The Baptist Faith and Message 2000 is a document of core Christian beliefs by the Southern Baptist Convention that Coats Baptist Church embraces as truth derived from the Bible, God's Holy Word.

 Our Purpose Statement

Coats Baptist Church was organized for the purpose of advancing and promoting the worship of God through the reading and study of the Holy Bible as the revealed word of God, the teaching and preaching of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, conducting regular services of worship for the spiritual training, development, and benefit of each member and for the winning of souls to Jesus Christ. This church shall be missionary in spirit, extending the Gospel through our organized religious channels to the entire world.
