We, believe it is essential for an autonomous body like the church to make their beliefs available to those seeking membership. If you are looking for a church home, but would like to know the mindset of our church, here are the core beliefs of our church.
We are a Bible believing New Testament Church. We believe that every person needs Christ as Savior and Lord. We strive to live according to the teachings of God's Holy Word the Bible.
First Baptist Church of Newark is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention. There are certain foundational beliefs stated in our Convention's constitution to which we hold. We also hold to other beliefs, some of which describe our beliefs in more detail than the Baptist Faith and Message. We are also duly aligned with the Southern Baptists of Texas. You can read more about those beliefs here: Baptist Faith and Message. Should you wish to have a typed copy of our official church Constitution and By-Laws, please contact the church office and we will be glad to send you a copy.
