One compares this world to a king's palace; children and simple folk are taken with the pictures and fine hangings, but the wise and grave statesmen do pass by them, for their business is with the king. So most men stay in the out-rooms and low things of the world, while believers pass on, and have communion with the King of kings.
Robert Dingley, Divine Opticks, 1655
Holding forth the Gospel of Jesus Christ and maintaining the doctrinal standards of the Baptist Confession of 1689.
We are Coweta Particular Baptist Church. We are located in Moreland, Georgia and are an assembly of believers committed to the historic doctrinal standards of the early English and American Baptists. We are a "confessional" assembly, in that we express our beliefs in a formal and comprehensive statement of faith, also known as a Confession. We hold unswervingly to the truth, clearly defined in Scripture itself, that "The Holy Scripture is the only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience," yet we believe that our faith can and should be systematically described, hence our commitment to a Confession of Faith.
We meet each Lord's Day for worship, expositional preaching of God's Word, and fellowship with one another. In keeping with the instruction of Scripture, it is our desire to worship our great God joyfully and reverently. We come before His presence with joyful singing (Psalm 100:1-2) but we also come humbly, recognizing that we are “frail children of dust” and that Jehovah alone is the King eternal, immortal...the only wise God (I Tim. 1:17). We seek to glorify Him and not man. Our singing is centered in the admonitions of Scripture to sing with the spirit and with the understanding (I Cor. 14:15) and to teach and admonish one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Col 3:16). Thus we sing hymns that are selected for their faithfulness to Scripture, their fullness of doctrine, and their reverence of style. Our preaching and teaching seeks to follow our Lord's pattern of reading the Scripture, explaining the Scripture, and applying the Scripture to our lives. Thus we preach expositionally, teaching through an entire book of the Bible over time.
Our pastor, Dr. John W. Suttles, and his wife, Teresa, live in Moreland and have been engaged in ministry for more than 30 years, including time spent in church planting in the Republic of Ireland.
