Frequently Asked Questions
What do you believe about baptism?
The ordinance of Baptism in water is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Jesus Christ as personal savior are to be baptized; thus it is a step of obedience to identify the believer publicly with Christ. To be consistent with the symbol of the burial and resurrection of Christ, Baptism must be by immersion. (Matthew 3:16, 28:19-20; Acts 8:39)
Do you support missions?
Although we have each been called by our Lord Christ Jesus to spread the Gospel to “all the world,” we cannot personally go everywhere. That is why the church, together as a body of believers, committed and selected a particular set of missionaries to support financially.
What is an independent Baptist church?
We are an autonomous evangelical church and are not affiliated with any denomination. Major decisions regarding business matters are made by the church membership. As directed by the Bible, the church pastor makes and is held accountable by God for any doctrinal or pastoral decisions. Our pastor is Dr. Paul B. Harsh, II, D.Min.
Do you perform the Lord’s Supper?
The Lord’s Supper consists of two elements, bread and the fruit of the vine. It is to be observed until Jesus returns, is memorial of the sufferings and death of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross, and provides an occasion for personal assessment of one’s life and love toward Christ. (I Corinthians 11:23-30)
Do I have to be a member to participate?
Absolutely not! While there are a small number of ministries where we ask that you be a church member to participate, most activities and ministries of the church are open to everyone who attends.
I do not know if I am going to heaven or hell – can you help me?
We have many members, of all age, sex, race, who . We may even have some who are unsure like you are. That is why we work with everyone individually to help them understand what God has called them to do in order to accept the sacrifice Christ made on our behalf to bring us into fellowship with God so that we may have eternal life.
