Gospel Light Baptist Church is an autonomous group of believers who have committed, to the Lord and to one another, faithful obedience to the Word of God. We answer to God alone and the Scriptures are our sole authority. We do not recognize any apostlic succession - the office of the apostle being fulfilled when the canon of Scripture was complete. We therefore believe in individual soul liberty, the priesthood of every believer, and that freedom of conscience and religion are God-given rather than government granted.
