First Baptist Church of Lomita

What We Believe

Statement of Faith

All 32 articles of the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith will serve as our statement of faith.
We believe in God the Father Almighty, the Creator of Heaven and Earth; and in Jesus Christ his only begotten son, our Lord: who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontious Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. The third day he arose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence he will come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the church of Jesus Christ, the fellowship of the Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Our Mission


Our mission is to have the Bible speak more

than us, for within God’s Holy Word is all truth

(Psalm 119:10-16)


As a church we seek to:

Exalt the Savior (Philippians 2:9-11)

Equip the Saints (Ephesians 4:12-16)

Evangelize the Sinner (Matthew 28:18-20)

We believe all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works (2 Tim 3:16-17). We also believe that the Bible is authoritative, inerrant, and infallible and will be our guiding principle for all matters of life.
