What We Believe

From the time of the Apostles to today, Christians have laid out doctrine (beliefs) in brief, definitive statements. As those who know God, we believe it necessary to set forth in a concise fashion the cornerstone truths of our church as guided by scripture. The Foundation Baptist Church Statement of Faith summarizes essential Christian beliefs, shows unity in Christ, and guards the church from error.

All who join Foundation Baptist Church are required to affirm the Foundation Baptist Church Statement of Faith, the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 and Nashville Statement on Biblical Sexuality. These statements register our belief in historic Christianity, evangelical Christianity, believer’s baptism, congregational polity, and biblical sexuality. Once we as members agree to the statement, we are responsible for believing and living in accordance with it.

In addition to the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 and the Nashville Statement on Biblical Sexuality, Foundation Baptist Church will align all teaching to the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith. As such, all teachers at Foundation Baptist Church will commit to not teach anything opposing the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith as stated in the Teachers Expectations. The purposes that guided Foundation Baptist Church in adding the 1689 as teaching distinctives are to:

• Provide a basis for doctrinal discussions and instruction
• Serve as a reference point when opinions differ

Foundation Baptist Church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention, and 9Marks. We affirm the 9Marks Mission Statement and we are listed in the 9Marks Church Directory.
