Sin

We hold that all people are sinners, that people are naturally enslaved by sins of various kinds and degrees. Furthermore, we hold that sin is the major problem in the world and that only lasting hope for the world is in the Gospel of Christ.

 

Baptistic

We are baptistic in that we believe the Bible teaches that only professing believers ought to be baptized, and that by immersion. But because we do not believe baptism of itself imparts any saving grace, we believe that God's people are found in many types of churches under many denominatonal names.

 

Community-oriented

We try to bear witness to Christ in all the communities in which we live. We are located just outside the southern boundary of Oromocto, but we strive to proclaim Jesus as Lord in CFB (Camp) Gagetown, in French Lake, in Fredericton, in Geary, in Waterville (Sunbury County), in Burton, in Haneytown, in Gagetown, in Welsford, in Fredericton Junction, in Saint John, in Hampton -- throughout New Brunswick, across Canada, and around the world.
