WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Scriptures. We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Chrisitian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried.
The True God. We believe the Scriptures teach that there is one, and only one, living true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is Jehovah, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; and equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, the mission of the First Providence Missionary Baptist Family is:
* To minister the love of God to all freely;
* To provide membership to all who want to learn about Jesus and grow spiritually;
* To express God's grace through Jesus Christ;
* To use the uncontested Word of God to teach and preach the Gospel; and
* To witness to others that the glory of God will not fail us.
The First Providence Missionary Baptist family will be equipped to minister the Word of God to people at their level of spiritual development and to bring the fellowship and all constituents into a higher expression of spiritual, economic, and social awareness, which will promote spiritual maturity in the Word and a closer walk with God on a global sphere of ministry.
