First Baptist Church is a congregation committed to the historic Christian faith. ‘Scripture Alone’ and ‘Christ Alone’ are two classic doctrines that were foundations of the Protestant Reformation. Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone) declares that the ultimate authority in the church and in the life of the Christian is the Bible. The Bible is God's written revelation to man. It is fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, therefore inerrant and infallible in the original documents and languages. "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." - 2 Timothy 3:16. Solus Christus (By Christ Alone) is the doctrine that informs us that our justification to stand before God in a right relationship with Him (salvation) is based on the grace of God through the life, atoning death, and the resurrection of Christ and nothing else. There is no work that man can do to save him or herself." …but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation..." Romans 5:8-11.Join us to study God's word, faithfully preached and taught by our Pastor, Doug Packard.
