Welcome to First Baptist

The Gospel

"And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them."

- Ephesians 2:1-10

What is the Gospel?


God is creator of all things (Gen 1:1). He is perfectly holy, worthy of all worship, and will punish sin.
(1 John 1:5, Rev 4:11, Rom 2:5-8)


All people, though created good, have become sinful by nature (Gen 1:26-28, Ps 51:5, Rom 3:23). From birth, all people are alienated from God, hostile to God, & subject to the wrath of God.

(Eph 2:1-3)


Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man, lived a sinless life, died on the cross to bear God's wrath in the place of all who would believe in Him, and rose from the grave in order to give his people eternal life.

(John 1:1, 1 Tim 2:5, Heb 7:26, Rom 3:21-26, 2 Cor 5:21,
1 Cor 15:20-22)


God calls everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and trust in Christ in order to be saved (Mark 1:15, Acts 20:21, Rom 10:9-10). This causes us to live a lifestyle of repentance and recognition of God as creator and Christ as redeemer.
