When We Gather together

On most weeks, you can find us…

  • on Sunday mornings at 10 AM for Bible study
  • on Sunday mornings at 11 AM for Worship
  • on Wednesday nights our Children & Youth begin at 6:00 and Adults at 6:30 for our midweek activities.

Our beliefs

We believe that the life God wants us to have is found only in a relationship of faith in Jesus Christ.  Only in Jesus can we experience the forgiveness of our past, the empowerment for our present, and the hope for our future.  For a more detailed expression of our faith you can click HERE to download a copy of the Baptist Faith and Message.

  • the spiritual life

    We believe that a healthy and balanced life is the result of a life that is led and nurtured by the Holy Spirit of God.  So we are committed to spiritual disciplines like prayer, bible study, service, and worship.

  • the family

    We believe that loving relationships are important for a balanced and healthy life. Because the home is the training ground for those relationships, we are committed to support, encourage, and cultivate healthy relationships within the home and within the church family.

  • the bible

    We believe that the Bible is God's inspired and inerrant Word.  It is both timeless and timely so it is relevant and trustworthy for the specific problems of today's living.
