Our Beliefs

What We Believe

As a Southern Baptist church, we support the Baptist Faith and Message as a clear and concise statement of what we believe as Christians. The Baptist Faith and Message is not an addition to the Bible, or in any way sacred in itself, but is an agreed-upon statement of what we, as Southern Baptists, believe the Bible says about God, Life, Family, and the Church. Click here to read the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 from the Southern Baptist Convention website.


Our Purpose- Locally

We believe that the Lord has called the local church to continue His mission: to seek and to save that which is lost by making disciples who make other disciples. We believe that the church has 5 functions: Worship, Discipleship, Fellowship, Evangelism, and Ministry.


Our Purpose- Globally

As a Southern Baptist church, we give to the Cooperative Program to support the ministries of the The Baptist General Convention of Texas, the Colorado Baptist Association, Texas Baptist Encampment, and Port Ministries. These organizations support missions for Christ in our local area, our state, our nation, and around the world. Our individual members participate in mission activities locally and internationally through the Convention, the Gideons, and other missionary organizations.
