Don't judge a book by its cover. Just because our building has been here since 1838 doesn't mean that our members have. Many of our members are newcomers to our community.
Don't jump to conclusions either because we wear the name "Baptist." Because Baptists place great emphasis upon the autonomy of the local church and the freedom of individual conscience, we are very diverse. We don't all think alike. Actually, our membership is made up of Christians from many different denominational backgrounds, not just Baptist.
