Mission Statement

"Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love the brethren, be pitiful, be courteous..." - I Peter 3:8

Our Beliefs


We believe the absolute, sole, authoritative rule for faith and practice is the perfect, preserved word of God. "The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in the furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from generation forever. (Psalms 12:6-7, Proverbs 30:5, and 2 Tim 3:15-17)”



We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His vicarious atonement, His bodily resurrection, and His second coming. (John 1:1; Isa. 7:14; I John. 2:1-2) 



We believe salvation is "by grace through faith" in the finished work of Jesus Christ, and "not by works of righteousness which we have done." We adhere to the Bible position that the believer's soul is eternally secure after salvation. (Eph. 2:8-9; Tit. 3:5; John 5:24) 



We believe in two scriptural uses of the word "church" (the spiritual body of Christ, consisting of all believers, and each local assembly of believers). We believe that all people who have been born again are a part of "the church, which is his body," and therefore should join an autonomous local church. We believe in two church ordinances: Water baptism and the Lord's Supper, and two offices: Pastor and Deacon. (I Cor. 1:16, 11:23-27, 12:13; Eph. 1:22-23; I Tim. 3:1-13) 



We are Baptist in doctrine and traditional in music and worship. We believe and teach that the Holy Spirit sovereignly gives gifts to each and every believer for the edification of the whole church. Certain gifts such as apostleship, tongues, prophecy, miracles and healings were initially manifested in sensational ways, to authenticate the message of the apostles during the early stages of the church. And while any and all gifts are still used to support God’s message and will throughout the world, these sensational gifts are not as widespread as before and are given as determined by the Holy Spirit, not by request, or desire of the believer. We believe in practical biblical Christianity: prayer, personal work, giving, ministering to the saints, and a daily walk with Jesus Christ. We subscribe to moderate dispensationalism and are anti-Calvinist in theology.

Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
