Learn About FBC Ceredo

Our Affiliations

We cooperate with the Greater Huntington Baptist Association, the West Virginia Convention of Southern Baptist and the Southern Baptist Convention. We are also a part of the Ceredo-Kenova Ministerial Association in our community.

What We Believe

As a cooperating Southern Baptist Church, we declare ourselves to be in agreement with “The Baptist Faith and Message, 2000”. While we May teach some finer points of doctrine (such as what we believe about the return of Christ), our beliefs are in line with this confessional statement.

Our Purpose

Our purpose at FBC Ceredo is very simple. We want our church to be a place where people can...

  • KNOW Jesus;
  • GROW in Jesus;
  • SHOW Jesus; and
  • GO for Jesus.

Everything we do finds its motivation in these four things.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only begotten Son, that who ever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.John 3:16 (KJV)
For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace! Romans 5:17 (NIV)
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17
