What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Fishing Creek Arbor Baptist Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

God

Bible

There is only One True & Living GOD Who exists in three Persons. GOD the FATHER, GOD the SON (JESUS CHRIST), GOD the HOLY SPIRIT. Without division of being, essence or nature. (Deut. 6:4, John 1:1, 14)

Discipleship

We encourage the continued growth of all believers and we facilitate, teach, mentor and provide every opportunity possible through the church. (Titus 2, 2 Pet. 3:18)

Everything we do must be based on the Bible which is the inherent, infallible, inspired Living Word of GOD. (2 Tim. 3:16, Heb. 4:12)

Evangelism

Our most important assignment is to carry out the great commission given by CHRIST, which is to share the gospel with all people (regardless of race, ethnicity, economic status, etc.) and bring as many possible into a relationship with JESUS CHRIST
(Matt. 28:19-20)

Family

Prayer

We believe that marriage is the union between one man and one woman intended until death as ordained of GOD. That children are an heritage (gift) of the LORD and it is our duty to assist families in every way possible to help build a foundation of CHRIST and HIS Word for children to be raised upon. It is the Churches duty to minister to all families in every way that is possible with the love and compassion of CHRIST. (Matt. 19:5-6, 14)

Prayer is the essence of our connection and communion with GOD. We will support & encourage public, private, congregational and intercessory prayer through the church. We teach and encourage the importance of daily, individual prayer and time alone with GOD. (Matt. 6:7-13, 1 Thess. 5:17)

Worship

Ministry

We will support and encourage the importance of Worship and provide worship opportunities as much as possible to individuals, families and the church. (John 4:23-24)

It is every member’s duty and privilege to carry out the ministry of CHRIST.  Every believer has a Spiritual Gift (s) and is taught, encouraged and given the opportunity to walk in those gifts for the edification of the Body of CHRIST (the church).
(Rom. 12:4-8, 1Cor. 12, Eph. 4:11-12)
