About Us

Elaboration of Our Beliefs

The Gospel message of the Bible is our central and most important belief. However, since there are so many opinions about what the Bible teaches, it is also important to elaborate on our beliefs. Here is a link to the Baptist Faith and Message, which represents what we believe the Bible teaches. It is not our final authority. The Bible is. When reading through the BF&M, you will find links to the relevant Scripture references for each point.

We believe in the sovereignty of God as well as the responsibility and accountability of man before God. We do not pit these two truths against each other because the Bible does not pit them against each other.

The Bible teaches that Joseph's brothers sold him into Egypt, but it also teaches that God sent Joseph into Egypt. The Bible teaches that wicked men were responsible for putting Jesus to death, but it also teaches that it all happened according to God's preset plan. These are just two examples.

Though we cannot fully comprehend such things as this, we believe what Scripture teaches and worship God for it.

"Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
    [34] “For who has known the mind of the Lord,
        or who has been his counselor?”
    [35] “Or who has given a gift to him
        that he might be repaid?”
    [36] For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen" (Romans 11:33-36).

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
        neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
    [9] For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
        so are my ways higher than your ways
        and my thoughts than your thoughts" (Isaiah 55:8-9).



Our Latest Prayer Requests:

In August of 2015 we partnered with Anchored in Truth Ministries. Who woul've thought?! A family from Nazareth, PA and a church from Muscle Shoals, AL would partner together for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the glory of God? But God brings people together for his purpose; all credit to him.
