Our Beliefs

First Christian Church

Beebe, AR

 

What We Believe!

First Christian Church is a Non-denominational Independent Christian Church. We have a Board of Elders and Deacons which governs our church.

  1. We believe that God is the creator of the earth and all living creatures. (Genesis 1-2)
  2. We believe that there is only one God, but that God exists in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
  3. We believe that Jesus Christ was God in the flesh, the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and was crucified on a cross for our sins. (The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John)
  4. We believe that Jesus won a victory over death by rising from the tomb, and now sits at the right hand of God in Heaven. (The Gospels)
  5. We believe that Jesus will return one day, and the dead in Christ will rise first and those who are alive will be called to meet them in the air. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
  6. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, written by men through the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  7. We believe that eternal life is available only by the grace of God through the blood of Jesus Christ. (Mark 16:16; John 3:16)
  8. We believe that the Bible teaches that we should repent of our sins, confess that Jesus is the Christ, and be baptized. (Acts 2:38)
  9. We believe that the New Testament example of baptism was by immersion. (Romans 6:4)
  10. We believe in the Great Commission: making disciples for Christ, and baptizing them in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19-20)
  11. We believe Marriage is ordained by God and is between one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:20-24; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:21-33; 1 Peter 3:1-7)
  12. We believe that all people will be judged after earthly death. Those who have accepted God's plan of salvation and obeyed Jesus will spend eternity with Him in heaven. However, the unsaved will spend eternity separated from God in hell. (2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:11-15)
