What we do and who we love, our unity and our motives, what we seek and how we grow, are all deeply affected by our core beliefs. Here is what makes FBC Mims unique.
Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is God, the second person of the Trinity, and that He is coming back again as He promised.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father - Author of life and love, God the Son - Jesus our savior who intercedes for us before the Father, and God the Holy Spirit - The Spirit of Jesus, God’s life giving presense who fills and empowers believers, giving us the power to experience God and say no to sin. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that the Bible is God’s inerrant Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives. In it, we have everything we need for life and godliness.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. We are born in sin because of our first father Adam, and through his fall, we all inherited the curse of death and eternal separation from God.
Jesus came to earth, lived a perfect life, then died on the cross on our behalf as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. In order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus as Lord, and commit to His will for our lives as we obey all that He commands.
We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together as we are instructed in the Scriptures. The church is where we have a family of families, living in obedience to Christ. We do this by learning from His word, singing praises to Him, and praying with and for each other, bearing one another’s burdens, and faithfully using God given Spiritual gifts to build one another up and glorify Him.
