What we believe at Fairfield Baptist Church
That the Bible is the inspired Word of God and our only guide for what we believe and how we live.
That Jesus Christ is truly God and truly human.
That Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty of all our sin.
That a person is saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
That membership in the Christian Church is for those who are truly born again by God’s Spirit.
That the immersion of believers as the only scriptural form of water baptism.
That the church is made up of believers, and through the church that we serve Jesus, one another and those who do not know Him.
Jesus taught this by word and example.
That our mission as a church (relying on God’s Spirit), is to share the life changing message of Jesus with people and help them become lifelong followers of Jesus.
That everything we do as a church will be measured against this purpose.
That at Fairfield Baptist, visitors and people seeking to explore Christianity will find a warm and welcoming place.
Our Mission Statement
“Helping People Follow Jesus” by:
Declaring the Good News
Caring for others
Sharing our gifts and resources
Preparing for service
How We Intend To Achieve This:
Firstly, prayer must take priority both in receiving direction from the Lord and carrying it out. We believe that unless God is involved in what we are doing, we are wasting our time and unless we move ahead in prayerful dependence on God for direction, power and resources, nothing of any eternal value will be accomplished.
Secondly, we believe that every person has a part to play and at FBC we will encourage that. Ephesians 4:11-13 makes it clear that the ministry of the church is carried out by the believers (saints) not by a select few. So it is our desire to see every person participating in the ministry God has called them to. This involves helping each other discover an area of ministry through which we can serve God and others.
Thirdly, through the different ministries of the church. Our prayer and desire is that every ministry and activity in the church should have as its primary purpose to help people come to Jesus and develop as lifelong followers of Jesus.
