about HABC

Hmong American Baptist Church was incorporated on August 28, 1996 and adopted its Constitution and By-laws on December 1, 1996.

We are a group of Hmong Americans dedicated to the biblical learning and teaching of the Christian Faith. Our fellowship is to help provide a vehicle for the Hmong speaking community to have a means of hearing and understanding the Living Word in their native language. It is also to help preserve the culture through a life-long relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


Statement of Faith

The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the Basis for any statement of faith. The church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of the Baptist Faith and Messages as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963. We band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind. The ordinance of the church is baptism and the Lord’s Supper.


Purpose

The purpose of this church shall be to carry out the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ as recorded in Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15 and in Acts 1:8 to develop Christian fellowship among its saints and to promote their growth in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.
