Here at First Baptist Burlington we are a Bible believing, missions oriented church helping to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. We have a history of over 200 years established in the Historic City of Burlington N.J.
What We Believe
WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; that He lived a sinless life, and that through His death on the cross, He provided the only means of salvation to mankind
WE BELIEVE in His bodily resurrection from the dead, in His return to the Father, in His High Priestly intercession for believers, and in His personal and visible return to earth.
WE BELIEVE in the personality of the Holy Spirit, whom the Father sent to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; to regenerate, sanctify and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE that all men by nature and by choice are sinners, that salvation is a gift of God and is received only through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE that the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is uniquely inspired of God; that it is completely trustworthy and is the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
WE BELIEVE that baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as an expression of complete obedience to the command of the Lord Jesus to be thus baptized; that baptism sets forth the essential facts of redemption, namely, the death and resurrection of Christ, and that it also sets forth the believer’s death to sin and resurrection to newness of life.
WE BELIEVE that the Lord’s Supper is a Memorial of Christ’s death and is to be observed regularly by believers until he comes again.
WE BELIEVE that the New Testament church is a baptized body of believers, associated for worship, fellowship, service and the spread of the gospel throughout the earth.
