What We Believe


DOCTRINE: We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God, and as the only basis for our doctrine and beliefs. It was written by men, divinely inspired, and is the perfect record of God’s revelation of Himself to man. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and the truth without any mixture of error for its matter. It is inerrant and infallible in its original manuscript, which is to be taken as verbally inspired.

NATURE: The church is a body of born-again, baptized believers voluntarily banded together for worship, missions and evangelism. We believe that the ordinances of the church are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

MISSION: In obedience to our Lord’s ‘Great Commission’, we believe that our priority is to share the good news of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible in our community and throughout the world.

The church also subscribes to the doctrinal statement of theBaptist Faith and Messageas adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention with all current amendments and reaffirmations.
