We strive to be a church and a people who are:

Gallatin First Church is a Bible-believing congregation in the tradition of John Wesley. These are beliefs which we hold to be true and are common to Christians world-wide:
We believe in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Old and New Testament Scriptures, are inspired by God, and contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
We believe humans are born with a fallen nature, and are, therefore, inclined to do evil.
We believe those who fail to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior are lost.
We believe the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
We believe believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to salvation, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
We believe our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
