First Congregational Church is a Southern Baptist Congregation that takes pride in doctrinal transparency and thoroughness. Below you will find the 5 Sola's of the Reformation that provide a general structure for our core beliefs and then you will find two links to explore more of our doctrinal convictions as communicated in our confessional standards of the Southern Baptist Convention's statement of faith called "The Baptist Faith and Message" and the historic Baptist document called the "1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith".
Sola Scriptura-Scripture alone is our highest and only infallible guide for faith and practice.
Sola Gratia-We are justified by grace alone and good works play no role in earning our salvation.
Sola Fide-We are justified through faith alone as trusting in Christ is sufficient for our salvation.
Solus Christus-The work of Christ alone is fully sufficient for our justification.
Soli Deo Gloria-God alone receives all the glory for our justification.
