Founders Baptist Church exists for God’s pleasure and to bring glory and honor to His name and the name of His Son, Jesus Christ (Col 1:15-19). This is done through the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of its members to attain unity of faith and true knowledge of Christ to spiritual maturity (Eph 4:11-16). Thus, we can be light in a darkened world in word and in deed (Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Eph 5:7-8). The church shall be devoted to equipping of the saints, worship of our God, watchcare of its members, and witnessing to the lost world of the grace and mercy of our God toward them (Matt 28:19; Eph 4:11-16).
Because we believe that the Holy Bible is the Inspired, Infallible, and Inerrant Word of God, it alone is and will be the basis and authority of answering any and all questions regarding the purpose, structure, and function of the church. The following five essential and non-negotiable statements of faith are the foundation and framework for everything we believe and practice.
