Religion

Baptists can be referred to as the ‘people of the Book’, because the Bible gives time proven principles of living for every area of life, including marriage, child rearing, family, relationships, finances, and spiritual living.

Politics

The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

Views

Your desires, ambitions, goals, and purpose change as you begin to enjoy a close walk with a living God. During this change, the outward begins to reflect the inward and is something you will neither fear nor regret, but embrace.
