- To be a church that is making His House a house of prayer. (Isaiah 56:7)
Statement of Faith
The Holy Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and is basis for any statement of faith. The church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of the “The Baptist Faith and Message” as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000. We band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind. The ordinances of the church are Baptism and The Lord’s Supper. (II Timothy 3:16-17; Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 14:22-26; I Corinthians 11:20-26)
