Because we are a broadly evangelical church, we hold to historic Christian orthodoxy, believing in the full inspiration and authority of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, in one God revealed in three persons of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in the unique identity of Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world, and that broken, sinful people can be justified and reconciled to God only through faith in Jesus Christ.

In July 1910, a group of Powell Valley believers representing four denominations gathered around the railroad Chapel Car "Glad Tidings" near the Shoshone River to celebrate freedom, baptize new believers and heartily unite as First Baptist Church (FBC) on the common platform of faith in Jesus Christ as Savior, recognition of His sovereignty in all things, and the Word of God as the sole guide of life and practice. 107 years later, FBC became Grace Point.
