Where the Focus is
on the Word of God

What We Believe

Statement of Faith of the Faith Baptist Church in Attica Kansas

The Bible

We believe that the King James Bible is the Inerrant, preserved Word of God for the English speaking people and that it is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. (Psalm 12:6,7; II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)


God

We believe that God is eternally existing, as a Trinity. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit - three Persons, yet one God. (John 1:1-3; I Corinthians 8:6; I John 5:7)


Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life as a man in order to reconcile sinful mankind to God. (John 1:1-15; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 1:15; Hebrews 4:15)


The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, the third person of the Trinity. He is equal in essence to both God the Father and God the Son. His office is to convince men of sin, judgment and righteousness and to comfort and guide and seal the believer. (John 16:8-13, Acts 2:4, 5:9, 8:29; Ephesians 1:13,14)


Sin

We believe that man was created in the image of God in innocence but with free will. Mankind disobeyed Godís command and therefore sinned and the curse of a sinful nature was passed upon all mankind, bringing not only physical death, but also spiritual death or eternal separation from God. (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:16,17; 3:16-19; Romans 3:10-23; 5:12; 6:23)


Satan

We believe that God is not the author of sin. Satan and his free will is. Satan is a created being that lifted himself in pride against God and was eternally punished. He is the accuser of the brethren, the author of all confusion and the father of lies. (Isaiah 14:12-15; Revelation 12:10; 1 Corinthians 14:33)


Salvation

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died as a substitutionary payment for the sins of the whole world. He physically arose from the dead and then ascended into Heaven. Each person must decide to repent and trust in this Sacrifice alone in order to be saved from eternal damnation. Salvation is purely by grace through faith. (Luke 13:3; John 3:16-18;  Romans 5:8-9; 10:9-13; Ephesians 2:8,9)


Church

The local church is an assembly of baptized believers working together for the sake of the gospel; evangelism and discipleship. We believe in the autonomy of the local church. Jesus is the Head and Chief Shepherd. (Matthew 28:19,20; Col 1:18; 1 Peter 5:1-4)


Eternal Security

We believe that all the redeemed are kept by God's power and are secure in Christ forever. We believe in once saved, always saved. (John 3:16, 36; 6:37-40; 17: Romans 5:8; 8:1, 38-39; Ephesians 1:13,14; 1 Peter 1:1-9)


We hold to the Baptist Distinctives

Biblical Authority

Autonomy of the Local Church

Priesthood of the believer

Two offices- Pastor and Deacon

Individual Soul Liberty

Separation of Church and State

Two Ordinances- Baptism and Lordís Supper
