As Pastor, I want to take this opportunity to invite you personally to our church. I believe you will find a warm, friendly church where all are welcome.We are a Bible-believing church that still proclaims the historic Christian faith. We accept as a general confessional standard for Baptists – The Baptist Confessions of 1644, 1689 and 1742.

We urge you to give serious consideration to becoming a part of this local assembly, if you are an immersed believer and do not have a church home.

If you are not a Christian, but would like to talk with someone about what it means to be a Christian, please feel free at any time to contact me for spiritual counsel and prayer.

It is our desire to minister to your spiritual needs.

James D. Kirby, Pastor
