We embrace “The Baptist Faith and Message” (SBC 2000) as a general statement of our faith. Please see the full version here
The Holy Bible was written by men acting under God’s inspiration and is God’s revelation of Himself to humanity , which points to Jesus Christ. We hold that all scripture is true and is our greatest authority, which we are to obey to seek God’s will for our lives.
God is our Creator who reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, distinct in person but perfectly united in essence. God, who is all knowing and all powerful, is the only natural recipient of all honor, love, worship and obedience.
Man is the special creation of God, made in His image, created male and female as the crowning work of His creation. We have all fallen to temptation, part of a legacy of rebellion originating in our first ancestor, resulting in our eternal separation from God and our inclination towards sin from the moment of our first moral action, restored to a right relationship with God only through His grace, evidenced in the life and death of Jesus Christ.
When Jesus Christ died on the cross in substitution for the payment due for all our sins, and three days later rose to life, He obtained for us eternal redemption from sin in every part of our lives. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
The Church is a local congregation of baptized believers united by covenant in the faith and the fellowship of the gospel, observing baptism and the Lord’s Supper, obedient to Jesus’ commands and exercising His gifts, rights, and privileges in order to make disciples of all nations. Each member of the church is responsible to Jesus Christ to uphold the tenets and lifestyle modeled for us by Jesus and His disciples, holding each other accountable in community with one another.
EVANGELISM & MISSIONS
As Christians, it is our duty and privilege to go out and make disciples locally and everywhere across the world through verbal witness supported by a Christian lifestyle, as well as other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ.
We are a church family dedicated to building our relationship with Jesus Christ and with each other. The Word of God is essential to our faith. We seek to understand and obey God and His Word. We are committed to making disciples of all nations to be shepherds of God’s flock carrying out the good work God calls us to in our local and international missions.
