WHAT WE BELIEVE
1 The Bible is our sole and final authority for faith and practice. Our goal is to reach the world with the message of Christ in His compassion and love. We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Bible. We believe that the Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed. We hold the highest view possible of scripture.
2 We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men.
3 We believe that salvation is solely by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus Christ died for the sins of men, and every person who puts his faith in Him as Lord and Savior receives freely the gift of eternal life. Nothing needs to be added to the finished work of Christ and faith in Him for salvation. The Scripture teaches there is no other way that a man can come to God except through His Son Jesus Christ.
4 We believe that the New Testament church is a local assembly of baptized believers who have voluntarily joined themselves together to carry out the Great Commission.
5 We believe the "Blessed Hope" of our Lord's return is literal, personal, visible, imminent, premillennial, and pretribulational.
Our mission at FBC Tavares clear. We wish to honor and exalt the Lord Jesus Christ by telling the world about His marvelous grace and love. We hold the Holy Bible to be His word, and because of that, we endeavor to teach its riches clearly and accurately for the edifying of believers and the building of the church. We are passionate about the world getting to know Jesus through His word and therefore are strongly supportive of missions, and any Biblical endeavor to present the good news of salvation to mankind.
If you believe the Bible is God's sure word to mankind and wish to know it better because of that, then Gateway is the place for you. We strive to make all aspects of the service to be full of reverence, relevance, worship and encouragement. In the spirit of this, we will always give the highest honor to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word. We hope you will come and grow with us.
