Come Fellowship with us around the Word of God.
- We gather for verse-by-verse exposition of God’s Word.
- We honor our Baptist and Reformed heritage.
- We provide a place to raise your children according to God’s values and not the world’s.
- We worship God reverently and joyfully.
God has decreed in himself from all eternity, by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably, all things that come to pass…
—The Second London Baptist Confession of 1689
Our church uses and honors historic Christian confessions, especially the Second London Baptist Confession of 1689. This confession is a slight revision of the historic Westminster Confession of Faith.
Confessions are teaching documents, tools for the proper formation of the saints in sound doctrine. The Bible is of course, the ultimate standard of doctrine; it is Christ speaking directly to his church. Nevertheless, as the Reformed Baptist Preacher Charles Spurgeon once said, tried and true Christian resources are vitally important:
It seems odd that certain men who talk so much of what the Holy Spirit reveals to themselves should think so little of what he has revealed to others…. A respectable acquaintance with the opinions of the giants of the past might have saved many an erratic thinker from wild interpretations and outrageous influences.
CHURCH MEMBERSHIP COVENANT
Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.
We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to abstain from all appearances of evil; and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the Kingdom of our Savior.
We moreover engage that, when we remove from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
