What We Believe!

On August 21, 2017

ABCAs an American Baptist Church affiliate we affirm that God through Jesus Christ calls us to be:

  •  A Redeemed People

  •  A Biblical People

  • A Worshiping People

  • A Missional People

  • An Interdependent People

  • A Caring People

  • An Inclusive People

  • A Contemporary People

  • We Further Believe:

  • That God has called us forth to such an hour as this.
  • That we live with a realizable hope.
  • That all things are held together in Christ.
  • That all creation will find its ultimate fulfillment in God.
  • That we shall see the One whose we are.
  • That Jesus shall reign for ever and ever.

In 1998 American Baptist Churches of the USA adopted an Identity Statement, “We Are American Baptists” which is an expression of Christian Faith representative of American Baptists.  This comprehensive statement clarifies each of the affirmations above as well as elaborates on the ways American Baptist Churches witness to their faith in the world today.
