and making them feel welcome with us.

facility adequate to do excellent ministry - We will seek to set
long-range plan to provide an excellent facility, with creative
broad-based involvement, and responsible stewardship.
The Word of God, comprising the Old and New Testaments,
shall constitute our role of faith and practice, granting the privilege of
private interpretation upon non-essentials.
The church shall be and remain independent. It shall not be now, nor at any time
hereafter, under any denomination or federation of denominations which deny the
fundamentals of the faith and it shall remain free of all associations which
would lessen the freedom of the local church.
Unbaptized persons shall be taught the scriptural place of
believer’s baptism. Immersion shall be
the mode of baptism.
No set time shall be prescribed for the observing of the
Lord’s Table but it shall be at the discretion of the Pastor and Board and
shall be open to all born-again believers.
All persons confessing their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ
as their personal Savior may be received into the church after favorable action
by the Pastor and the Board.
