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 tells 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 learning from one another and teaching one another how to live in the faith, and this is to be 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 (Romans 8:34; Luke 22:31) and we pray to Him. Jesus modeled a life of prayer and we are taught to practice a lifestyle of prayer. (Ephesians 6:18)
