What we believe

As the Body of Christ known as First Baptist Church of Harbor Oaks established in Port Orange, Florida, We believe:

 

1. That our God is one God in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

2. That our Bible is our inspired, inerrant, God-breathed Word from God Himself for daily living.

3. That the church is the body of Christ on earth, with Christ as head of the church.

4. That Jesus is God’s unique Son, who came to earth as a virgin born man who was both all human and all divine. He lived a sinless life, and gave up His life upon a cross for all who would believe in Him. We believe that God raised Jesus on the third day, and is now alive. The borrowed tomb is empty.

5. That our sin separates us from God, who is perfect in every way.

6. That salvation is found only in the saving blood of Jesus Christ. His substitutionary death upon the cross serves as the bridge to which we can have a relationship with God.
7. That our purpose on earth is to glorify God and love others into His kingdom.
8. That our future is secure through our faith in Jesus Christ; we eagerly await His promised return.
