Who We Are

MISSION STATEMENT

“As members of the church of Jesus Christ, we purpose to learn to love God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with everything we are and have and to love other people so that they can learn to love God, too.”
Matthew 28:1-20; Acts 1:8; Mark 12:28-34; John 13:34-35.


WHAT WE BELIEVEBaptists are one of the denominational families within the Christian church. Like other Christians, we hold some basic biblical beliefs:

  • We believe in one God who reveals Himself to us as Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the reality of sin in the world and in our personal lives.
  • We believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead to save us from our sins.
  • We believe that each person needs a personal relationship with Jesus in order to be saved.
  • We believe that it is by God’s grace that we are saved; we do not earn our salvation by good works.
  • We believe that one day, Jesus will return again.

THE BAPTIST DISTINCTIVES

  • Jesus is Lord. We believe that we are saved only through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • The Bible is God’s Word, our final authority in faith and conduct.
  • The Priesthood of All Believers: each person is created in the image of God with the right and the privilege to deal directly with God through Jesus Christ. Each person has spiritual gifts to use in the ministry.
  • A Believer’s Church: each church is made up of people who have professed faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and have come together for worship, witness, fellowship, and ministry.
  • Believer’s Baptism: we believe baptism is an ordinance, depicting Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection and representing our union with Him by faith.
  • Congregational Government: government in each church is controlled by the principles of the priesthood of all believers, the Lordship of Christ, the authority of the Scriptures, and the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Separation of Church and State.
