What We Believe


We Believe:

  • In the Triune God - God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in perfect unity;

  •  We are all created in the image of God but fall short of God’s standard; therefore we all need redemption;

  •  By his life, death and resurrection Jesus Christ redeems us;

  •  We are redeemed when we believe in our hearts and confess with our mouths, the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ;

  •  The Bible is the telling of God’s love for us and God's plan to redeem us;

  •  We are called to live and share God’s love and redemptive plan with the world; 

  •  All are welcome in God’s house;

  •  Our African American Baptist heritage to be a valid and vital expression of the Christian faith;

  •  In two practices that govern the communal life of faith - Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (or communion);

  •  Baptism by immersion in water should take place after confession, but any form of baptism occurring after confession is acknowledged;

  •  Disciples must follow the example of Jesus and care for the poor and the disenfranchised; 

  •  Both private and communal worship are essential parts of the Christian life.
