what DOES THE CHURCH believe?
We accept the Bible as the inspired Word of God and as the ultimate authority in matters of faith doctrine and Christian living. This Church accepts “The Baptist Faith and Message” as most recently adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention as an affirmation of our basic Christian beliefs and as a statement of our faith.
WHAT IS EXPECTED AS A MEMBER?
At First Baptist Church of Cypress we never ask our members to do more than the Bible teaches. We expect our members to obey what Jesus commands every follower of his to do. These responsibilities and practical commitments are spelled out below in the Membership Church Covenants.
1. The Membership Covenant is a commitment to CHRIST and to His CHURCH.
2. The Maturity Covenant is a commitment to the HABITS necessary for growth.
2 Pt. 3:18; 1 Tim. 4:7
3. The Ministry Covenant is a commitment to discover and practice my Spiritual gifts and abilities to SERVE God and others. 1 Pt. 4:10; Rom. 12:6-8
4. The Missions Covenant is a commitment to SHARE the Good News with others. 1 Pt. 3:15
