We are not under the control of any ecclesiastical body, but we do cooperate with the following:
- Sequoia Southern Baptist Association
- California State Baptist Convention
- Southern Baptist Convention
We contribute financially through the Cooperative Program on a voluntary percentage basis. These funds support mission efforts throughout California, North America and the world plus Baptist colleges, universities and seminaries.
Statement of Faith
We affirm the Bible as the inspired Word of God, and the only basis for our beliefs. This church accepts The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention as a general statement of our basic beliefs. These include but are not limited to the following statements:
THE SCRIPTURES: The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to Man.
GOD: There is one and only one living and true God. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
JESUS: Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. He was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died on the cross to redeem man from sin and was raised from the dead. He is the only Savior.
SALVATION: Salvation is “by grace through faith” in the Lord Jesus Christ and is available to all who will call upon His name. All true believers are kept by God and shall persevere to the end.
THE CHURCH: The church is the body of Christ which is comprised of all the redeemed of all the ages. A local church is an autonomous body of believers operating under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Their commission is to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth.
