Our Distinctives

 The name "Chewelah Baptist Church" clearly reveals our beliefs and practices.

Chewelah: We take an active role in our community desiring “for all to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” It is our desire to make Chewelah a better place for all to live.

Baptist: Baptists are separatists, not protestants. The Biblical principles practiced by the early New Testament church have always been followed by a small group of believers who separated themselves from the false doctrine of Roman Catholicism and other state-run churches. Because of their stand for Biblical truth, many were persecuted and killed. Over the years, those who followed these Biblical principles were given the name “Baptist.” We choose to stand with these great believers.

Church: The word "church" means "a called out assembly.” We function as believers who are called out of this world to live Christ-centered lives.

Chewelah Baptist Church is not part of any convention, fellowship, or association. The members of Chewelah Baptist Church, as led by the Holy Spirit of God, decide how to run this local church.
