Who we are!

  • We are an independent, Baptist church committed to preaching and living the whole counsel of God.
  • We are part of the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches.  A group established to fight the liberalism and modernism that spread through so many churches in the early part of the 20th century.
  • We are people who strive to love Christ and one another.
