What We Believe
Our church has adopted the Doctrinal Statement of the Missionary Association of America.
We share these orthodox views of most Christians:
- The trinity of God
- The virgin birth and deity of Jesus Christ
- The verbal inspiration of the Scriptures
- The death, burial, and resurrection of Christ
- The return of Christ
We share these historic principles with most Baptists:
- Salvation by grace through faith alone
- Believer's baptism by immersion
- The eternal security of the believer
- The priesthood of the believer
- Religious liberty for all
- The separation of church and state
We share these principles with BMA churches:
- The church is the unit of cooperation.
- The church is autonomous, cooperating voluntarily and directly choosing all the officers, directors, and missionaries of the association.
- The church is respected, cooperating equally with the same number of voting representatives as the other churches, regardless of the size of church membership or financial contributions.
- The church is primary; the association only exists to expedite the ministries of the church.
- The ordinances of the church are given prominence.
- Baptism is an act of obedience, not an optional preference, for each believer.
- Baptism is related to the church; therefore, the church must be scriptural for its baptism to be scriptural.
- The Lord's Supper is a memorial to be observed within the context of the church, the local assembly of baptized believers.
- The mission of the church is strategic.
- Each church should evangelize its local area.
- Each church should join other churches in sending missionary personnel to other areas in the United States as well as every country on earth.
