Beliefs That
Unite Us

Baptists are a people of deep beliefs and cherished doctrines. Throughout our history we have been a confessional people, adopting statements of faith as a witness to our beliefs and a pledge of our faithfulness to the doctrines revealed in Holy Scripture.

Our confessions of faith are rooted in historical precedent, as the church in every age has been called upon to define and defend its beliefs.

It is the purpose of this statement of faith and message to set forth certain teachings which we believe.

Have you ever wondered what it means to become a Christian? Are you looking for real joy in your life?
