Our Baptist heritage has taught us to 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. However, whether your religious background is Baptist or some other, we welcome all who desire to worship Christ with us! As we come together for worship, discipleship, and mission, here are a set of beliefs that form the basis of our faith and practice.
We believe in one triune God, eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:18-19, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Hebrews 1:1-4
We believe in the full deity and full humanity of Christ. Philippians 2:5-8, Luke 2:40, John 1:1-5, Hebrews 4:15
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit who indwells every Christian's life for the purpose of living a God-reflective life. John 16:7-11, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 4:30
We believe the human race is sinful and separated from God and therefore must experience the work of Christ by faith in order to have a relationship with God. Romans 3:10-20, Ephesians 2:1-3, 1 Colossians 1:13-14
We believe in the substitutionary atonement of Christ. Romans 5:6-9, Galatians 3:13-14, Philippians 3:8-11
We believe in the authority and holy inspiration of Scripture. 2 Timothy 3:16, Romans 15:4, 2 Peter 3:1-2
We believe that the church is the Body of Christ and is to be about His work of making disciples of Christ in the world. Ephesians 1:15-23, Matthew 28:16-20, 1 Corinthians 12:12-31
We believe that believers baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper are the two ordinances of the church. Matthew 28:19, Luke 22:14-23, I Corinthians 11:23-26
