Basic Truth Church was started in November, 2008.  It was inspired by a spiritual restlessness of its founders, Jim Baney, Jim Trimble, and Chris Baney, as well as the dedicated work, support, encouragement and urging of many others.  The premise of our church is to provide a place where people who already know the Lord or those who are searching can come and find a very welcoming and relaxed worship experience.  Basic Truth might provide a new or first time church experience for some or serve as an alternative for others who are disillusioned with their past or current church experience.

Our core beliefs at Basic Truth are built on the foundations and basics of the Holy Bible.  Basic Truth does not recognize any of the popular man-made doctrines, but relies solely on the bible as the inspired word of God, which serves as the guiding principles for the church.  This is typified in our church name "BASIC TRUTH", which demonstates our desire to get Back to the Basics by focusing on the truth as found in God's Holy Bible.  


In fact, one of our core scriptures is found in Matthew 22:34-40:


The Greatest Commandment


34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together.35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question:

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”


Jesus summed up 613 commands in just two...

All the law and the prophets hang on these two commands to LOVE.
