FIBC is an independent, pre-millenial, local, fundamental Baptist church located in Norfolk, Virginia. As a standard, we use the King James Version (KJV) Bible for our services, Sunday School and doctrine. We believe all mankind is born in a sinful state and bound for an eternity in hell, separated from the almighty, righteous God (Romans 3:10; 3:23; 6:23). We believe that salvation of person’s soul from hell is possible only through the gracious gift of the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross and not by any individual effort (Titus 3:5 – 7; Ephesians 2:8 – 9). We believe the gospel message is meant for everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity or personal circumstances and history (John 3:16; Romans 10:13). We also believe that, in his time, Jesus Christ will rapture the believers (the church) into heaven (I Thessalonians 4:16 – 17).
