We are an Independent Baptist Church – it’s about sticking close to the Bible as our true north through all of life’s twists and turns.

Our Vision

Our vision steeped in unwavering commitment to foster a vibrant, Bible-centric church. Our mission is to be a testament to the infinite grace and love of God as revealed through Jesus Christ. We strive to be a pillar of light sharing timeless Biblical truths, radiating not just within Arlington but extending our reach far and wide.

Our Purpose

The foremost aim of our church is to exalt and magnify the Lord Jesus Christ in all we do. We are convinced that the most effective way to achieve this is through:


in Spirit and Truth; it is a state of the heart and a way of living that recognizes and responds to the glory and sovereignty of God. 
(John 4:24)


the Gospel of Jesus Christ in efforts to evangelize the unconverted
(Mark 16:15)


new believers and edifying established Saints through Biblical teaching and preaching
(Matthew 28:19-20)


and establishing other independent Baptist churches locally and through giving of missions
(Acts 1:8)


our community by declaring the light of truth and providing support through benevolent service, ministering to the “least of these
(Matthew 25:45; James 2:15-16)
