Thank you for your interest in our ministry. We understand that anytime someone is looking for a church home there will be questions. We have taken the time to answer some frequently asked questions that you might have. If the information below does not answer all of your questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
What’s in the name Baptist?
This church is a Baptist church because of Bible conviction and practice. We believe and practice the traditional and historical Bible teachings of the Baptist faith. As Baptists, we believe the following: The Bible is our sole authority. We believe in the autonomy or self governing of the church. No man needs an intercessor or priest to approach God on their behalf. Every believer can come boldly to God through Jesus Christ. There are two ordinances of the church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Each person is individually responsible for his decision to accept Christ. Every individual is given a free will by God and must either accept Him or reject Him. We believe in the separation of church and state. We believe in two offices of the church: pastor and deacon. It is our belief that the membership of the church is to be a saved membership.
How is the leadership of the church structured?
Ultimately, Christ is the head of the church. The pastor is the “overseer” and “shepherd.” The pastor prayerfully seeks God’s direction in the leading of the church and is assisted by the pastoral staff and deacons who are a group of men elected by the church.
Do you have contemporary or traditional services?
We are a traditional church with traditional values. We believe the Bible is still relevant and is the foundation upon which our church is built. We still sing the traditional hymns which contain not only Bible doctrine but also cultivates an atmosphere for the magnification of Jesus Christ through the preaching of the Word of God. Not only do we believe that traditional services are Scriptural, but we also believe they put the focus on God, not on man.
