What We Believe

Everyone, and we mean everyone, is welcome at Cambridge Drive Community Church.

Our commitment to soul liberty means that each individual is responsible for their 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
