What We Believe

 

The Statement Of Belief By:

The First Baptist Church Of Lake City Colorado

  • We believe in the Bible as the revealed Word of God without error. It is true in all matters that is speaks to, and all events that take place within its pages.

  • We believe in a 6 day creation with a real Adam & Eve. There was a fall when man sinned against God and was expelled from the garden.

  • We believe in a worldwide flood, and the ark of Noah as the judgement of God upon the earth.

  • We believe God to be who He is as revealed in His Word. We believe in the triune God Head, God the Father, God the Son & God the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the perfect Sinless Son of God who was ALL GOD and ALL MAN in human form as He lived on earth.

  • We believe Jesus was born of the virgin Mary. He had no sin and subjected Himself to His earthly parents as well has His Heavenly Father. He was crucified, buried and physically rose from the grave 3 days later. He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us.

  • We believe man, in his fallen state, is in rebellion to God, and needs the Spirit of God to awaken him and save him from his sin. Jesus is the one and only way for mankind to be saved and to become right with God.

  • We believe that through God's unconditional love & amazing grace towards us exhibited through Jesus' death on the cross that man is not saved by good works, but by repentance and faith in Jesus Christ through His substitute sacrifice. Through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, all of  man’s sins can be forgiven.

  • We believe we are secure in our salvation and do not believe we can lose our salvation. This however does not mean we can live any way we want to.

  • We believe God saves us, to conform us into His image to be a holy, pure and upright people. We are called to believe and follow Him.

  • We believe all Christians should be a part of a church body to be shepherded, fed, encouraged & held accountable. We are to use our gifts to serve and to bring honor to God individually and collectively.

  • We believe the church should be watchful, ready and about Kingdom business as we prepare for His coming.

  • We believe the church (God’s people) should be involved here (locally); throughout the states and worldwide, in bringing the gospel and all that entails to all people. We should be on mission with God to redeem people to Himself.

  • We believe in Heaven as the eternal reward that God gives His people. Hell is a real place of eternal torment, and of separation from God forever, because of rejection of the Son of God.

  • We believe that there is a real satan (devil). He is the father of lies, accuser of the brethren, master deceiver, who, along with his demons, makes war on the saints. Being at war, we must continually be prepared, by putting on the full Armor of God.

  • We believe God created us male & female and that marriage is between one man and one woman.

  • We believe men and women should keep themselves sexually pure before marriage and faithful in marriage. Adultery, fornication, homosexuality and living together before marriage, are sins before God. Though we may have failed in these areas, through God's grace and mercy we can be forgiven & restored. What is culturally acceptable does not mean GOD ACCEPTABLE.

  • We believe life begins at conception, & all life is precious to God, old and young alike.

  • We believe and hold to the Baptist Faith and Message doctrinal statement of the Southern Baptist Convention.
