As a Baptist church, we are congregationalist in polity or operating structure, meaning we believe a congregation should be autonomous, independent, or ecclesiastically sovereign. However, we recognize there are benefits to partnering with other like-minded churches and organizations. Below are some organizations with whom we are connected.
Ohio Association of Regular Baptists (OARB)
OARB is a group of independent Baptist churches in Ohio who voluntarily associate with each other for fellowship and with the vision of “Spreading the Gospel in Ohio through Healthy Churches.” To find out more about OARB click here

The GARBC, established in 1932 is an Independent Baptist Christian denomination in the United States and Canada, retaining the name “Regular Baptist”. Their home office is located in Arlington Heights, Illinois. To find out more about GARBC click here.
Cedarville University is a private Baptist university in Cedarville, Ohio. It is chartered by the state of Ohio, approved by the Ohio Board of Regents, and accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
Established in 1887, the school was originally affiliated with the conservative Reformed Presbyterian Church in North America, General Synod, now known as the Presbyterian Church in America. Ownership of the College transferred in 1953, and Cedarville became a Baptist college of arts and sciences. Since 2003, Cedarville has been affiliated with the State Convention of Baptists in Ohio (Southern Baptist Convention). They have had a long-standing association with the GARBC as well.
Quite a few of our members are Cedarville University alumni or parents of alumni. To find out more about Cedarville University click here.
