Church Biblical Beliefs

Bethany First Baptist Church is an independent fundamentalist Baptist Church, that believes the Bible is the inspired Word of God.

Our basic tenets of faith are printed below for your knowledge and edification.

WE believe:

  1. That God is a Triune Spirit; that is, He is the Trinity, Three-In-One: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (1 John 5:7, St. John 4:24, St. John 14: 7-11)
  2. Salvation for our soul is provided by God's grace. Grace is un-merited favor with God. It is completely opposite from merit or works. (Ephesians 2: 8-10).
  3. For one to be saved, confession must be made with the mouth and repentance and belief must be established in the heart. Our belief must be in Christ Jesus as the Son of God and the only sacrifice acceptable for our atonement before God. (Romans 10:9-11:4; and Titus 2:14).
  4. There are two ordinances (laws) of the New Testament church, Baptism and the Lord's Supper. (Matthew 28: 19-20; Romans 6: 1-10; Matthew 26:26; and 1 Corinthians 11:24).
  5. Speaking in tongues, whilea valid gift of the Holy Spirit, is not a prerequisite for salvation in Christ Jesus (1 Corinthians Chapter 14).
  6. Every Saint should know "Spiritual CPR". That is, you should know how to lead a sinner to Christ. Our primary mission is to be witnesses of the risen Christ and His power in the lives of ordinary people. You should therefore commit to memory the "Romans Road to Salvation" that you may lead a friend, loved one, or stranger to eternal life in Christ Jesus. Memorize: (Romans 3:23, 5:8; 6:23; 10: 9-10). Fruther, for those who say "God cannot forgive what I have done", see 1 John 1:9.
  7. Tithing, the act of giving the first tenth of our earnings unto the Lord, is as much an act of worship as prayer and supplication unto God. We believe that any Saint of God can should tithe. It does not matter if you are young or old, rich or poor. Saints who learn to tithe become spiritually mature believers. They have learned to trust God by faith and grow in their reliance on Him to deliver them from any circumstance. (Mark 12: 41-44; Malachi 3: 6-10; 1 Corinthians 16: 1-2; and II Corinthians 9: 6-8).
