You can learn a lot about someone when you understand their core beliefs.
The King’s Grant Baptist Church is a united, harmonious fellowship of compassionate, servant-oriented and mission-minded believers who strive to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ.
The Church is a prayerful body of believers working to be more evangelistic and open to change and transition in answering God’s call to service. Each year a large number of the congregations are involved in local, state-wide and international missions.
The congregation supports its Church leadership and Church ministry initiatives. In connection with governance and administration, the congregation nominates and elects its committees, then respects and supports their efforts, resolving issues in a spirit of Christian harmony.
The Church is ecumenical, cooperating with other churches to serve the community. The Church supports the traditional Baptist principles of: religious liberty, autonomy of the local church, the priesthood of the believer, soul competency Believing the Bible to be the sole authority for faith and practice, the Church rejects any attempts by external organizations to establish and enforce creedal statements for local churches or for missionaries.
The Church endorses the Baptist Faith and Message of 1963 as a non-creedal confession of faith in our religious and denominational life.
The Church voluntarily supports and enters into partnership associations with:
- The Bridge Network of Churches locally,
- The Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Virginia (CBFV) at the state level, and,
- The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF) and Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) at the national level.
The Church gives cooperatively to the CBF, SBC and others providing each of its members the option of designating contributions and directing mission dollars solely to the Church or to the BGAV and SBC or BGAV and CBF or otherwise.
