Beliefs

Weber City First Baptist Church is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, which has prepared a statement of generally held convictions called the Baptist Faith and Message. The topics here provide only a brief, partial summary.

The Scriptures

We believe the Bible is the inerrant, inspired, and infallible Word of God. God's Word is the final authority for faith and life. 

God

We believe there is only one God. He has chosen to reveal Himself in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Sin

We believe men and women are created in the image of God. The sin of Adam marred that image, creating an eternal divide between God and humanity. Every person is born in sin and in need of forgiveness. We believe God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess, repent of their sins, and seek God's mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. We believe every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity.

 

Salvation

We believe the only way a person can have a true, forgiven relationship with God is through Jesus Christ. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary and conceived by the Holy Spirit. Jesus be came a man without ceasing to be God. He was tempted in every way, as we are, and remained without sin. Jesus made the sacrifice for our sins on the cross. He died, was buried, and rose to life again on the third day. Our right standing with God is made sure because of His literal and physical resurrection.

We believe God offers eternal life as a free gift. It must be received by faith alone through God's grace alone. The life that comes from this gift is a permanent possession of the one receiving it.

Jesus' Return

We believe in the literal and physical return of Jesus Christ to judge the living and the dead.

 

The Church

We believe the church is a local body of believers on a mission to enlarge God's Kingdom. The local church is autonomous, free of any external authority or control.

Baptism & Communion

We believe baptism and the Lord's Supper are the two ordinances of the church.
