What We Believe
We, the members of the First Baptist Church of Hurricane, WV, affirm our faith and salvation wholly in the Lord Jesus Christ. Believing and practicing the historic Biblical teachings of baptism, we acknowledge and avow the following:
The sovereignty of God as Creator and ruler of the universe.

Luke 1:51–53 (Listen)

51   He has shown strength with his arm;
    he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
52   he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
    and exalted those of humble estate;
53   he has filled the hungry with good things,
    and the rich he has sent away empty.


The preeminence of Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man, as our divine Lord and Master.

Colossians 1:15–19 (Listen)

The Preeminence of Christ

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by1 him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell,


[1] 1:16 That is, by means of; or in


The presence of the Holy Spirit in the world, and in the believer, leading men and women to Jesus Christ and into the truth.

The supreme authority of the Bible and its sufficiency as our only rule of faith and practice.

The right and responsibility of private interpretation and the competency of the individual soul in direct approach to God.

The separation of church and state. The church must not interfere in matters of the state and the state must not interfere in matters of the church.

A regenerate church membership

The symbolic ordinance of believer’s baptism by immersion in obedience to the command of Christ.

The complete independence of the local church and its interdependence in associated fellowship with other Baptist churches of like faith and order.

A world-wide program of missionary fervor and evangelism in obedience to the Great Commission.
