Faith Statement

First Baptist Church of Lake Crystal is dedicated to knowing Christ in a very real and personal way, and helping others to know Him as well.  While Christians may have differing opinions about how to do church, there are some things we can know with absolute certainty:

The Bible is the true, accurate, life-transforming message from God to us.  In order to truly know God’s heart, we need to discover His word.

  • God loves us, and to demonstrate His love, Jesus came to earth to suffer and die to pay the penalty of my sin.     (Romans 5)
  • The Bible says that if you confess (agree with God) that Jesus is Lord (in charge), and believe in your heart (true belief leads us to action) that God raised Jesus from the dead, you can have eternal life in heaven, and an abundant life right now     (Romans 10, John 10).
  • Each person who gives his or her life to Jesus will be changed, transformed, made new, be given peace, hope, comfort, and power through God’s Spirit                      (2 Corinthians 5).

We would love to assist you in your spiritual journey.  If you would like to know more about having a personal relationship with Christ, we’d love to hear from you.
