ETERNAL SALVATION THROUGH JESUS

Jesus was born 2,000 years ago. He was born into a humble family and a humble village in ancient Israel, to a teenage mother who was a virgin. Jesus lived a relatively normal life as a carpenter until he reached the age of 30, when He began his public ministry. During the next three years, Jesus performed miracles, preached messages and proclaimed He was God by fulfilling everything the Old Testament prophesied, by His own words word and by His own works. As promised by the Old Testament Scriptures, Jesus was crucified on a Roman cross to save humanity from sin, Satan and death. On the third day, Jesus rose from death and appeared to hundreds of people before ascending into the clouds to join His heavenly Father.
 
The purpose of Jesus’ life was to reveal the nature, character and personality of God, to show His reign as King of Kings and to reconcile men and women to Himself. In reconciling us to God the Father, Jesus lived and died as a sacrificial substitute, living perfectly in the place of all sinners, and dying gruesomely in the place of the guilty (all humankind). Jesus’ life, death and resurrection provided proof He is the Savior of the world, the only way for sinners to be saved from the righteous wrath of God. Jesus accomplished His mission through His death, atoning for our sin, and through His resurrection, rising in victory over Satan, sin and our deaths.
 
The First Step for you is to accept what Jesus has done for you. If you want to know God personally through Christ you can be saved today.

TELL THE WORLD THROUGH BAPTISM

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a testimony of faith in the final resurrection of the dead. Since babies and small children are unable to comprehend sin, repentance and other doctrines required for salvation, First Baptist does not participate in infant baptism. We would love to discuss baptism with you, if you have questions or would like to be baptized please contact us to schedule.

Membership Matters is for attenders wanting to learn more about First Baptist or wanting to commit to church membership.
