What We Believe at FBC Keiser

  

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired, so that it is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration, so that it is a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.

We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - and that these three are one God.

We believe in God as absolute and sole creator of the universe, and that creation was by divine feat, not through evolutionary process.


We believe that God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners.

We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and wrought mighty works and wonders and signs exactly as revealed in the four Gospels, that He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. Later, He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is head of the church and intercedes for believers, and from whence He is coming again personally, bodily, visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.

We believe that since in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us - men are saved and justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood.

We believe that such salvation with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature and its hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership - or man's effort - and is of pure grace.

We believe that a true believer is eternally secure, that he cannot lose his salvation, but that sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of the Heavenly Father.


We believe that all who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Christ; at death, their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness; and at the rapture their bodies will be raised to the likeness of the body of His glory and dwell forever in divine presence.

We believe that it is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling Spirit.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person, is God and possesses all the divine attributes. he indwells all believers, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, and fills them in response to confession of sin and yieldedness.
