ABOUT OUR CHURCH'S BELIEFS
FBC Folsom is a Southern Baptist (SBC) church. Southern Baptists have prepared a statement of generally held convictions called The Baptist Faith and Message. It serves as a guide to understanding who we are as Baptists. Previous versions of the BF&M were prepared in 1925 and 1963, with subsequent revisions (most recently, 2000) seeking to remain current with contemporary social issues. Though some Southern Baptist churches prefer one statement or another (1963 or 2000), Southern Baptists are ultimately a non-creedal denomination and seek to use the BF&M to faithfully articulate historic Southern Baptist positions on various aspects of Christian doctrine. Copies of the BF&M are available at most Southern Baptist churches. The full text on the BF&M is also available online.
