what we believe

First Baptist Church, Angleton holds to the Southern Baptist "Baptist Faith & Message, 2000 edition" as its statement of faith. The BFM 2000 is a conservative, Bible-based document, which affirms, among other things:

  • "The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit"
  • "All scripture is totally true and trustworthy"
  • "There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord"
  • "All true believers endure to the end"
  • "Christian baptism is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith ..."
  • "Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime"
  • "Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord."

Discover Christ

God loves you and created you for relationship with Him (John 3:16).  The problem is that we have all sinned, and sin separates us from God (Romans 3:23; 6:23a).  The good news is that Jesus willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty that we deserved for our sins so instead of eternal separation from Him, we can have eternal life (Rom. 5:8; 6:23b).  So how do we get this free gift of salvation and eternal life?  We simply call on the name of Jesus and confess Him as Lord, and believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead (Rom. 9-13).  If we sincerely do that from our heart we are saved, are no longer condemned, and we have peace with God through Jesus (Rom. 5:1; 8:1).  Even though we are saved, we still have problems, but Jesus has given us victory over sin and hell and a rewarding, fulfilled life because of the relationship we have with him (John 16:33; 10:10).

God's Vision in Action

God’s Vision in Action is more than a title or slogan for a campaign. God’s Vision in Action is a time for us to learn how to become who God has called us to be. As part of the “learning curve” to become who God has called us to be, by faith we will realize that we can do what He has called us to do. From the very first moment that I shared His vision for First Baptist Church, we all knew and understood that it was definitely a God-sized calling – something we could never accomplish by ourselves. The truth of that statement has not changed. When we have become obedient to what He calls each one of us to do with our eyes on Him and our faith in Him, in some way He will have to intervene for us to accomplish His plan. Nothing has ever changed with those thoughts and words – God will have to intervene in a miraculous way for us to see the vision fulfilled.
