Christ died on the cross to give humans the promise of everlasting life, but this requires that each individual accepts Christ into his life and asks for forgiveness.

Represented in Baptist churches are equally diverse worship styles, cultural mores and approaches to Scriptural interpretation. The resulting challenges and opportunities have made the believers stronger —through fellowship, respect, mutual support and dialog, all based on a belief that unity in Christ involves growth and understanding.
