Q&A

 

What are your service times?

On a weekly basis, our church meets for Sunday services and again on Wednesday night for Bible study. In addition to these services, there are other opportunities that are occasionally on the church calendar. Revival meetings, church fellowships, outreach events, and youth programs all provide special times where the church family meets together. Please click here for service times and here for upcoming events.

 

Where is your church located?

Our church property is located on the corner of Shields Avenue and Palm Avenue. Our main auditorium and nursery building are located one block west of Palm on Harrison, and the our Academy and Sunday School classes are located on the southwest corner of Palm and Shields.

What can I expect my first visit?

From the moment you step on our property, you will see our church family. There will always be someone around to answer questions or give directions. After your children find their classes, you will find your place, and then, you can simply relax and enjoy the service! Please check out the Your First Visit link for more information.


Are classes offered for my children?

The children’s ministry of our church has always been a priority. From the nursery to the Junior Church, you will find caring and qualified teachers who will work to create a safe and fun environment for your children. On both Sunday morning and Wednesday night there are classes for the children, and nursery services are provided for every service. Our youth group is an important part of our church. The teens meet for a class on Sunday morning, and again on Wednesday nights for a time of food, fellowship, and fun! Our Church Ministries page will give you additional information about the ministries of our church.

 

What does it mean to be a Baptist?

We are a Baptist church by conviction and principle, not by affiliation. This means that we believe the basic Bible teachings for which Baptists have historically stood. As Baptists, we believe the following: the Bible is our sole authority for all matters of faith and practice. The church should be autonomous or self-governing. The believer does not need a priest, other than Jesus Christ, to come boldly to God. Every Christian has equal access to God personally. God's Word gives us two ordinances for the church-baptism and the Lord's Table. Each person is individually responsible for his decision to accept Christ. The separation of church and state is biblical. The believer is eternally secure and cannot lose salvation. There are two biblical offices in the church - pastors and deacons. A detailed list of our doctrinal position can be found here, and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask any of our pastoral staff.
