Our Beliefs

We are a Southern Baptist Church affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. We adhere to the doctrinal statement as published in the Baptist Faith and Message (2000). The following is a partial summary of our core beliefs.

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.
There is one and only one living and true God. …The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. …God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. …He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross, He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. …He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. …He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.

Man is the special creation of God, in His own image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. …By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. … The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore every person of every race possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Each congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ through democratic processes. In such a congregation each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Its scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. …It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.

The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members … memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. …Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly…the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell. …The righteous… will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.
God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood or adoption.

Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. … The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God’s image. A husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church. He has the God-given responsibility to provide for, to protect, and to lead his family. A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ. She, being in the image of God as is her husband and thus equal to him, has the God-given responsibility to respect her husband and to serve as his helper in managing the household and nurturing the next generation… Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord. Parents are to demonstrate to their children God’s pattern for marriage.

Loving God. Loving People.

Our Staff

Rob and Kristin

Senior Pastor

Pastor Rob is very fortunate to have been born into a home where God’s word was not only taught, but lived. With a sincere and childlike faith, Rob accepted Christ at the age of six. Coming to Christ at such an early age does not mean a life free of rebellion, however, Rob’s struggles have not revolved around a decision to accept Christ as savior, but instead were found in making Jesus Lord. At the age of 26, Rob listened to and surrendered to God’s call into ministry. While serving as a youth pastor in Oklahoma, Rob also received a Master’s in Christian Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2003 (and later a certification in Biblical Counseling). In November of 2006, Rob was called to First Baptist Church, Anderson, Missouri as their Senior Pastor. The Psalmists said, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Rob really believes that in calling him into the pastorate, God has given him the desire of his heart! With a great love for the church and the Word of God, Rob has had his calling into the pastorate confirmed time and time again.

Married to Kristin in 1993, Rob and Kristin have been blessed with two wonderful kids, Lindsey & Cayle. Kristin also has a ministry of her own, using a love for music and cooking, she is pleased to share her gifts in the service of her Lord.

In January of 2014, the Walkers were called to New Hope, and together, they are looking forward to serving God in Creswell…. Eugene….. the United States… and even the “ends of the Earth”!

Danny was born in Earth, Texas on August 4, 1935. With the help of his uncle, he was enrolled in San Marcos Baptist Academy, a Baptist military boarding school, in San Marcos, Texas from 1950 to 1955. After he graduated, he served in the U.S Navy from 1955-1959.

After the U.S. Navy, Danny began working in construction as a scaffold setter. At that time, he began attending First Southern Baptist Church of North Hollywood, CA. It was there, when he asked Jesus to forgive his sins and come into his heart. Soon after, God called him into full-time Christian service in 1962.

Danny enrolled in California Baptist College, Riverside, California in 1963 where he began preaching weekend revivals all over Southern California, and finished with a BA in religious studies in 1967. On August 5, 1967 Danny married Trudy Hutsell.

Danny and Trudy moved to Fort Worth, Texas where Danny enrolled in Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. While enrolled, Danny pastured at Eastman Baptist Church in Overbrook, OK. He ended up graduating with a Master of Divinity degree in 1971.

Kasey and Kelly

Youth Pastor

Kasey was born and raised in Kingsport, TN where he grew up as a preacher’s kid in a Southern Baptist Church. Kasey put his faith in Jesus at a young age, and in High-school he knew that God was calling him into the ministry.

In 2004, Kasey began his college education a Moody Bible Institute in Spokane, WA. He received his Bachelors degree in Missionary Aviation Technology, but he felt that God was calling him away from missionary aviation and into student ministry. Kasey served as the associate pastor of Happy Home Community Church in Deer Park, WA after graduating college, and in January of 2016 he came on staff as the Minister of Youth and Worship at New Hope Baptist Church.

Kasey is married to his wife Kelly, and together they have a son, William. Kelly enjoys ministering to the students with Kasey and playing the keyboard for worship.
