What We Believe
We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God and the basis for our beliefs. This church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of the Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000. We voluntarily band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind. The ordinances of the church are Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
Our purpose shall be to worship God through the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the administration of the two ordinances of the New Testament which are baptism of the believer and The Lord's Supper. We stand for and affirm the biblical covenant of marriage between one man and one woman. We believe in the religious training of children and youth, the spiritual development of all members and the winning of the world through the support of missions.
The church shall be affiliated with the Grayson County Baptist Association, the Kentucky Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.
This is an autonomous church body under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. The membership retains unto itself the rights of exclusive self-government in all phases of the spiritual and temporal life of the church. Each request for membership shall be presented to the church at the time the candidate presents himself/herself for membership.
Members are expected to be faithful in all the duties essential to the Christian life, to attend regularly the services of the church, to give regularly and systematically to its support and kingdom causes and to share in its organizational work.
The government of this church is vested in the body of believers who compose it. It is subject to the control of no other ecclesiastical body, but it recognizes and sustains the obligations of mutual counsel and cooperation which are common among Baptist churches of the Southern Baptist Convention.
