word and Only Begotten Son. He was born of a virgin as both God and man, lived a sinless life, died to atone for the sins of human beings, was buried, arose from the grave on the third day, ascended into heaven and will return to earth.

Matt. 1.18-25; John 1.1; John 3.16; Phil. 2.6-10

The Holy Spirit is the divine helper, assistant, counselor, and instructor. His work is to reveal Christ, convict sin, lead to repentance, guide believers, comfort, strengthen, and sanctify the soul.

John 3.5; John 14.16; John 16.7-14; Eph. 1.13-14; Eph. 5.18

The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is wholly without error, altogether sufficient as our only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.

Psalm 119.105; 2 Tim. 3.16-17; Heb. 4.12

Human beings are the special creations of God, made in His image. We are ‘fallen’ through the sin of man first man, Adam, and all humans are sinners in need of salvation.

Gen. 1.27; Gen. 3.6; Rom. 3.23; Gal. 3.11

Salvation is a gift from God through faith in Jesus Christ, and every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven, while those who die in their sins will spend eternity in hell.

John 3.15-18; Rom. 10.9-10, 13; Eph. 2.8-9

Baptism is by immersion of believers thus portraying the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Matt. 28.19-20, Rom. 6.3-4

The Church is a local body of baptized believers wth the Lord Jesus Christ as the head.

Acts 2.37-47; Eph.5.23; Col. 1.18
