Our Beliefs

Our motto, Hearts United in Loving God, Sharing Christ and Serving Others, speaks to who we are and what we are about. We are a congregation that is united in love for God and one another. We believe it is important to share the good news of Jesus Christ with all who are open to hearing God’s message of hope and salvation. We put our faith in action by serving others, not just ourselves.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only means of salvation available to humankind.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God through which God reveals His plan and purpose for our lives and His promises to us for this life and the next.

We believe in the necessity of personal faith in Jesus Christ for salvation and the promise of the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to all who place their faith in Christ.

As Baptists, we baptize by immersion and believe that baptism should follow an individual’s profession of faith in Jesus Christ.

We believe God has called us not only to salvation, but discipleship, and that God’s desire is to make us more like Jesus every day.

We believe God has given every Christian at least one spiritual gift and that all gifts are to be used for the common good in building up the body of Christ.

We believe everything we have in life belongs to God and that we are accountable to God for our stewardship of our time, our talents and our treasures.

Because we believe we are called to missions and ministry, 25% of our annual church income goes outside the four walls of our church to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and to minister to the needs of others in our community and our world in His name.

We believe in the importance of corporate worship, but that true worship of God is also a way of life.

We believe that marriage is a covenant commitment between a man and a woman.

We believe God calls and gifts both men and women, and we affirm the role of women in ministry in and through His church.
