In matters of belief, we have no fixed creed as such, but we accept the New Testament as our rule of faith and practice, and prize highly our freedom to interpret the same as the Spirit of God may lead.  We observe two ordinances -- Believer's Baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper.

As we enjoy this freedom to discover truth for Ourselves, we assume a charitable and Christian attitude toward all Christians who do not agree with us in matters of Church policy and doctrine.  We beliee that Christian character and life, rather than forms and doctrinal accuracy, are the final test of Christian discipleship.

Without endangering our democracy and rights of self-government, we heartily co-operate with the American Baptist Churches - USA and The American Baptist Churches of Massachusetts (TABCOM).
