We Are Reformed
We Are Baptist
Baptists also believe that the local church is to be governed congregationally, under the leadership of elders and deacons. The male heads of household in the church govern by vote regarding the officers and members of the church (Acts 20: 17,28, Matt 18:17-18, 1 Cor 5:4-13, 2 Cor 2:6-8). Cor 5:4-13, 2 Cor 2:6-8).
We Are Patriarchal
Patriarchy means father rule. God first made Adam, and then Eve (Gen 2:7-24). Eve was made from and for Adam (1 Cor 11:1-16, , 1 Tim 2:11-15). Men inescapably bear the mantle of headship in all of society: in family, church, business, government, and anywhere else. Men are called, everywhere they are, to lead, protect, and provide.
Wherever women are women, they are to gladly submit to this rule from worthy men and give themselves to their highest vocation, that of motherhood. Women are to bring life into this world, to nurture that life, and beautify all things (1 Cor 11:1-16, 1 Cor 14:34-35, Tit 2:3-5, 1 Tim 2:11-15).
We Are Postmillenial
Jesus has established His kingdom on this earth in His incarnation, death, resurrection, and ascension (Mark 1:15).
The age of the church is the millennium, an age in which Jesus reigns at the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19), putting His enemies under His feet (1 Corinthians 15:25). This age is one in which the Great Commission will be successful in seeing the nations converted to Jesus in repentance and faith.
We believe that the gospel, as it bears fruit in individual hearts, will transform families, cultures, and nations as they seek to serve Christ. The nations will one day flow to Jesus (Isaiah 2:2), and the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea (Hab 2:14).
