Koinos is a church under the lordship of Jesus Christ. We are committed “to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). We do not hold to people’s opinions but to Scripture alone. Our beliefs are historically Christian, evangelical, and Baptist. All our pastors and leaders wholeheartedly affirm our statement of faith in unity. However, someone can be a member of Koinos without affirming every doctrine in our statement of faith. Members are required to affirm the eight essential doctrines, listed below, which we believe are required for one to be a born-again Christian. Anyone who does not affirm these essential doctrines is welcome to attend and learn with us. Our full statement of faith is the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 and may be viewed here. The eight essential doctrines in our statement of faith are:
These are not merely stale, meaningless words. These words are eternal life, enabling us to know Jesus, the Savior. It is because of this that we make it our aim to teach these doctrines consistently to everyone in our church so they will become equipped for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to maturity in the full measure of the fullness of Christ. This is what we mean by CONNECT, GROW, SERVE.
We aim to help believers connect with one another in body life so that they grow to maturity in God’s Word so that they are able to serve God in every way that He gives them to serve. There’s nothing we would love more than for you to commit yourself to the Koinos body and do that with us for the glory of God.
We also affirm other historic statements of faith, such as these. This is the Baptist history and doctrinal heritage from which The Baptist Faith and Message 2000 came:
- 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith
- The Philadelphia Confession of Faith
- The New Hampshire Confession of Faith
We affirm the following statements as further expressions of our doctrinal commitments. These provide much needed clarity on important matters and demonstrate the unity we share with many Christians around the world who may belong to other denominations.
