Values:

What we believe is summarized in the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message.

The Scriptures

We believe the entire Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy.

God

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the the Son of God who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world through His death and resurrection.

Humanity

We believe all people are a special creation of God, in His own image. By our free choice, we sinned against God, which separated us from Him.  As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through our own efforts and are in need of salvation.  The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore every person of every race possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

Salvation

We believe salvation involves the restoration of our relationship with God, and is offered freely to all who put their faith in Jesus Christ, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption and forgiveness of sins. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.

The Church

We believe the Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus is the head.  Each congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ through democratic processes. In such a congregation each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Its Scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him, being obedient to His Word, and sharing the good news of Jesus to the entire world.
