Our church is committed to believing and teaching sound doctrine (Titus 1:9). We desire to
rightly understand the nature of God, the nature of man, and the nature of the relationship
between God and man. These things must be understood in accordance with the truth of
scripture and defended in a gracious manner (1 Peter 3:15).

We believe that as a church, it is not necessary to rediscover the truths of scripture in every
generation but rather, that these truths have been well known and understood for centuries by
faithful believers in many times and places. As a result, many creeds and confessions of faith
have been written which clearly and accurately summarize the truths of scripture in a systematic
form so that they may be more easily understood and taught.

It is for this reason that we believe it to be beneficial for churches to point to these confessions as
documentation of established doctrine with which we agree. Creeds and confessions are not the
origin of our beliefs, nor do they replace the bible in primacy in our application, but instead, they
affirm the teachings of scripture in a systematic manner. Our church has adopted the 1689
Second London Baptist Confession of Faith as our doctrinal statement.
