A church is its confession and its members
We are a Southern Baptist church that aligns with the historic Reformed confessions. We planted in 2017 with a mission to declare and display gospel hope in the city of Annapolis and beyond.
We exist to declare and display gospel hope in Annapolis and beyond. This requires three ambitions:
We never graduate from the gospel; the gospel saves us from our sin and sustains us in our sojourning.
The church is a family, and family is where you belong. We are committed to cultivating a community of brothers and sisters who share one heavenly Father.
We leverage every opportunity in our spheres of influence to declare and display the gospel.
Christian growth comes through commitment and encouragement. To become a member of a church is to commit to its doctrine, its discipleship, and ultimately its people.
