Who are we?
Bible Baptist Church consists of a wide range of different people, from all ages and different backgrounds. Whoever you are you are assured a very warm welcome at BBC. We, being born again Christians by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired Word of God, and sole authority for all Christian faith and practice.
Our purpose shall be to accomplish the will of the Lord Jesus Christ through the uniting of Christians in fellowship faithful to the Word of God, through the preaching of the whole counsel of God, for spiritual edification of saints, the winning of lost sinners to Christ, the propagation of the Gospel both at home and abroad, and the observance of the ordinances.
We believe that each local church, including our church, is a visible expression of the body of Christ and is a congregation of born again believers in Jesus Christ immersed upon a credible confession of faith, and associated together by covenant for worship, evangelism, observation of ordinances, and fellowship.
When to arrive
If it's your first visit then it's probably best to turn up around 9:50 am. For directions to reach us please see the Directions page. You'll be greeted on the door by our welcoming team who will give you some information about the church and notices of upcoming events.
What to wear
We are an informal church and accept people as they are. There is no need to dress up to try and be someone that you're not.
Our purpose in meeting together is not to bring attention to ourselves, but to bring glory and our worship together to God. You will see some people dressed up, some in business clothes, and some dressed casual.
What to expect
For some people going anywhere for the first time can be a bit of a nerve-racking experience. To help avoid any worries here's a quick summary of what you can expect at BBC. First of all, we aren't super-spiritual beings. We all had a 'first day' at church. You'll find we are a friendly bunch. If you don't understand something please simply ask. We start our worship service at 10:00 a.m. usually with notices keeping us informed of dates and singing, followed by worship in giving. We will take up a collection for the work of the church, but we do not expect our guests to contribute. Our worship time consists of singing praise choruses and traditional hymns. All ages participate in the worship time, but at about 10:30 a.m. the children (preschool through 4th grade) go to their own children's church program (there is also a nursery for the little ones). We then have a message from the Bible that is relevant and meaningful to our modern lives. We finish our meeting about 11:15 a.m. Our aim is that whether you are just looking into Christianity for the first time or have been a Christian for many years that you should be encouraged and inspired by the morning. We hope that everyone will draw closer to God.
What we believe
We are a baptist church and believe that all can have relationship with God. We believe this relationship with God is possible because of Jesus (God's only son) who invites us to follow Him. If you are interested in exploring faith then please come along on a Sunday or contact us. If you don't have a Bible, we will happily provide one (Spanish Bibles are also available). Please click here for our Statement of Faith.
Is it just Sundays?
Absolutely not! God is with us all week long and we aim to lead lives pleasing to Him. We're not perfect and we do make mistakes, but we desire to make a positive difference in everything we do. Small groups are a great way to get to know others in the church and to be real with each other about everyday living. If you are just looking into Christianity you are welcome to come along to a small group. No question is too stupid and you'll find other people also exploring God for the first time.
