The following are the core beliefs of Fellowship Bible Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
We believe the Bible is the Word Of God. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and that the 66 books from Genesis to Revelation are the complete Word of God. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any error and is completely relevant in our everyday lives.
We believe that God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. We believe there is one God, who exists eternally in three distinct Persons: God The Father, God The Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions and are distinct from the other, they are equal in power and glory.
We believe the First Person of the Trinity orders and directs all things according to His own purpose, pleasure, character, and grace. In His character He is everywhere present, all-knowing, all-powerful, unchanging and completely worthy of our trust, and above all, holy. In His purpose and plans from eternity past, He is the grand architect of both creation and the redemption plan for sinners. As an infinitely loving and compassionate Father, he graciously involves Himself in the affairs of humanity longing for their salvation and spiritual growth.
We believe Jesus Christ pre-existed from all eternity, that He is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, that He was born of a virgin, that He lived a sinless life, that He died a sacrificial death for our sins, that He rose bodily from the dead and ascended to the right hand of God the Father, where He continues to seek and save lost sinners. He remains the only mediator between God and man. At the appointed time He will return to earth to fulfill the Father’s plan for history.
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers at the moment of salvation and empowers them to live lives that bring glory to God. He is the seal and guarantee of the believers salvation. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Jesus Christ. He also convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and coming judgment.
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
