Core Beliefs

Our core beliefs begin with the conviction that the Bible is the Word of God and is to be the foundation of our faith and practice. Baptists have long called themselves "people of the Book."

We believe Jesus Christ is God’s Son, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and was crucified, buried, raised from the dead and will return for His followers.  We believed that salvation is achieved only through faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

We honor the understanding of two ordinances:  Lord’s Supper/Communion and Believer’s Baptism.  We practice open communion, inviting all believers to participate.  As for baptism, we see in Scripture that baptism was experienced after a person became a follower of Christ and we believe immersion to be the most Biblically accurate method.  Further, we believe it to be an act of obedience to our Lord which symbolizes “being buried with Him in baptism and raised to walk in newness of life in Christ.”

Among Christ’s last words on earth were some that have been called The Great Commission:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  – Matthew 28:18-20

We believe that Christ established the church to carry out this Great Commission - to preach and teach, leading people to choose Christ as Savior and Lord of their lives and to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
