What We Believe

 

Our commitment to soul liberty means that each individual is responsible for his or her own faith, so we do not have creeds which prescribe what a person is supposed to believe.  Instead, in our tradition, we have confessions that are consensus documents expressing what a given community affirms at a certain time.   

The following statements represent the core of our consensus at Cambridge Drive Church and the foundations upon which we

practice our faith together

 

  • We believe that in Jesus         we see and experience the fullness of God.

  • We believe that God's     defining characteristic is love.

  • We believe that God's   welcome extends to everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation      or any other walls we can build.

  • We take the Bible very seriously, but because we take the Bible seriously, we cannot settle for simplistic literal interpretations.

  • We believe that faith must express itself in outward action and make a difference in the world or it is not real faith.

  • We believe God appreciates beauty and creativity and so do we.

  • In our Baptist tradition, we believe in soul freedom, autonomy of the church, separation of church and state, and freedom of the Bible to speak for itself.

  • We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, USA
