What We Believe
Baptists are not a creedal people — that is, we are not required to adhere to a set statement of beliefs. Baptists believe in soul liberty, the right of each individual before God to seek the leading of the Holy Spirit in all matters without outside coercion. That being said, there are certain beliefs and emphases that unite us as Baptists. The following statement of faith is provided, not as a tool for excluding anyone, but as an indication of what people who call themselves Baptists tend to believe. As Baptists, we agree with John Wesley who said, “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity”. The following statement of faith is not intended to be comprehensive but is, rather, a summary of core beliefs.
