We are a Reformed, Elder-led, Congregational, Baptist Church. If you don’t understand all of those descriptors, don’t worry. We’d love to explain.
Reformed is a word that refers to the teachings of the “Reformers” of the sixteenth century like Martin Luther and John Calvin. To read more about these doctrines see the London Baptist Confession of Faith. (External Link)
Elder-led means that we have a group of biblically qualified, ordained men (vocational and non-vocational) who serve the local church by leading and teaching the Word of God. More on our Elders, Deacons, Pastors and church Staff.
Congregational means that we hold a very high view of church membership. Important decisions such as the call of Elders and Pastors are affirmed by the congregation. As a congregational church, we are autonomous and have no liturgical hierarchy directing the affairs of the church.
As a Baptist church, we believe the scripture teaches that baptism is an ordinance only for believers, to be performed by immersion.
