A Baptist Church That's a Little Different

Like other Baptists, we believe in:
 
  • Salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ
     
  • The Bible as the inspired Word of God; the Bible is our authority both for our faith and our daily conduct
     
  • Baptism of believers, by immersion, witnessing to our acceptance of Christ as Savior and Lord
     
  • Freedom of thought under the guidance of the Holy Spirit
     
  • The congregational form of church government; every member of the church has the right to participate in the decision-making processes of the church
     
So why are Seventh Day Baptists different?

Seventh Day Baptists observe the Biblical seventh day Sabbath (Saturday), the day established and blessed by God at earth's creation. The Sabbath was given to mankind long before any distinctions between Jew and Gentile. . . .
