What We Believe

Welcome to Farmington’s First Baptist Church. Reflecting Jesus is not just a tag-line or empty promise. It is the purpose for everything we do. Before Jesus returned to Heaven, He turned His work over to His followers. We know that Jesus intends for us to carry on and carry out the work He came to begin, so we want to become reflections of Him. We want to do what He would do, say what He would say and be the blessing to our community He would be if He were here in our place.

First Baptist Church is a remarkably loving church family that is serious about her mission, while fully enjoying the abundant life we have in Jesus. If we can help you as you seek to know and do God’s will in your own life, please contact us though our church office or talk to any of our members today.

“But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:5-6
 
What We Believe
 
“Baptists are people who profess a living faith. This faith is rooted and grounded in Jesus Christ who is ‘the same yesterday and today, and forever.’ Therefore, the sole authority for faith and practice among Baptists is Jesus Christ whose will is revealed in the Holy Scriptures.”

“A Living faith must experience a growing understanding of the truth and must be continually interpreted and related to the needs of each new generation. Throughout their history Baptist bodies, both large and small, have issued statements of faith which comprise a consensus of their beliefs. Such statements have never been regarded as complete, infallible statements of faith, nor as official creeds carrying mandatory authority.”

We have voted to affirm the “1963 Baptist Faith and Message”. For comprehensive information on what we believe please choose the option below to view the document.
