First Baptist Church of Douglass
Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Douglass web site. We are located in Douglass, TX, about 14 miles west of Nacogdoches. Our worship services are on Sunday from 11:00 am to 12:00 am. On Sunday nights, our worship services begin at 7:00 PM and end at 8:00 PM. This site is still under construction, so some of the pages do not contain much information.
"Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular." (I Corinthians 12:27)
OUR CONFESSION OF FAITH
1. We believe in the verbal inspiration, absolute inerrancy, and final authority of the Scriptures. We believe that the Bible reveals God, the fall of man, the way of salvation, and God's plan and purpose in the ages.
2. We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
These three are One, the Holy Trinity.
3. We believe in the Deity, virgin birth, sinless life, vicarious death, and the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
4. We believe that salvation is 'by grace' - plus nothing and minus nothing. The conditions to salvation are repentance and faith.
5. We believe that men are justified by faith alone, and are accounted righteous before God only through the merit and shed blood of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
6. We believe in the visible, personal, and premillennial return of Jesus Christ. We believe that His coming for the church is imminent.
7. We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
8. We believe that the local church is Divinely commissioned to spread the gospel at home, and to send the gospel around the world.
