What We Believe


First Baptist Church Weeki Wachee Acres is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention and has the following statement of its beliefs:

     We believe that there is one God, eternally existing as three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

     We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, is wholly God and wholly man lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave and ascended into Heaven.

     We believe in the literal, imminent return of Jesus Christ to earth.

     We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life.

     We believe that mankind fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and that all people are sinners in need of salvation.

     We believe that salvation is a gift of grace from God received through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

     We believe that every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

     We believe that those persons who die without faith in Jesus Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven, through faith in Christ, spend eternity in Heaven.

     We believe that baptism is in obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.

     We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the head.

     We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
