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 man believes the gospel and repents of his sins, he ought to be baptized by immersion in water which adds him to the local church. We believe that the local church was instituted 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.
