What We Believe

At First Baptist Church in Kennett, we believe…

One God
There is one God. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; who subsists in unity, and also as three separate distinct Persons.

Jesus Christ Is God’s Son
Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He was born of a virgin as both God and man, lived a sinless life, died to atone for the sins of human beings, was buried, arose from the grave, ascended into heaven, and will literally return to earth.

The Bible
The Bible is God’s Holy Word, without error, and is the sole authority for life.

Created Man’s Need for God
Human beings are the special creations of God, made in His image. They fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and all human beings are sinners in need of salvation.

Salvation is a gift through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. Every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven, while those who die in their sins will spend eternity in hell.

Baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christ’s command.

Believer’s Access to God
Each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Church
The church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
