WHO We Are

Mission

A church's mission is what it is called by God to do.  We believe that God gives the church a clear mission in Matthew 28:18-20

"And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.  And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."


Vision

Bible Baptist Church is a gospel centered community living for the global renown of God and the renewal of our city.

What We Value

We truly believe and are dedicated to the following core values:

  • Gospel Saturated - We believe the Gospel must be central in everything.  We should constantly reflect on it and base our lives and ministries around it.  We believe that the hope of Shiremanstown and the nations is the Gospel, and we desire to be a blessing to the city and to the nations by our actions and our words. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
  • Anchored in Prayer -  Prayer is the way in which we talk to God.  It is honest, authentic communication with the God of this universe.  Our prayer life is an indicator of our dependence on God.  It is also a reflection of the intimate relationship between the Creator and his created people. (1 John 5:14-15)
  • Wholehearted in Worship - We value gathering together for God-centered, Bible-based, Gospel-declaring, Church-building worship. (Colossians 3:16-17)
  • Biblically Based - We believe Scripture should be the foundation for our lives as believers. This plays out through Bible-based teaching during our services; however, it is also important that, as believers, we study the Word individually and apply it to our lives daily. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  • Courageously Generous - All we have was given to us by God and should be used to honor and give back to him. We must look for ways to strategically give our money and possessions away. (Matthew 13:44)
  • Ministry Focused - When we serve, we allow God to work through us and impact others as well as change ourselves. We look to Jesus as our example of serving, as he served us by freely giving his life. (Ephesians 2:8-10)

Our Focus

We as people will spend most of our time on the things that are most important to us.  We at Bible Baptist Church would like to focus our time on the following 3 aspects of ministry because we believe them to be very important to God.

Relationally Connected - God does not want us to do life alone, but instead, to have authentic relationships with others in which we share both our struggles and joys. Being a part of a community provides both accountability and encouragement. Although living in community can at times be difficult, risky, and painful, it produces life change and growth. (Acts 2:42)


Transformational Living - We are constantly challenging one another to become more like Christ. The pursuit of God is a life-long process, which we strive for through practicing spiritual discipline, living in community, creatively teaching the Bible, and encouraging one another along the way. (Colossians 1:28-29)


Missionally Involved -   We have been rescued and redeemed by a loving missionary God, therefore we seek to join His mission by making disciples and loving our neighbors (Matthew 9:9-13)
