Our Beliefs

We are followers of Jesus Christ who seek to honor God through worship, introducing our friends to Jesus, growing in personal discipleship, and reaching out to the world in Christian love.

We Believe…
  • that God exists eternally as one God in three uncreated persons:  God the Father, God
    the Son and God the Holy Spirit
  • that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man
  • that Christ died on the cross and was bodily raised three days later
  • that the 66 books of the Bible are the only divinely inspired books and that they are the authoritative
    Word of God for life and practice
  • that because of Adam’s sin all mankind inherit a sin nature and will face God’s judgment
  • that man is unable to earn forgiveness for sin and must receive it as a gift of God’s grace through faith
  • that the only ordinances of the church are baptism and the Lord’s Supper
  • that Jesus will return to take all those who have known Him as Lord and Savior to live with Him for all eternity

Further expression of our beliefs can be found in “The Baptist Faith and Message.”
