As Baptists, we practice believers' baptism which emphasizes spiritual rebirth and individual response to Christ's invitation. Baptists are also marked by understanding and living the Bible as God's message to us.
As with congregations of all traditions we are founded on a life-giving, love-directed faith in God through Jesus Christ, connected with each other by the Holy Spirit, in forgiveness, purpose and hope.
WHAT WE DO
Our basics: Weekly Worship and Bible study / discussion (Sunday mornings), with monthly fellowship times (Men's Breakfast and for everyone after worship) and reaching out to our community with music and word through our Coffee House. We also cooperate with the local school at Christmas to provide for some families in need, and support several mission efforts, especially in our county and state.
HBC was founded in 1798, rooted in our community of Hamburg's earliest days and seeing the good of our town as part of our mission. We strive to support our community through charity, ministry and fellowship.
American Baptist Churches
American Baptists are continuing to use our hands and feet to serve Christ. Through the cross of Christ we embrace the world as neighbor. Our vision for mission energizes a multitude of servant ministries of evangelism, discipleship, leadership, new church development, social justice, healing, peacemaking, economic development and education. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we work together in mutual submission, humility, love, and giving that the gospel might be preached and lived in all the world.
