Beliefs


We are centered on God's Glory

We believe that God’s glory consists of the overwhelming beauty that stems from the sum total of all his attributes (e.g., his love, wrath, mercy, justice, etc.) working together in perfect harmony. We believe that we exist to glorify God by enjoying him forever. This belief is inevitably expressed through praise. We praise what we enjoy because our delight is incomplete until it is expressed in worship.


We are Evangelical

We believe in what is called the fundamentals of the Christian faith.

  • The existence of the Triune God
  • the complete humanity and deity of Jesus Christ
  • the virgin conception of Christ and his incarnation as the eternal Son of God,
  • the utter sinfulness of all humanity,
  • the substitutionary death of Christ as the only way of salvation,
  • the physical resurrection of Christ,
  • his sure return,
  • salvation by God’s grace alone through faith in Christ alone, and
  • the infallibility and divine authority of the Bible as the only faithful and true guide to what we are to believe and how we are to live.

  • Reformed beliefs include:

  • the sovereignty of God in his creation
  • providence
  • election of believers apart from any merit of their own
  • irresistible grace of God provided for and preceding the faith of the individual
  • the sufficiency of God’s grace apart from which every person is dead in sin and wholly defiled in all his/her faculties of soul and body
  • the effectiveness of Christ’ death for all those who believe in him by grace
  • the safe-guarding of all those for whom Christ died for eternal life.

  • We affirm the Southern Baptist Confessional Statement: The Baptist Faith and Message (2000). We give financially to the Cooperative Program and the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.
