Who We Are


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.”

Our pastor from 2019 to 2020 was Nathan Garnett, so all of the audio and video content on the website is from his ministry (unless otherwise noted). 

Pastor Nathan and his wife, Sherri, are natives of Ekron, Kentucky, in neighboring Meade County.  Their three children are Maddie (24), Nick (21), and Josh (18).  He holds MA and ThM  degrees from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, has published numerous articles and biblical curriculum, and has been a minister of the gospel since 2006.
