The following document outlines the position of Faith Bible Church on biblical doctrines. It is recognized that there will be those who choose to fellowship with us who do not agree in all points with our doctrinal teaching position. We welcome you to participate freely with us, yet at the same time cannot permit doctrines to be taught within our body that are contrary to what we believe the Bible communicates. The reason for this is because we believe that the cause of unity in the church is best served by elevating the truth, and then demonstrating how Christians can love each other across boundaries, rather than removing the boundaries.
Our mission is to spread a passion for God's supremacy by being passionate disciples of Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:19-20; Eph. 3:21; Phil. 3:8; 1 Cor. 10:31).
Our mission is accomplished as we fulfill the God-given priorities for the church.
Our mission and God-given priorities are accomplished through two essential means.
The Bible alone is the sole source of authority for our beliefs and behavior, both in the believer's life and the life of the church. We believe the inerrant, inspired Word has authority for all matters of life and is fully sufficient for every need of man (Isa. 40:8; John 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:16-17).
The Holy Spirit is the illuminator of Scripture, the empowerer of the means of grace, and the One who infuses the church with God's power. It is only by the Spirit's power that we can honor and glorify the Lord (1 Cor. 2:14-16; Zech. 4:6; Eph. 3:16; 1 Pet. 4:10-11).
