To The Glory of God

What We Believe

About the Bible

The Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God in its entirety and that it does not contradict itself. It is our guide.

About God

There is one God, composed of three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that all things were created by Him.

About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Savior, and the Son of God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and was raised from the grave. He will return as our victorious Lord.

About Salvation

Salvation comes only through Jesus Christ and cannot be earned. It is a gift of God. Every person who is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven.

About Baptism

Baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christ’s command.

About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is a person, is God, and has all the divine characteristics. He indwells all believers, baptizes and seals them at the moment of salvation. The Holy Spirit is the divine helper, assistant, counselor and instructor and His work is to reveal Christ, convict of sin, lead to repentance, guide believers, comfort, strengthen, and sanctify the soul.

About the Church

The New Testament church is a local body of believers who together worship Jesus Christ, edify the believers, and evangelize the lost.

 

 

Baptist Faith & Message

“Baptists cherish and defend religious liberty, and deny the right of any secular or religious authority to impose a confession of faith upon a church or body of churches. We honor the principles of soul competency and the priesthood of believers, affirming together both our liberty in Christ and our accountability to each other under the Word of God.
Baptist churches, associations, and general bodies have adopted confessions of faith as a witness to the world, and as instruments of doctrinal accountability. We are not embarrassed to state before the world that these are doctrines we hold precious and as essential to the Baptist tradition of faith and practice.
As a committee, we have been charged to address the “certain needs” of our own generation. In an age increasingly hostile to Christian truth, our challenge is to express the truth as revealed in Scripture, and to bear witness to Jesus Christ, who is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
The 1963 committee rightly sought to identify and affirm “certain definite doctrines that Baptists believe, cherish, and with which they have been and are now closely identified.” Our living faith is established upon eternal truths. “Thus this generation of Southern Baptists is in historic succession of intent and purpose as it endeavours to state for its time and theological climate those articles of the Christian faith which are most surely held among us.”
