We bond ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, personally committed to sharing the glad story of salvation to the lost. The ordinances of the church are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper Communion. The government of the church is vested solely in the body of believers who compose. It is subject to the control of no other ecclesiastical body, but it recognizes and sustains the obligations of mutual counsel and cooperation that are common among Baptist Churches. In so far as is practical, this Church will operate with and support the District Association and State Convention affiliated with the National Baptist Convention U.S.A., Incorporated.
