Sometimes our Church Members are asked by others:
"What religion are you? Baptist? Catholic? Protestant? Or What???
1. We are not a denomination, such as "Southern Baptist." Although we are affiliated with the IFCA International we are an indepentent local church. People with many different denominational backgrounds are comfortable to worship with us, since we do not push a particular "Religous Group", but rather to Promote an Accurate Understanding of the Bible.
2. There are many churches who use "Bible" in their names who are connected with Baptists, Mormons, or other groups. We are not connected to all who may choose to use the term "Bible" in their names.
3. To us the term "Bible Church" implies 3 distinct things about us:
I) We look to the Bible as our final authority for what we believe; it is God's final and only written Word to man, and is sufficient for faith and practice; it is our responsibility to study it and to ask God to illuminate His words to us.
II) We encourage all who worship here to live the commands of the Bible. We do not claim to be perfect, nor to be ahead of others who are Christians. We seek, with Gods help to grow in our daily walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
III) We take our job seriously to impart the truths of the Bible, Gods living Word, to others through preaching, teaching and by encouraging others to live for God.
