A. Congregationalist – Historically, Baptists are autonomously ruled congregations. Our structure is that we are led by an organizational structure from within, but the Holy Spirit speaks through the membership of the congregation to recognize God’s calling, God’s wisdom, and God’s direction. We answer to no authority other than King Jesus.
We hold Quarterly Business Meetings to discuss matters of our Church and solicit direction and support of the Congregation. We elect officers to make daily decisions, but consult the whole of the congregation in more significant matters.
B. Believers Baptism / Regenerate Membership – We believe in baptism as a testimony of being called into faith in Jesus Christ as represented by a transformed life. Additionally, ‘baptism’ is defined as being “dunked.” Therefore we believe that upon a person’s clear profession of faith, he or she should be baptized by immersion as an act of obedience to Christ, and as a prerequisite for membership in our congregation.
C. Confession of Faith – We have a brief Statement of Faith under which we currently function. A more detailed Confession can be found as the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith.
