The Mission Boulevard Baptist Church operates Fayetteville Christian School. The school adheres to the church’s statement of faith. Major points of the Mission Boulevard Baptist Church statement of faith are as follows:
The Bible is supernaturally inspired. It is the final revelation of the will of God to man; as such, it is the basis of all our beliefs. We use the Authorized King James Version as the textbook in our church and school.
There is one living and true God, the infinite Spirit who is from everlasting to everlasting. He is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. His nature is righteous, just and loving. He is the creator and ruler of the universe, worthy of all honor, confidence, and love.
In the unity of the Godhead there are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, all equally God, of the same nature, yet fulfilling different offices in the work of redemption. The Father represents God’s authority. Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son, is the revealer of God and sacrifice for sin. The Holy Spirit convinces men of God’s truth and draws them to Christ as Savior.
We accept the Genesis account of Creation, that God directly created man in His own image. We reject the notion that living creatures evolve into new kinds of organisms.
God created man in innocence, yet man voluntarily disobeyed God and fell into his present sinful condition; and all mankind are now sinners by choice and under just condemnation.
God made humans male and female as expressed in their anatomy. Marriage is God’s institution uniting one man and one woman for life.
The devil is an actual person, created as an angel, who fell through pride and now is the enemy of God and Christ and humanity.
The Gospel is God’s means of saving man from sin. The Gospel is the good news of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ to pay for the sins of mankind. It is the Gospel of Grace by which God saves all those who will come to Him repenting of their sins and trusting Him to keep His promise to save them.
Salvation is the free gift of God. It is given by grace through faith without any works to all who receive Christ as their Lord and Savior. All believers have God’s righteousness imputed to them. They are children of God by the new birth and have everlasting life. They are also citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, and are eternally secure in Christ.
All Christians are responsible to live a pure, holy life, not in order to be saved, but to please Christ and to have an effective witness for Him.
After removing believers in the Rapture, God will judge the earth in the Tribulation; and Christ will return to rule the earth for a thousand years. After the Millennial Reign of Christ, the unsaved will be judged and believers will live forever with the Lord in a New Heaven and a New Earth.
The Church is Christ’s organization to carry the Gospel to the world and to make disciples. It is an educational institution. A church is a congregation of baptized believers covenanted together to fulfill the New Testament’s instructions to the churches. The New Testament church has been doing His work from the time that the Lord Jesus Christ founded it during His earthly ministry until today, and it will continue until the end of the age.
Because FCS is an educational ministry of the Mission Boulevard Baptist Church, we do teach the Bible from the historic Baptist perspective. FCS has had the privilege to have students of many faiths in our program. While we respect the right of others to hold different beliefs, FCS teaches and upholds the historic Baptist viewpoint.
