Auburn Christian Church is a small rural non-denominational church. We believe Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. We believe salvation comes only through Jesus Christ and our identity with Jesus Christ comes through baptism. We desire to be a beacon for the Lord, serving Jesus through encouraging our community with love, compassion, prayer, fellowship and the sharing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
