The Minneapolis Church

The Minneapolis Church is a Historic, Independent, Unincorporated, Non-501c3, KJV-only, Sovereign Grace Baptist Church which meets in the Brooklyn Park area of northern Minneapolis, Minnesota. We believe in the divine inspiration and preservation of the Bible in the King James Version (Authorized Version of 1611), which is the only basis of our faith and practice. We believe in the sovereign electing grace of God which alone saves sinners eternally. We believe that once a person believes the gospel and repents of their sins, they ought to be baptized by immersion in water which adds them to the local church. We believe the local church is set up by God for the edifying and improvement of the faith of God's children and is where they should worship Him in spirit and in truth, and fellowship with Christians of like faith.
