Who We Are

There is no shortage of churches in our small country. And they are all competing for your attention.We want totellyou what kind of church we are and invite you to consider our church.

Our Name

The name of our church is The Evangelical Baptist Church. Our name was carefully chosen to reflect our theological/historical roots.


The word Evangelical says we preach the good news of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. The good news of the gospel is summed up for us in 1 Cor. 15:3-4. The apostle Paul wrote, “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the

Why did Jesus come into this world to die for sinners? 1 Tim. 1:15 says, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” And Rom. 6:23 tells us that for all who believe in Jesus, “the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Acts 16:31 says, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.”


The word “Reformed” links us to the great Protestant Reformation that began in 1517. God used Martin Luther to create a theological movement that would restore the preaching of the Biblical gospel. The Reformation has been described by historians as the greatest Evangelical revival since Pentecost (Acts 2). A study of church history would also show you that the Reformers did not start a new church movement. They were simply seeking to restore the faith that was handed down to us by the apostles (Jude 1:3) and that was faithfully preached by the Church Fathers. In other words, the Faith we hold to can be traced to the Reformers, through the Church Fathers, and all the way to the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles.


We are Baptist church. As Baptist we believe that only those who have repented of their sins and believed in the Lord Jesus for salvation can be baptized (Acts 2:41; 8:35-38; 16: 31-33). Since the word baptize means to immerse, we believe the Bible clearly teaches believer’s baptism by immersion (Matt. 28:18-20).


In the Bible, the word church is not a building. The “church” is an identifiable assembly of people gathered for the specific purpose to worship God, or as Peter put it, "to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 2:5). As a church, we have an identifiable membership under the leadership of pastors and deacons (1 Tim 3:1-13). Among other things, we are primarily a worshipping church, a Bible teaching / preaching church, an evangelistic church, and a mission-minded church.
