Here at First Baptist Church, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2000, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
We are a local Baptist Church that is aligned with and a contributing member of the Southern Baptist Convention. We gladly cherish the beliefs and doctrines taught in the Bible, which we believe to be the only inerrant and infallible source of truth. As a summary statement of those beliefs taught in Scripture, we hold to the Baptist Faith and Message (2000). You may read this statement of faith, which is the summary of beliefs from the Southern Baptist Convention, at the following link: The Baptist Faith and Message (2000)
FBC Henryville takes membership in our church very seriously because we take unity, commitment, and the gospel seriously. One way we seek to observe and protect our unity and faithfulness to the gospel is by having very clear expectations for all individuals who seek membership with our church. These expectations are published in our Covenant of Fellowship. Each person who joins our church is expected to participate in a new member class and to affirm through signing the covenant below:
Having, as we trust, been brought by divine grace to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and to give up ourselves to him as our Savior and our Lord, and having been baptized by immersion in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit upon our profession of faith, relying on his gracious aid, solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit bless this covenant and be with us all now and forever. Amen.
