Statement of Faith
This church shall be composed of baptized believers in the Lord Jesus Christ united by a common covenant for the worship of Almighty God, the propagation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the world about us, even unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Matthew 28:19-20)
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instructions; that it has God as its author, salvation for its end and truth without any mixture of error for its mater; that it reveals the principles by which God shall judge us and therefore is and shall remain to the end of the world the true center of Christian vision and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried.
The church shall take the Holy Bible as its only rule of order, faith, and practice, by which all matters of faith and conduct are to be governed. We will cooperate with the local association of Baptist churches of like faith and order, the Georgia Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). We will subscribe to the Cooperative Program of Missions of the SBC and to the general Articles of Faith recommended by the SBC adopted May 9, 1963 and revised by the SBC June 14, 2000. Copies are available upon request. This Statement of Faith is in no way to be construed as a Creedal Statement but as a general statement of what Southern Baptists believe the New Testament teaches.
The Great Commandment – Matthew 22:37-40
“Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
The Great Commission – Matthew 28:19-20
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”
