SEPARATION FROM FALSE DOCTRINE
Fellowship Baptist Church believes that both the Church and Christian must maintain doctrinal purity. Protection from false doctrine comes primarily from a personal study and application of God’s Word (Ps. 119:9, 105). We will not associate with or support those individuals or organizations that openly violate the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith (Rom. 16:17; Col. 2:8).
SEPARATION FROM THE WORLD
As the world is, in its nature, opposed to God, we believe that every believer is to remain in the world, but not identified with the world (1 Cor. 2:12) The only way to be a clear testimony to the world while remaining holy is to remain separate in every area of life, including media, dress, relationships, and lifestyle choices (Phil. 4:8; 1 Jn. 2:15).
SEPARATION UNTO CHRIST
Fellowship Baptist Church believes that it is possible for a person to be outwardly separated from the wickedness of the world, and yet have no true relationship with God (2 Tim. 3:5). We believe that, just as important as is it to be separated from the world, the believer must be separated to Christ (2 Pet. 1:15-16, 3:11). This involves a complete surrender to the will of God and the Word of God. A believer cannot avoid being in the world, but by living the Christ-life he is able to avoid being of the world (Jn. 17:15-17)
