In short, we’re all about Jesus. This means that we take his Word, and his call to make disciples, seriously.

Here is a short video that explains why we make it all about Jesus and why he can change our lives:



Statement of Faith

Our Statement of Faith is the same as that of the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada to which we belong.

We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God: that the 66 books as originally written, compromising the Old and New Testaments, were verbally inspired by the Spirit of God and are entirely free from error: that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis of Christian union.
We believe in one God, creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ, in His eternal existence with the Father in pre-incarnate glory, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return.
We believe in the absolute and essential deity and personality of the Holy Spirit who convinces of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment: who regenerates, sanctifies, illuminates and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ.
We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality, the originator of sin, the archenemy of God and man.
We believe that man was divinely created in the image of God: that he sinned, becoming guilty before God, resulting in total depravity, thereby incurring physical and spiritual death.
We believe that salvation is by the sovereign, electing grace of God; that by the appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a vicarious, expiatory and propitiatory death; that justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and that those whom God has effectually called shall be divinely preserved and, finally, perfected in the image of the Lord.
We believe in the personal, bodily, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed, and in the judgment and conscious, eternal punishment of the wicked.
We believe that a church is a company of immersed believers, called out from the world, separated unto the Lord Jesus Christ, voluntarily associated for the ministry of the Word, the mutual edification of its members, the propagation of the faith, and the observance of its ordinances. We believe it is a sovereign, independent body, exercising its own divinely awarded gifts, precepts and privileges under the Lordship of Christ the Great Head of the church. We believe that its officers are pastors and deacons.
We believe that there are two primary ordinances for the church regularly observed in the New Testament:

Baptism: which is the immersion of the believer in water whereby he obeys Christ’s command and sets forth his identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.

The Lord’s Table: which is the memorial wherein the believer partakes of the two elements, bread and wine, which symbolize the Lord’s body and shed blood, proclaiming His death, until He comes.
