Our purpose is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and promote spiritual growth through education, fellowship, and service. If you’re looking for a home, we are here!
The Articles of Incorporation for First Baptist Church of Ogden from 1881 define our purpose and beliefs.
- Purpose: The purpose of this church shall be the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the administration of the ordinances of the New Testament, the spiritual growth of its members through education, fellowship, missionary and philanthropic endeavor, and the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. ·
- Statement of Faith: This church is a fellowship of believers, each of whom has made a personal profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This church accepts the Scriptures as its authority in matters of faith and practice. Its understanding of Christian truth, as contained therein, is in essential accord with the beliefs of Baptist churches, but it has no statement of creed apart from the New Testament.
Any person who makes a public confession of sin, professes belief in the Lord Jesus Christ, and accepts the Lordship of Christ in daily life is eligible for church membership. We symbolize our commitment to Christ through baptism by immersion.
First Baptist Church of Ogden is affiliated with American Baptist Churches of United States of America.
