Who We Are

We Believe

Third Baptist Church will produce MATURE disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ who advance God's Kingdom, by His power, for His glory.


We believe and hold to the statements in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.

  • We believe...

    That the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, are God's inerrant Word and tells one story about Jesus as its hero.

  • We believe...

    That the faithful preaching and teaching of God's Word empowered by the Holy Spirit changes lives and grows disciples.

  • we believe...

    That the Church is precious to our Lord Jesus Christ, so it should be a priority to His people through attendance, giving, and service.

  • we believe...

    That the gospel is the story of how God has made a way to reconcile sinners to Himself through the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • we believe...

    That the gospel is not just how a Christian begins new life, but the gospel is necessary daily fuel for that new life.

  • we believe...

    That the gospel is not only meant to be lived out, but it is meant to be proclaimed.

  • we believe...

    That the goal of proclamation is the glory of God through many from all nations, tribes, people groups, and languages giving praise to Jesus.

  • we believe...

    That marriage is a picture of Jesus' love for His bride, the Church, and therefore is expressed in a one man, one woman relationship until death parts them.

  • we believe...

    That there will be a day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns for His Bride.  For Christians, this will be a day of great rejoicing and for those who are not, a day of judgment.

  • We believe...

    That our Lord Jesus Christ will make all things new, that we will live on a real earth in real resurrection bodies (absent of any hint of sin) for eternity giving glory to God in all things and enjoying Him forever.
