Our Beliefs

                               

 

 

 

The core values of FirstBorn Church are:

 

Teaching, Preaching, and Healing:  “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.”  (Matt.4:23) Teaching, preaching, and healing are the core of our values because that is what the earthly ministry of Jesus consisted of: Everywhere He went He taught, preached, and healed all in that order. So foremost and first of all, we teach, preach, and heal.

 

Unity: “Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit and the bond of peace.” (Eph.4:3) We believe that if the body of Christ is going to fulfill the great commission and be effective doing so, we (as a body) have got to come together in the unity of the Spirit. According to God and the Bible when people come together to work as one, they can do whatever they imagine. (Gen.11) The Bible says that on the day of Pentecost when they all came together on one accord, there came a sound from heaven as of a mighty rushing wind. (Acts 2:1-4) If we as a church want that mighty rushing wind to come again, we must come together on one accord.

 

Prayer And Intercession: “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” (Eph.6:18) Without prayer, all ministries will fail! We will never be effective in winning the lost unless we pray and intercede for one another and the lost of this world. There is no such thing as an effective ministry without prayer.

 

Praise And Worship: “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” (Dan.11:32) The “know” that is used in Daniel 11:32 is the same word that is used when the Bible says, “and Adam knew Eve, and she bore him a son.” It is not the word “know” as in “knowledge of” but “know” as in an intimate relationship or intercourse. Our ability to do exploits for God will grow out of our personal devotion with God through our worship and praise.

 

Reconciliation: “And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” (2 Cor.5:18) One thing we as believers must never for get: We are all in the ministry! We are here on the earth as an extension of Jesus’ ministry. I often tell believers that the only reason God didn’t bring us home to heaven when we accepted Christ is because He wanted us to bring someone with us. It is our spiritual duty as believers to tell the men and women of this world that Christ died for them, and that God is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come unto repentance, and have everlasting life through Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

What We Believe

 

We believe in the one and only true and living God. And that He sent His Son (Jesus) to die on the cross, that all men who accept His sacrifice would be saved.

We believe that there is only one way to get to heaven, and that is accepting the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and confessing Him as Lord and Savior of your life according to Romans Chapter ten.

We believe that upon the acceptance of Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, that you must be baptized in water whenever it is permissible.

We believe in all nine gifts of the Spirit as mentioned in I Cor.12. And all nine fruits of the spirit as mentioned in Gal.5.

We believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, and beside it, there is no other gospel whereby men must be saved, and pattern and live their lives by.

We believe that there is a heaven to gain, and a hell to shun.

We believe that our Lord and Savior will soon return for His Church without spot or wrinkle, and pronounce judgment on the world, and victory over the devil; being crowned King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

 

 

 

Vision, Goals, and Objectives For FirstBorn Church

“Building Gods’s House and Advancing the Kingdom”

 

Winning the lost - Of course this should be the foremost thing in everyone's vision. Everything we endeavor to do is geared towards reaching the lost. There are those who preach and teach evangelization (and rightly so). We believe the major reason why there isn't any more people getting saved in our churches is because the church isn't ready to give birth to these new babes. We believe the key to successful evangelization is having a church full of "on fire" members for God. Once the believer is right with God, they will automatically evangelize.

A Church Tent - Pastor believes every church should have a gospel tent, not just the traveling evangelist. With a gospel tent you can go out on the streets where they are in many ways. "This is one thing I've always considered doing: getting a tent and putting our best singing, dancing, and shouting under it. With a tent you can be so much more versatile on the streets then within four walls."   -Pastor Foster

Equipping and training believers for ministry - We will eventually start a ministry school and training center. Every member in the body of Christ has a special and specific call upon their life, but the tragedy is, most have no earthly idea what it is, or how to get started in it. Our goal is to help Believers find and fulfill that call.

Building strong families and marriages - The most important ministry a Believer will ever hold or occupy is the ministry of THE HUSBAND, and the ministry of THE WIFE! Failing at either will cause you to fail in any other irregardless of how anointed a person may be; the devil destroys marriages and families because he knows if he can discredit marriage, he can discredit their ministries. A successful Husband, or Wife ministry is the foundation for all other ministries. Except these cornerstones are laid properly an individuals ministry will always be shaky and unstable.


OUTREACH - We exsist to reach people with the gospel. We are all about outreach! We are constantly working on ways to reach more of the world with this gospel message that God has entrusted us with. This is why we seek to purchasing radio and television time; Why we are printing books, newsletters, tracts, and flyers; Why we run crusades across the nation, and go into prisons, nursing homes, and hospitals.  


Reaching the Youth - God has given us a ministry to both the young and old. We believe that living for God is the coolest thing any young person can do. We are working on having a youth department that is second to none; with young people that genuinely live saved. Young people that are full of the power and boldness of God to get out on the streets and take them back for Jesus. Young people that have been skilled and trained in street evangelization and administering the tangible power of God.
