BELIEFS
 
First Baptist Church of Lansdale
is a bible centered church and we believe:
  • The triune God, who is eternally one God in three persons (Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14). This one, triune God is most clearly revealed to us in the incarnate Son, Jesus Christ our Lord (John 1:18, Hebrews 1:1-2).
  • The Good News of the atoning death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and salvation from sin and death for fallen humanity by grace through faith in Him (Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • The Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, as the divinely inspired Word of God, the final written authority and trustworthy for faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
  • The sovereignty of God realized in the Lordship of Christ over all creation, and the call to proclaim the Gospel and make disciples of all nations in the power and Holy Spirit in anticipation of the day of Christ’s return and the making of all things new (Matthew 28:18-20).
  • A common unity with believers in Christ everywhere as His one true Church, while celebrating our distinctive heritage as Baptists (Ephesians 4:4-6). These distintictives include an understanding of the local church as autonomous with regard to its government, and composed of believers who have been baptized by immersion upon credible confession of their faith. The church gathers regularly to worship, to celebrate the Lord’s Supper, to edify one another, and to reach out to the world around us (Acts 2:41-47).
 
OUR PURPOSE
 
Our official purpose is “to worship God, grow in relationship with Jesus, introduce others to Him, and care for each other, our community,
and our world.”
 
OUR VISION
 
“to be the light and voice of Christ in a broken world and to help people become fully devoted followers of Him.”
 
OUR HANDS
 
God’s mission to reach our world with Jesus Christ’s good news inspires us to work locally and globally.
 
We partner with mission organizations, educational institutions and social service agencies as a leader in our denomination, and our generous church gives almost a quarter of our receipts to causes outside of our own ministries.
 
Members from FBCL can be found volunteering throughout the community, traveling our country or the world to bring disaster relief, build up ministries, teach or do whatever God’s Spirit is calling them to do. We’re glad to be part of God’s mission, and pray that you’d like to be a part of this mission as well.
