Although we are an autonomous church, not governed by any outside entity, we are affiliated with and support the Southern Baptist Convention. As such, we affirm the doctrinal positions set forth in the Baptist Faith and Message (2000).
We also share a renewed commitment to our roots in the Protestant Reformation, holding to core principles known as the “five solas.” These latin phrases are translated into English as follows:
Sola Scriptura = Scripture Alone
Sola Fide = Faith Alone
Sola Gratia = Grace Alone
Solus Christus = Christ Alone
Soli Deo Gloria = Glory to God Alone
These Reformed doctrines are essential to our current preaching and teaching ministries, and can be summarized as follows: “According to Scripture alone, we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for the glory of God alone.”
