what we believe

 
We believe in one God who exists in three persons: God, the Father, created us and loves us more than we realize; God, the Son, is Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord; and God, the Holy Spirit, points us to Christ and comes to live in us once we recieve Christ.
 
We believe that the Bible is God's absolutely perfect Word for us to understand how to trust in Christ and how to live for Him.
 
We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save us from our sins and that receiving His gift of salvation gives us eternal life.
 
We believe that everyone will spend eternity somewhere and that people who receive Christ will go to Heaven while people who reject Christ will go to Hell.
 
We believe that membership in our church involves receiving Christ and being baptized by immersion to reflect our new life in Him.
 
We believe that God has called Christians to share the good news of Christ with all people everywhere and to grow toward maturity in our walk with the Lord.
 
We believe that God owns everything we possess and that He intends for us to be wise stewards of the resources He has given to us.
 
We believe that Christ will return one day soon in order to bring final judgment on everyone and that Christians will go with Him to heaven while people who have rejected Him will be left behind to go to Hell.
 
For a more in-depth description of what we believe, you will find the Baptist Faith and Message at http://www.sbc.net/bfm/bfm2000.asp.  Our church is affiliated with the Mississippi Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention.  As a Southern Baptist congregation, we affirm The Baptist Faith and Message as our doctrinal foundation.
