About First Baptist Church of Dunkirk

Statement of Purpose

First Baptist Church is committed to Help One Another To Know God Better. We seek a healthy balance between the functions of the exaltation of God in worship, the edification of the believer through instruction and fellowship, and the evangelization of the lost.

What We Believe

  • We believe in the inspiration, authority and sufficiency of the Holy Bible.
  • We believe there is one God that exists as three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and was both fully God and fully man.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of Christ and in His ascension into Heaven.
  • We believe that all mankind is inherently sinful and separated from God.
  • We believe that repentance of sin and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ are the only conditions of salvation.
  • We believe that eternal salvation is by grace through the sacrificial death of Jesus and not of works or baptism.
  • We believe that all who are saved are inhabited by the Holy Spirit and that their salvation is eternally assured.
  • We believe that the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit were concluded with the completion of the New Testament Canon.
  • We believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the church and the pre-millennial return of Christ.
