First Baptist Church Joelton

Beliefs & Core Values

Statement of Basic Beliefs

We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired, infallible word of God and the basis for our beliefs. This church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000. We voluntarily band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind and to minister to all.
