Ainsworth Baptist is affiliated with the Genesee Baptist Association, Baptist State Convention of Michigan and the Southern Baptist Convention.
Denomination: Southern Baptist
The Southern Baptist Convention has prepared a statement of generally held convictions called The Baptist Faith and Message. It serves as a guide to understanding what we believe. Please click the link below for our basic beliefs:
- To provide a safe, healthy environment where believers gather to worship our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength
- To be a place where those that are seeking God will be given every opportunity to find Him, His will, and His ways and taught how to develop a relationship with Him and His people
- To be a place where those that are hurting can find healing, those that are grieving can find comfort, those that are lost can find the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and ALL can find hope, peace, and joy in Christ Jesus
- To be a family that for over 50 years has encouraged our members to use their God-given gifts and talents to aid, strengthen, and uplift our community
