We Are American Baptists

We Want To Know More About God Each and Everyday.

Jesus is Lord and Savior.  We are guided by God's Word through the Holy Spirit.
 

We Are People of Faith

We Want To Make Him Known To Everyone.

We are called to evangelism (Matthew 28: 19-20)
 
We celebrate two ordinances:  Baptism and The Lord's Supper open to all of the Lord's redeemed.
 

We Are People In Mission

Through Worship, Witness, Nurture, and Ministry We Shall Serve God.

We are congregational in polity.  We are committed to mission in our own community, in our nation, and throughout the world.
