Doctrinal Views & Beliefs

We are in agreement with the Baptist Faith and Message.


We believe the entire Bible, all 66 books, is inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings. Through the providence of God, the Word of God has been protected and preserved, and it is the only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.
Psalm 119:11, 89, 105; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21


We believe there is only one true, eternally existent God. He exists in three co-equal persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The triune God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things and is worthy of worship and obedience.
Genesis 1:31; Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 3:21-22; Revelation 4:11


We believe Jesus Christ is God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, shed His blood on the cross to pay the debt for our sins, was buried, was bodily resurrected, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return literally, visibly, and personally in glory and power.
Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1-3,14; Acts 1:11; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Philippians 2:5-9; Colossians 1:15


We believe the Holy Spirit is God, co-equal and co-existent with the Father and the Son. He is the Chief Convictor of sin and the Chief Agent of regeneration and sanctification. The Holy Spirit lives within every believer and empowers every believer to live a godly life.
John 14:16-19; 16:7-15; Romans 8:9,11; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Titus 3:5


We believe salvation is a free gift of God’s grace apart from human works, based solely upon Christ’s atoning death, and received only through faith in the person and finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection from death. 
2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 2:8-10


We believe the church is the body of Christ and the family of God. It is made up of saved and baptized believers who regularly join together for worship, fellowship, and ministry.
Matthew 16:18; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25


We believe it is the responsibility and privilege of every Christian to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and to seek to make growing disciples.
Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8
