Statment of Basic Beliefs

 

The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the basis for any statement of faith.  The Church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963.  We voluntarily band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind and to minister to all.  The ordinances of the Church are Believer's Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
