What We Believe

 China Baptist Church believes it has a  multifaceted  mission. We believe that God is calling us, His Church, to: 

 * See God and His will for our lives through strong biblically  grounded  teaching from our pulpit and our classrooms.

 * Fulfill His calling to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism and discipleship programs.

 * Provide for the individual spiritual and, if necessary, physical needs of the church body.

 * Increase the membership of the church through outreach into our  community.

 * Seek out, promote and provide regular opportunities for fellowship.

 * Be a light and inspiration to our community, working to improve the quality  of life.

 * Provide for the present and future needs of the church by being good stewards of the collecting, investing and distribution of God's financial provisions.


We believe that as we submit to the authority of the Holy Spirit and we work toward achieving these goals, we will be doing God's work in this community. Furthermore, as we accomplish His work, the body at China Baptist Church will become an increasingly greater Christian influence in our area.
