Loving God, Loving People and Connecting the Two…At First Baptist Tillman’s Corner, this is more than a motto. Our hope is that you will experience the power and presence of God every time you walk through our doors. Below you can find out more about what we believe.
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is God’s revelation of Himself in writing to humanity. It was written by men but inspired by God and is truth without any mixture of error. The Bible points to Jesus Christ, the focus of God’s revelation of Himself to us.
The God revealed in the Bible is the only living and true God. He is the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Ruler of the world. Though God is one being, He has revealed Himself in three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We owe God our highest love, worship, and obedience.
God created humanity as a special creation made in His own image. Humanity sinned against God and sin spread to all those who were created by God both by nature and by choice. This has left humanity dead in sin and incapable of establishing their own relationship with God. All stand in need of God’s grace.
Salvation is offered to those who will believe and trust in the work of Jesus Christ, who lived a sinless life yet died the death of sinner on the cross as a substitute for sin. As a person trusts in the finished work of Christ, God forgives him of sin and give him new birth to a life of faith. This begins when a person trusts in Christ, continues throughout one’s lifetime, and will ultimately be completed when Jesus returns.
ABOUT THE CHURCH
The church is made up of all those who believe in Jesus. Though the church is one body, believers assemble in local assemblies or churches for the purpose of worship, Christian education, and accountability. FBTC is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention for the purpose of doing missions and cooperating with other like-minded churches in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
ABOUT THE RETURN OF JESUS
Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth. Those who have believed in Christ will spend eternity with the Lord forever, but those who die in their own unrighteous state will be consigned to a place of eternal destruction.
