"Ripples in the Pond"




Having been led to confess our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord, we joyfully recommit ourselves, through the gift of the Holy Spirit, to Him and one another.

We affirm as a Baptist Congregation our belief in the authority of the scriptures, active membership, believer's baptism by immersion, the individual ministry of every member, a church life where each person has a voice, freedom of conscience and the separation of church and state.

We recommit ourselves to the mission of Christ in the present. By the grace of God we will be a church where all who come to us in sincerity to find God's love will be welcomed. We will support Christian mission work in our own and other countries, mindful that we are a part of the American Baptist work. We will work and pray for cooperation among all Christians.

Acknowledging our gain in so many blessings and examples of personal improvement, yet aware of our inclination to do wrong and need of forgiveness, we confess our need of Christ as a savior, through whom we place ourselves into the keeping of almighty God and the promise of eternal life. Amen.
