The Mission Statement of First Baptist Church of Pearl River is the basis and purpose for which all activities, programs, and decisions are made. That statement is as follows:
"Building Spiritual Foundations for This and Future Generations."
We are a congregation that is united in love for God and one another. We believe in sharing our faith in Jesus Christ with all who need to hear the message of hope and salvation. We also put our faith in action by serving others.
As members of First Baptist Church we acknowledge God, Jehovah, as sovereign over all creation. We affirm that in love He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, as the atoning sacrifice for sin, everlasting life, and the indwelling by the Holy Spirit. Because of receiving these gifts, Jesus is Lord in our lives, and our relationship with Him takes precedence over all else.
We affirm that His inspired Word is completely without error on any subject it mentions and is, therefore, authoritative in our lives, both now and for eternity. We believe in and practice believers baptism by immersion.
