As a church, we are delighted to have you visit our website. Our heart-felt prayer is for people to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and become actively involved in a Bible-believing, Bible-preaching Baptist church that cares for them.
We preach sound Bible doctrine, and a life of service and devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word. Our music is conservative and up lifting to the soul. On Sunday evenings, we sing favorites out of the hymnal for about 20-30 minutes before the message.
Out of conviction, we use the King James Bible for study, preaching and the teaching of God's Word. We have an "Invitation" or "Altar Call" after the preaching services. This is to allow those who would like to receive Christ as Saviour to come forward and have one of our trained counselors pray with them. The "invitation" is also for those who would like to come and pray and talk to the Lord about anything that may be on their heart.
If you are in our area, or traveling through, please feel free to stop in and visit any or all of our services. Remember .... God loves you.
