Doctrinal statement

At First Baptist Church of Brazoria we believe:

  • That the Bible is God's word.  It is inerrant and authoritative in all areas of life, in the church and beyond. 
  • God exists and is at work on this earth.
  • Jesus was born of a virgin.
  • Jesus is God
  • God is Trinity: One being in three persons
  • Humanity has sinned against God and now suffers the consequences of that sin.
  • Jesus' death on the cross and ressurrection pays the price for sin on behalf of all who trust in Him
  • As an act of obedience, Christians are baptized by immersion only after they have professed Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. (immersion means that you are dunked under the water.)
  • The soul is immortal
  • The Church is God's design for community and is therefore where people engage in life together
  • Those who believe in Christ will be resurrected from the dead 
  • We are all personally accountable to our Maker
  • We all have a responsibility to take care and value life 
  • Christians must live like Christ  
  • Once Jesus has saved you, you cannot loose that salvation.  It is secure because He is God and He secured it. 
  • Jesus is coming back one day soon.
