Our church is steadfast in the baptist doctrine–in the breaking of bread, in fellowship, and in prayer. Part of our mission is to perfect and mature saints for ministry. And to be a church that grows in faith, hope, and in the love of Jesus Christ.
Our mission is to impart the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ to the universe of mankind, to admonish them to receive the gift of His Holy Spirit, to empower and mature the total person as we confidently await the second coming of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Faith comes from hearing the message… -Romans 10:17
Statement of Faith
We believe in one God,
The Father; The Almighty
Maker of Heaven and Earth,
Of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
The only Son of God, begotten from the Father;
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
Begotten not made, of one being with the Father.
Through Him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation,
He came down from Heaven
by the power of the Holy Spirit.
He became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.
For our sake, He was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
He suffered death and was buried.
On the third day, He rose again in accordance with Scriptures.
He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right Hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His
Kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
Who proceeds from the Father and Son.
With the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy, universal and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
And the life of the world to come.
After this, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: – Genesis 15:1
