What we believe:

First Baptist Church, Iola, is a Southern Baptist Church.  Southern Baptists have prepared a statement of faith called The 2000 Baptist Faith and Message. The topics here provide only a brief, partial summary. The full text on the issue discussed is also available on the official Southern Baptist Convention’s website located at: http://www.sbc.net/aboutus/basicbeliefs.asp.


Church Membership:

Church membership is a matter of receiving Jesus as your Savior and Lord and experiencing believer’s baptism by immersion. We also receive members who have moved from other like-minded churches by letter or statement of faith.
