What We Believe

Welcome to First Baptist Sapulpa

WE BELIEVE there is only ONE God, and we are created to glorify His name.  The very breath that we hold in our lungs is meant to be expelled in worship of Him. His love for us is not a figurative love, but a real, actual, tangible love that was manifested in Jesus Christ's birth, life, death, and resurrection. Jesus created humanity to bring glory to His name (Isaiah 43:7), and likewise, the Church was established for the glory of God.  Thus we as First Baptist Church Sapulpa exist solely for the purpose of glorifying the ONE true God whom all glory is due.
