First Baptist Church of Lometa was founded on the beliefs that:
*Jesus Christ is the sinless Son of God. He left the glories of Heaven to be born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life, went to the cross to pay for the sins of every person on earth, and rose again the third day, so that all who confess and forsake their sins, believing on His substitutionary death, will be saved.
*All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness...(2 Timothy 3:16)
*God created the universe and all therein. (Genesis 1:1)
*Jesus commanded us to preach the Gospel, baptize believers, and reach out to the poor, the hurting, the needy, the ones in prison, the sick, and the lost.
*Jesus will physically return to the earth one day.
*One day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.
Our purpose as a Church is to connect sinners with the God that made them, loves them, and died for them. We follow the Great Commission which tells us to "...go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20)

ADMIT and REPENT-ADMIT to God that you are a sinner-you have done things in your life that you shouldn't have. The BIBLE is clear that God hates sin. For example-God says "You shall not bear false witness..."(Exodus 20:16) This means that God commands us not to lie. Any liar is an enemy of God bound for hell. Have you ever told a lie? Lying is sin. One lie is enough to keep you from God and in hell forever. The BIBLE tells us in Romans 3:23 that "... all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 6:23 says "...the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord," so we need to REPENT-turn away from our sin. The BIBLE tells us in Acts 3:19 to "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out."
BELIEVE-BELIEVE that Jesus is God's Son, that He died on the cross to pay for your sins. Jesus knew our sins would keep us away from God forever, so He was willing to pay the price for all of our sins. Romans 5:8 tells us that "...God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us," and in John 3:16, "...God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." God is HOLY and JUST. If He should look at us in our sins, we would consume away, but when we believe in Jesus and repent of our sins when God looks at us all He sees is the Precious Blood of Jesus that cleanses us from all of our sins.
CONFESS-CONFESS your faith in Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Romans 10:9-10 tells us "...if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."

"Lometa First Baptist Church hosts the Capital Area Food Bank truck the third Wednesday of every month. Without their generous outreach through this program, my family would often go hungry. I am grateful to the church for the hours their members give in this effort."
