We believe

God:  God is the one God who has chosen to reveal Himself to us in three ways, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  He created all people in His own image and all things for His glory.

Jesus: We believe Jesus is the Son of God and the Savior for all mankind. His earthly life is the example of how we should live.

The Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit convicts and converts all who believe in Christ, teaches the church in the voice of the Living Christ and empowers the church and all believers for the mission of Christ in the world.

The Bible: We believe in the authority of Scripture. We believe the Bible, under the Lordship of Christ, is central to the life of the individual and the Church. We affirm the freedom and right of every Christian to interpret and apply scripture under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

Sin and Salvation: All people are separated from God by sin, but Jesus has overcome that sin through His life, death and resurrection. We believe salvation is the free gift of God’s grace, received through our exercise of faith in Jesus Christ.

Service and Evangelism: We believe God has called and gifted all believers for service and we affirm the call of men and women in all areas of Christian ministry. We believe the Gospel is spread through Evangelism, which is the proclamation of the Word, acts of love, justice and peace-making. We believe Evangelism is the entire life of the Christian.

Four Basic Freedoms of Baptist Belief: We affirm the basic Baptist principles that have historically shaped the Baptist tradition, best expressed in the following four freedoms:

  Soul Freedom: We believe in the priesthood of all believers and the equality of every church member.

  Bible Freedom: We believe in the authority of Scripture under the Lordship of Christ without the imposition of creedal statements

  Church Freedom: We believe in the autonomy of every local church and affirm every church’s right to determine its faith, practice and leadership without outside interference.

  Religious Freedom: We believe in full religious liberty and the separation of church and state.
