What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Our Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Fairpark Baptist 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.

About the Bible

Every Word of the Bible is inspired by God and is perfect and complete without any error. God gave it to us as a guide for salvation and for every day life. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

About God

There is One God Who exists in a Triune Nature of three co-equal and co-eternal personalities, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:7)

About Jesus

Jesus is the Savior of all mankind Who loves you so much that He was willing to die in your place on the Cross. Jesus is the Creator God Who left Heaven and came to Earth to be born of a virgin so that He as both man and God could pay the infinite price of sin for us. He is the only way of salvation. (Matthew 1:20-23; John 1:1-3,14; 1 Timothy 3:16; 10:30; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Hebrews 2:9)

About Salvation

Salvation is entirely by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9) and believers are eternally secure (saved forever). You can receive the free gift of salvation by believing on Christ. (1 Peter 1:5 John 10:27-30; John 3:16)

About the Resurrection

Jesus Christ arose from the dead literally and bodily, thus guaranteeing that all who trust him as Savior will also live again and have eternal life in the Heaven to which Christ ascended. (John 11:25-26; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, 51-57)

About the Return of Christ

We believe in the literal Second Coming of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:11). We teach the pre-tribulational Rapture of the saved and the pre-millennial Second Coming of Christ. (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-55; Revelation 20:6)

About Creation

We believe that God created the world and the universe in 6 literal days exactly as described in Genesis chapters 1 & 2. (Exodus 20:11; Psalm 100:3; Colossians 1:16-17)

About Eternity

We believe that there is a literal Heaven (that is better than anything the human mind can imagine) and also a literal Hell where those who reject Christ’s love will suffer for eternity. (John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 2:9; Matt. 25:46; Revelation 20:14-15)

About Baptism

Every believer in Jesus Christ is to be baptized by immersion as a public testimony of their faith in Christ and as a symbol of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. (Acts 8:35-39)
