Who We Are

WHO WE ARE

We are CHRISTIANS
We believe in and follow the Lord Jesus Christ and seek to give Him His rightful place in His Church.

We are PROTESTANTS
We believe and teach the 5 Solas of the Reformation:

  • Scripture Alone (2 Timothy 3:16,17)
  • Grace Alone (Romans 11:6)
  • Faith Alone (Ephesians 2:8,9)
  • Christ Alone (John 14:6)
  • Glory to God Alone (Romans 11:36)

We are BAPTISTS
We affirm 5 Baptist distinctives:

  • Bible as the final authority (1 Thessalonians 2:13)
  •  Regenerate church membership (Acts 2:41)
  •  Priesthood of all believers (1 Peter 2:5-9)
  •  Autonomy of the local church (Acts 6:1-5)
  •  Baptism for believers only (Matthew 28:18,19)

We also embrace 5 phrases that capture some of our goals:

  • Be a Berean (Acts 17:11)
  • By His grace, for His glory (1 Cor. 15:10 & 10:31)
  • God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him (Psalm 37:4)
  • Missions exists because worship doesn’t (3 John 6-8)
  • In essentials, unity. In non-essentials, liberty. In all things, charity (Romans 14,15; 1 Cor 16:14)
