What We Believe

How do I join the fellowship of FBC Booneville?
Salvation is the total redemption of a person from sin and reconciliation with God. Sin separates us from God's holiness, but Jesus' death on the cross made it possible for us to be forgiven and brought back to right fellowship with God. Salvation is through Jesus alone and is freely offered to all who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. If you have questions about accepting Jesus, please contact us!
Baptism is the water immersion of a believer in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, that symbolizes our faith in the crucified, buried, and resurrected Christ. It is also a symbol of passing from the old life of sin to a new life in Christ. Baptism has no saving power, but is a testimony to a person's salvation. If you have questions about baptism, please contact us!
We expect the members of First Baptist to attend worship regularly, to attend a small group regularly, to give regularly, and to serve regularly.
