WHAT IS A BAPTIST?
A Christian tradition emphasizing the Lordship of Jesus Christ, believers’ baptism, the competency of all believers to be in direct relationship with God and to interpret Scripture, the importance of the local church, the assurance of freedom in worship and opinion, and the need to be Christ’s witnesses within society.

We are the ministry of the American Baptist Churches U.S.A's Great Rivers Region and Area 1 Churches. To put another way, we are past NIU alumni and ABCUSA church's ministry to the NIU community.
