Please come and join us one Sunday morning as we would love to get to know you.


For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:16-17

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

With what shall I come before the Lord
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?
Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:6-8

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

John 10:10b

Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.

John Wesley

Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.

Elisabeth Elliot

True faith means holding nothing back. It means putting every hope in God’s fidelity to His Promises.

And it is this what is the church in the age of covid? The church is more than a building, we have been saying that from the start of covid19 isolation and public health orders and the church is more than a denomination, that is simply the expression of values and maybe some doctrinal belief.

It is an understandable question for the time we find ourselves in, right? Now each one of these groups asks the question with a different emphasis, like if talking about a person to person meeting it is about reminding each other that church is more than the building? In our leadership meetings or Baptist association meeting it might focus more on what is the church’s purpose? How do we do church? Why do we do church? Does the church need to change? We find ourselves in a time where the church has changed, it is not the
