DISTINCTIVE PRINCIPLES

 

We hold the following distinctive Baptist principles:

 

1. The absolute Lordship of Christ

2. The supreme authority of the Holy Scriptures

3. The competency of the individual soul (freedom of conscience)

4. The necessity of spiritual regeneration for church membership

5. The complete separation of church and state

6. The autonomy of the local church (congregational polity/priesthood of all believers)
