Jesus - God the Son, the Savior, the Hope

We believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the eternal, triune God who became a man, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, was buried, and physically rose from the grave to redeem sinful humanity. He is True God of True God, begotten not made.

He became human; conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He made his dwelling among us, living a full life without sin. His life and His death on the cross provide the only atonement that fully satisfies the righteous requirements of God for the sinner. The death of Jesus was a full and final payment for sin – redemptive, substitutional, and efficacious. The historic fact of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead is a powerful witness to his deity and is humanity’s ultimate hope in God. Jesus Christ will make a personal and imminent return to Earth. His return is a sanctifying “hope” which has vital bearing on the life of every Christian.

We are a Southern Baptist Church, partnered with the Southern Baptist Convention. We affirm and agree with the Southern Baptist Faith and Message. We have deep roots and ties to the Southern Baptist Convention, we believe in participation with Southern Baptist life. The District Church has been blessed and grateful for all the SBC has contributed to the life of our ministry. 

We are also partnered with Acts 29 Network, which is a diverse, global family of church-planting Churches characterized by:

  • Theological Clarity
  • Cultural Engagement
  • Missional Innovation

Acts 29 stands in the tradition of historic evangelical confessionalism. While we believe it is vital that the elders of each of our churches determine where they stand on doctrines of second importance, we do wish to make known our convictions on the following five theologically-driven core values: 

Gospel Centrality in all of life

  • The sovereignty of God in saving sinners
  • The work of the Holy Spirit for life and ministry
  • The equality of male and female and the principle of male servant leadership
  • The local church as God’s primary mission strategy
