Understanding the Dangers of False Doctrine

As a leading authority in the community, First Baptist Church of Okemos aims to shed light on the perils associated with false doctrine. In today's age, when information is abundant but not always accurate, it is vital to navigate the intricate web of belief systems with caution.

The Impact on Faith

False doctrine can greatly jeopardize an individual's faith and spiritual growth. Unfounded teachings can lead to confusion, doubt, and a distortion of the core principles that shape one's connection with the divine. It is essential to equip yourself with the knowledge necessary to discern truth from falsehood.

Exploring First Baptist Church of Okemos' Teachings

First Baptist Church of Okemos firmly believes in upholding the integrity of true doctrine. Our dedicated team of theologians and spiritual leaders has meticulously crafted a doctrine rooted in biblical truth, wisdom, and love.

The Guiding Principles

Our teachings center around the fundamental principles of Christianity, such as:

  • God's Sovereignty: We affirm God's absolute authority and control over all things.
  • Salvation through Grace: We emphasize that salvation is a gift freely given through God's grace and not earned through our own efforts.
  • Divine Trinity: We believe in the one true God who exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ as Savior: We celebrate Jesus Christ as the Son of God who sacrificed Himself for our redemption.
  • Scriptural Authority: We recognize the Bible as the inspired word of God and the ultimate authority for faith and practice.
  • Christian Community: We prioritize fostering a loving and supportive community where individuals can grow in their faith.

In a world filled with an overwhelming amount of information, it is crucial to approach it with discernment. First Baptist Church of Okemos encourages individuals to:

1. Cultivate Biblical Literacy
