What We Believe
The church has adopted The Baptist Faith & Message, 2000 as its statement of faith. We are an independent, autonomous, local church which voluntarily and freely cooperates with the Metro Baptist Association, the Mississippi Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.
The church has adopted the following Mission Statement for its work and identified 5 Core Values that shape our priorities and fellowship together.
We exist to proclaim the greatness of God through Jesus Christ
as the eternal hope of all peoples.
Personal Faith in Jesus Christ
In Jesus alone our lives find joy and purpose. By looking to the work of Christ for forgiveness and salvation, we find hope for this life and for eternity.
Authority and Sufficiency of the Bible
Authored by God himself, the Bible is unlike any other book. God’s Word speaks with authority in our lives and reveals the essential nature and character of both God and man.
A Christ-Transformed Life
Through faith in Christ, we are rescued from the power of sin and given new life. Through the presence of his Spirit in us, we grow more and more in his image.
Biblical, Grace-Filled Relationships
God created us to live in relationship with Him and others. It is through relationships that we love God and we love others.
Worldwide Worship of Christ
That all the world will worship Him, the mission of Jesus Christ himself directs our work as we proclaim Him among all peoples.
As current events/issues arise, the Elders may publish positions on those questions to provide clarity and wisdom for the congregation and community to consider.
