What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of First Baptist Church of Clovis based on the foundational truths taught in the bible.
All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows
out of these biblical doctrines.

God

There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Scripture

We believe The Bible is God's love letter to His people. That it's a testament of how God used his creation to deliver His message, record the struggle to respond accordingly, and His ultimate plan to save His people. We believe in it's authority and inherency because Jesus believed in it's authority and inherency, and has proven to be reliable historically, geographically, and archeologically.

Mankind

We believe that men and women have been created in God's image and designed for community with Him and others. We believe every human is deserving of love despite what they can offer, and while people will fail to love, Jesus' love is perfect.

Sin

We believe it's sin that separate us from God, and sin is more than the wrongs that we do, or even the rights that we do. We believe sin to be the heart condition of continuing to try and be our own lord and our own savior, and the only thing that can save us from this heart condition is Jesus transforming Love and Grace.

Salvation

We believe we are saved from not only the badness, but also our goodness. Jesus died not to make good people better, but to make dead people alive. We become alive when we fully accept the work that has been done for us through Jesus.
That it is by grace through faith in Jesus' death and resurrection that we
experience new life.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
