The mission of First Baptist Church of Marilla is to “do all to the glory of God”, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, by evangelizing the lost in our community, edifying the believers in our church, and equipping servants for ministry in the world.
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This is established in the Bible, God’s infallible, inerrant, and inspired Word.
Man was created by God without sin, disobeyed God by his own choice and must be separated by God spending eternity in hell because of his sinful state.
Jesus Christ died as a substitute sacrifice for the sins of all mankind. This gift of salvation is free to any and all who accept it by faith.
Because of these things we believe, as a church:
We are committed to living out the unconditional love and grace of Jesus Christ.
We are committed to celebrative Christ-centered worship that touches the whole person.
We are committed to faithfully proclaiming God's Word, the foundation of our convictions and beliefs.
We are committed to the task of actively seeking to win lost people to Christ.
We are committed to the process of equipping believers to become passionate followers of Christ.
We are committed to heartfelt prayer that unleashes God's transforming power.
