Our Beliefs

  1. The inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures as originally given, their verbal inspiration by God and their supreme authority as the only rule of faith and practice.
  2. The Trinity of the Godhead: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who are the same in substance, equal in power and glory.
  3. The essential, absolute and eternal deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; His conception by the Holy Spirit; His birth of the virgin Mary; His real but sinless humanity; His voluntary humiliation in life as a Man of Sorrows culminating in His substitutionary and atoning death as a sacrifice for sin; His resurrection from the dead on the third day in the very body that had lain in the tomb; His ascension into heaven as the only and eternal Mediator between God and man; and, His coming again in power and glory.
  4. The personality and deity of the Holy Spirit through whom the soul is born again to saving repentance and faith and by whom the saints are sanctified through the truth.
  5. Man's utter ruin through the fall and his salvation solely by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; and, man's only ground of acceptance before God is the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ.
  6. The resurrection of the body, the judgment of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
  7. The spiritual unity of all who truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and their duty to maintain in themselves and in the Church a standard of life and doctrine that is in conformity with the teaching of God's holy Word.

For a fuller statement of faith please see the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689.
We call ourselves a "Reformed" Baptist church because we hold to the historic faith expressed so clearly by our forefathers during the Protestant Reformation and because we seek to humbly follow in that biblical tradition of the primacy of God in salvation, church life, and the world.
