Hampton Falls First Baptist Church

3 Lincoln Ave, Hampton Falls, NH 03844 USA   MAP
Demographic: Suburban
Statement Of Faith: Doctrinal Statement


The First Baptist Church of Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, Inc.


We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections (Deut. 6:4; 2 Cor. 13:14).


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternally pre-existent Son became incarnate without human father, conceived by the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary. Therefore, in the Lord Jesus Christ divine and human natures were united in one Person, both natures being whole, perfect and distinct that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man (John 1:1, 2, 14; Luke 1:35).

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and, that our justification is made sure by His literal physical resurrection from the dead (Rom. 3:24; 1 Pet. 2:24; Eph. 1:7; 1 Pet. 1:3-5).

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor and Advocate (Acts 1:9, 20; Heb. 9:24; 7:25; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1, 2).


We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and, that He is the supernatural agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the Body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption (John 16:8-11; 2 Cor. 3:6; 1 Cor. 12:12-14; Rom. 8:9; Eph. 1:13, 14).

We believe that He is the divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth; and, that it is the privilege and duty of all those saved to be filled with the Spirit (John 16:13; 1 John 2:20, 27; Eph. 5:18).


We believe the holy Scripture–consisting of 66
