WHAT WE BELIEVE

​​

  We hold the 2nd London Baptist Confession of Faith 1689 as

our confession and doctrinal standard. We believe that this

historical confession best represents a solid and biblical

understanding of the doctrines of Scripture. It is our

statement of faith, what we believe and teach.
