Free Will Baptist Doctrine

 

We  believe:                                                    

  •    That there is one God, whose eternal existence is in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; that all three are equal, but distinct persons.  They are the divine Trinity.

  •   That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God; that He was born of the Virgin Mary; that He died for man’s redemption; that He ascended to Heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as our intercessor.

  •  That the Bible is the inspired Word of God.

  •   That the human will is free and self-controlled; that is possible for a person who has been saved by divine grace to forsake and to make shipwreck of their faith.  However, the person (believer) who through grace perseveres unto the end of life has promise of eternal salvation.

  •   That sanctification is initial at regeneration and continues progressively through the Christian experience, becoming final and complete in Heaven.

  •    In three gospel ordinances

    1. Baptism by immersion

    2. The Lord’s Supper

    3. Washing the Saints’ Feet.

  •   That tithing is God’s financial plan for supporting the work of the church here on earth.

  •    In the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; in the resurrection of the dead; and in the final judgment.

Free Will Baptist Church Covenant

 

  • Having given ourselves to God, by faith in Christ, and adopted the Word of God as our rule of faith and practice, we now give ourselves to each other by the will of God in this solemn covenant.

  • We promise, by His grace, to love and obey Him in all things, to avoid all appearance of evil, to abstain from all sinful amusements and unholy conformity to the world, from all sanction of the use and sale of intoxicating beverages, the abuse of drugs, and to “provide things honest in the sight of all men.”

  • We agree faithfully to discharge our obligations in reference to the study of the Scriptures, secret prayer, family devotions, and social worship; and by self-denial, faith and good works endeavor to “grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

  • We will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together for church conferences, public worship and the observance of the ordinances of the Gospel; nor fail to pay according to our ability for the support of the church, of its poor and all its benevolent work.

  • We agree to accept Christian admonition and reproof with meekness and to watch over one another in love, endeavoring to “keep the unity of the Spirit” in bonds of peace; to be careful of one another’s happiness and admonish the erring, and as far as we are able, promote the success of the church and of the Gospel.

  • We will everywhere hold Christian principle sacred and Christian obligations and enterprises supreme; counting it our chief business in life to extend the influence of Christ in society, constantly praying and toiling that the Kingdom of God may come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

  • To this end we agree to labor for the promotion of educational and denominational enterprises, the support of missions, the success of Sunday schools and evangelistic efforts for the salvation of the world.  And may the God of peace sanctify us wholly and preserve us blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
