Here at Faith Baptist Church we place all of our faith, hope, and trust in the grace of God.
Grace is central because it is by God’s grace that we’re even here. He has seen fit to assemble this body of believers to exalt His Son, Jesus Christ — the One whose death and resurrection gives us peace with God and the hope of Heaven. You’ll find that His grace is the common thread that runs through every ministry and expression of worship here.
We are also Baptist in our distinctives. For us this has a seven-fold meaning:
- The sole authority of the Scriptures for faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
- The soul liberty of the believers (Acts 5:29; Romans 14:5)
- The priesthood of the believers (1 Peter 2:5,9; 1 Timothy 2:5,8)
- Two church ordinances: 1) Baptism by immersion once in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; 2) The Lord’s Supper (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; 1 Corinthians 11:23-31)
- A regenerated, baptized church membership (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:41, 47)
- The autonomy of the local church (Acts 6:3; Acts 13:1; Acts 15)
- The separation of church and state (Matthew 22:21; Romans 13:1-2)
Community is likewise significant. It suggests both genuine fellowship within our church family and an open door to those around us. As members of one body, we seek to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:3). As a light in our community, we’re a place of peace for those in chaos, a place of forgiveness for the guilty, and a place of hope for the hopeless.
Church, however, is paramount because of its absolute uniqueness. While “Grace” and “Baptist” and “Community” help to define who we are, “Church” was mandated by God — as revealed in His Word. It is His designation for the assembly of people called by His name. As such, our course has been charted by God, our destiny has been planned by God, our members have been chosen by God, and our purposes have been defined by God.
We trust you’ll discover God’s grace among us. And our prayer is that we’ll live up to His name.
