Belief Statements of FBC Mertzon, Texas

We, the believers of First Baptist Church of  Mertzon, Texas, stand united in the following core values and beliefs.

Worship

We believe only God, in the persons of God   the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy  Spirit, is worthy of our worship and praise. In accordance with the declaration of Jesus Christ, we humbly enter into His presence in spirit and truth to acknowledge His worthiness of our worship. (Matthew 4:10; John 4:23-24; Romans 12:1)

Prayer

We believe an effective and ongoing prayer life of open and honest communication with God, through the intercession of the Holy Spirit, is essential to the growth and spiritual maturity of each believer as a growing disciple of Christ. (Luke 6:12; Acts 2:42; Romans 12:9-12; Ephesians 6:18; Colossians 4:2; James 5:16)

Bible Study

We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and trustworthy Word of God and contains   the standards for daily living and relationships between us and God and each other.  (2 Timothy 2:15; 1 Peter 3:15-16)

Obedience

We believe it is the obligation and responsibility of every believer to obey the     commands of Jesus and to comply with the instructions of those placed in authority by God’s design, in as much as those instructions are in agreement with Scripture and build   up the Church.(Matthew 28:20; John 3:36; John 14:15; Acts 5:29; Acts 5:32; Romans 6:16; Colossians 3:22; Hebrews 13:17)

Encouragement

We believe it is the obligation and responsibility of every believer to encourage, lift up, and build up those around us as a visible expression of Christ’s love through us  in building up God’s kingdom. (1 Corinthians 12:12-27; 1 Thessalonians 5:11;   Hebrews 3:13)

Community

We believe in living out the 2nd Great Commandment to “love your neighbor as yourself.” It is the obligation and responsibility of every believer to be sensitive to the guidance of the Holy Spirit in leading us to engage, minister to, and, in as much as possible, assist in meeting the spiritual and physical needs of those within our church and surrounding community. (Acts 2:41-47;  1 Corinthians 12:12-27)
