What We Believe...
We believe the Bible is the authoritative Word of God and is without error. The Bible is the basis for our teaching, preaching, ministry, family life, and our outreach to the world.
We are a Southern Baptist Congregation that accepts the Baptist Faith and Message with a long heritage of service to the community and world in Christ's name.
We actively believe in Christ's Commission to go and make disciples "of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit." This is a mandate for us to participate and actively support missions in our community, region, nation and internationally.
We are a growing and diverse congregation that seeks all people of all backgrounds to find Christ and grow in a personal relationship with Him. We welcome all persons to our worship services and recognize that we are all equal before Christ- each of us coming to Him as sinners in need of salvation.
We believe that one very important way to lead our community to Christ is through meeting the challenging physical needs of many people. This calling had led to the establishment of several ministries to reach our community and is the thrust of our outreach programs.
We believe in a strong Bible-based teaching and preaching ministry which is done through our Sunday School, our regular Wednesday evening prayer and Bible study and focused Sunday evening Bible study events. We strongly emphasize teaching ministries with our youth through a variety of challenging programs.
We endeavor to minister to our fellowship and community through visitation, fellowship, outreach and crisis ministry.
Our congregation uses a blend of music in our morning worship that includes: traditional hymns, Gospel music, and Bible-based contemporary music.
