Core Beliefs

Fairfield Baptist Church seeks to align our beliefs and practices with Scripture.  In general, the following summarizes our core doctrinal principles:

  1. The Bible is the Holy Word of God and is revealed to man, free from error, and the sole authority on Godly life and living. (1 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 3:2)
  2. There is one God manifest in three persons: Father, Son, and Spirit.  (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19)
  3. Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died to atone for the sins of man, was buried, and rose again on the third day.  He ascended to heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father till the day of His return.  (Luke 1:34, 35; Ephesians 1:20; 1 Peter 3:18)
  4. The Holy Spirit resides in the heart of every believer where He convicts and counsels the believer for the purpose of sanctification.  (John 14:16-26; Acts 10:19; Romans 8:10)
  5. Human beings are the special creation of God.  Man was made in the image of God but through the sin of the first man, Adam, all men have become tainted by sin from their birth.  (Genesis 2:7-23; 3:7-24; Romans 5:12-21)
  6. Salvation is a free gift offered to anyone who will accept it.  For those that do accept it, they are everlasting secure in the hand of God and upon death they will spend eternity with Christ.  (Romans 6:23; 10:8-10; Ephesians 2:8-10)
  7. Anyone who has not received God’s gift of salvation is condemned already.  If they remain in this state until death, they will spend eternity in hell.  (Luke 9:43-47; 12:5; John 3:18

Baptist Faith and Message (2000)
The cooperating churches of the Southern Baptist Convention have prepared a statement of commonly held beliefs known as the Baptist Faith and Message (2000).  This document provides a framework to understand major doctrines of Scripture.  The family of Fairfield has fully endorsed this expression of Scripture.
