We believe the Bible is the Word of God.

We believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross as payment for our sins, and rose from the dead on the third day. We believe that the only way a person can go to Heaven when he dies is to first place his faith in the payment that Jesus Christ provided with His shed blood on the cross. Dunbar First Baptist Church is just that, a Baptist church. Once a person is saved by putting his faith in Jesus, we are Commanded to be baptized by immersion to show to others what took place when we trusted Christ; we do this in obedience, not to save us but to show that we have been saved. We believe in participating in the Lord’s Supper (Communion) on a regular basis to remember the payment Jesus made for us and to express our love to Him for that payment. The Lord’s Supper is not kept to take us to Heaven but to thank Jesus for His sacrifice.

We believe that the Bible is what it claims to be: The Word of God.

We take instruction from the Bible literally; we believe what it is actually saying, not that it is an allegory or a fable. We take instruction from the Bible in the areas of life and faith and go to it for the answers to life. In a day when opinion polls and media agendas steer our social conscience, we believe that we should first seek God’s opinion on any subject before forming our own.

Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop

“…Seeing Christ at Christmas has made a significant impact on my life. In the fall of 1982, I decided to make a wormy chestnut roll top desk and give it to a pastor at Christmas. I felt as if I was one of Santa’s Elves working in his little workshop! I worked on the project in the garage of our log home during the early […]

Idiom Of Hand

Well, we have had a great and challenging time with the series around the idiom “heaven”. Lives were changed thru these sermons! God has laid on my heart to do a series of sermons on the idiom of “hand”. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “idiom” as an expression that cannot be understood from the meanings of its separate words but that has a separate meaning of its own: […]
