Doctrinal Beliefs
 
Statement of Basic Beliefs:
 
We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God and the basis for our beliefs. The church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000. We accept the call of Christ and band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind.
 
We believe that we are called to:
 
Seek the Salvation of the Lost
 
Jesus said that He came into the world to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10). He has commissioned us to be His witnesses before the lost (Acts 1:8) and the lost are found everywhere: in our families, our communities, our nation, and in every part of the world.
 
Teach and Proclaim The Word of Truth
 
We are commanded to teach others to follow the demands of Christ (Matthew 28:19). Paul says that people will not know how to believe unless someone tells them (Romans 10:14). Faith comes from what is heard and what is heard comes by telling of Christ (Romans 10:17).
 
Disciple in Love
 
The Great Commission also teaches us to disciple people (Matthew 28:19-20). Paul said, “And what you have heard from me before many witnesses, entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2). Discipleship involves one believer teaching another believer how to reach the lost and help other believers grow…all done in Christ-like love.
 
Have an Attitude of Worship
 
Worship is an event or exercise in which we express our devotion to God and His worth to us. God’s people have always lived in an attitude of worship and they worshiped God privately and in gatherings with other believers. The spirit of Christ will not be found among a people who neglect worship. (Hebrews 10:25; Acts 2:42; Acts 13:2)
 
Pray at all times in The Spirit
 
The Scripture teaches that prayer in an intimate link between man and God. He prays for us (Luke 22:31; John 17; Romans 8:34) and we pray to Him. Jesus modeled a life of prayer and we are taught to practice a lifestyle of prayer (Ephesians 6:18).
