We are a non-denominational church, though doctrinally we line up closely with most Baptist churches.
We believe that the gift of tongues has ceased, and that it was a special gift given to the early church during the apostolic age to enable the gospel's early reach to people of all nations and languages (Matthew 28:19-20).
Although we do not practice tongues in our services, we do not consider our position on this issue to be a core essential of our faith, and we are happy to fellowship with believers who differ with us on this issue.
We believe that the church has been given two sacraments that hold rich and deep symbolic meaning. Both involve physical acts that mirror the spiritual reality. One is communion, in which believers act out the partaking of Christ's body, and the other is baptism. In baptism, we make a public profession of faith, acting out our immersion in Christ (Galatians 3:27), and identifying with his burial and resurrection (Romans 6:3-4).
We believe that baptism is commanded of all believers, and that it should be done in response to receiving the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:47-48). Thus believers are not saved by being baptized (Ephesians 2:8-9); rather, they get baptized because they are saved.
Because we believe that baptism is commanded of believers in response to salvation, we do not practice the baptism of infants.
