Salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ is the only way God saves sinners. The works of men, their religion, and sincerity will be rejected at the judgment.
We are Baptist in doctrine and practice. We are not reform or non-denominational.
We are a local assembly of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, Who did not come to build a temple, a community, a fellowship or a chapel, but rather a church.

Our services are traditonal and conservative. We do not cater to contemporary preaching and music. We seek to worship, not celebrate. Our purpose is to worship God in spirit and in truth, and not to make people feel better about themselves.
Jesus Christ commissioned His church to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every living creature. To do this, our church supports missionaries monthly who are serving on home and foreign fields.
It has been my privilege to pastor this church since November 1980. I have also been blessed as a member of such a sweet and caring church family. Our people have a tremendous love for the Lord Jesus and the Word of God. It is the friendliest church that I have ever pastored. We gladly welcome and invite guests to visit with us. Should you desire membership, our church receives members in three ways:
- Profession of faith and baptism
- Letter of recommendation
- Statement of faith and previous baptism

In the Gospel
Jesus Christ came into this world to save sinners. The execution of such a salvation involves His death, burial and resurrection from the grave. The Holy Spirit regenerates the sinner, thus enabling him to repent and believe in Christ as Saviour and Lord. God will preserve the believer, and the believer will persevere unto the Second Coming of Christ.
In Youth Ministries
Our priority is education before recreation. The youth of our church are taught the Word of God, and memorization of the Scriptures is stressed. Biblical instruction, coupled with Christian fellowships, special programs, and youth camps, provide a proper balance in the lives of our youngsters.
We Believe and Teach
The Bible is the inerrant and infallible Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21)
God is one God manifesting Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and is absolutely Sovereign. (Psalm 115:3; Daniel 4:35)
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, truly God and fully man. He was virgin born, sinless in His life, died for sinners on the Cross, and bodily arose from the dead. He ascended back into heaven at the Father's right hand where He will remain until the time of His Second Coming. (Luke 1:35; John 1:14, 18; Romans 5:8; Hebrews 10:12)
The Holy Spirit is a person of the Godhead Who regenerates sinners and convinces them of their need of a Saviour. (John 3:1-8; John 16:8-11)
Every human being is born into the world spiritually dead in sins. Not only is he born in sins, but practices and chooses sin. He is responsible to repent of his sins and trust Christ for salvation. If he does not, he will die in his sins and go into the eternal perdition of Hell. (John 3:18, 36; Matthew 25:41)
The Second Coming will take place when Christ returns for His own, and establishes a reign of righteousness on this earth. (I Thessalonians 4:11-16; Revelation 19:11-16; Revelation 20:1-7)
