The easiest way to describe a Baptist Church is by the use of this acrostic:
BIBLE is our only rule for faith and practice (II Peter 1:21)
AUTONOMY of the local church (Matthew 18:15-17)
PRIESTHOOD of all believers (I Peter 2:9)
TWO ORDINANCES: Baptism (Acts 2:41) and the Lord’s Supper (I Cor. 11:23-25)
INDIVIDUAL soul liberty (Rom. 14:5, 12-14)
SAVED, baptized church membership (Acts 2:47)
TWO OFFICES: Pastor (Acts 20:28) and Deacon (I Timothy 3:13)
The governing power of Trinity Baptist Church rest entirely with the members of this local body. We are a congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant. We have no formal connection with any other church or organization.
There is a lot of concern over fundamentalists these days. The word fundamental in relation to our church speaks of our perspective of the Bible. We believe the Bible to be fundamental, or essential, to what we believe. We believe that the Bible is the inspired, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God. Fundamental simply means we claim the Bible as our guide.
We believe the church is not the building, but the people. This means at TBC we emphasize relationships. We seek to help you build your relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and then we give you opportunities to build lasting relationships with other people.
