What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of First Baptist Church of Marilla based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

True God

There is one true and living God, infinite,
the Maker and Supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth.
 The Godhead or Trinity is made up of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  


Written by men of God that were inspired by the Holy Spirit and free from error.  

Virgin Birth

Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit in a miraculous manner, as no other man ever was born or can be born of woman, and that He is both Son of God, and God the Son.
