As members of this Body of Christ, committed to God and His missions, we will strive:

To seek truth based upon the Bible, God's inspired Word,

To use and teach the Scriptures as the guide for our daily living,

To worship God with reverence,

To evangelize and witness with dignity and respect,

To confess our sins and encourage one another to accept God's forgiving grace,

To observe the ordinances of Believer's Baptism and the Lord's Supper as taught by the Scriptures,

To affirm the Priesthood of the Believer and the inclusiveness of the Kingdom of God,

To encourage all members to follow a call to serve in the Kingdom of God as laypersons and clergypersons,

To practice a careful stewardship of gifts and talents through the ministries of the church,

To pursue peace and reconciliation in our community and among all people,

To support missions locally and throughout the world, and

   
To nurture a caring fellowship which is autonomous within the Baptist family and the Christian church.

We commit ourselves to these basic principles of faith, striving to reflect the life and ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ.
