Our Beliefs

  • Jesus Christ is our sole criterion for faith and practice.
  • The divinely inspired Word of God, the Bible, is our guidebook for Christian living and our manual for church order.
  • The 1963 version of the Baptist Faith and Message serves as our published declaration of faith.
  • We affirm the historic Baptist principles of the priesthood of the believer, the autonomy of the local congregation, a democratic church government, and the separation of church and state.
  • We take seriously the Great Commission, therefore we desire to be a missional church, personally, financially, and collectively participating in home and foreign missions.
  • We seek the leadership of the Holy Spirit in all our endeavors and ministries. We anticipate the leadership of God-called, Spirit-filled ministers of the gospel characterized by fervent biblical preaching, evangelistic zeal, sacrificial service, and Christian integrity.
  • We are conservative in theology, democratic in polity, cooperative in spirit, and evangelical in purpose.
  • We are a body of believers that intends to become a dynamic church, motivated by self-giving love, based on historic Baptist principles.
  • We use music of enduring quality for worship, edification of the church, and evangelism.
  • Our mission is to build a community of faith shaped by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, all for the Glory of God.
