"What We Believe"

READ: Matthew 1:1-25

We believe that the Bible is God’s word from Genesis to Revelation. We believe that God has a plan to redeem man from their sin and it’s covered in His word. We believe the New Testament is not God’s plan B, but rather it is revelation of plan A covered in the Old Testament

WHAT WE BELEIVE: First Baptist Church of Newark is a community of imperfect followers of Jesus who are intentional about learning to better understand and share our faith, growing together and caring for each other, and reaching out to serve our community and world. We believe in the God Who is revealed in the Bible, and that Jesus alone brings salvation and leads us as individuals and a community of faith into a joyous and fulfilling future. We believe that the Holy Spirit guides our personal and congregational faith, directs us to serve Jesus and our world together, and deepens our understanding of the moral, ethical, and relational focus of Scripture. We are a diverse community of disciples for whom the Bible is the written “word of God” but who also believe that different understandings of Scripture strengthen us in a spirit of unity around the love of Jesus. We genuinely welcome any who would feel comfortable in our midst no matter their background or prior Christian experience. (adopted by the Ministry Council, October 17, 2021)
