One may ask, 'What makes churches different?" This answer can be found in many different ways, Some differences are found in Bible Doctrine, while others may be found simply in the atmosphere of the church. Ultimately, when we are looking for a church we must desire a church which will meet our spiritual needs. As you consider attending Secord Bible Baptist, we would like to leave you with some information which will help you to make this very important decision.
At Secord Bible Baptist Church, we endeavor to meet three specific needs. It is our sincere desire to: Exalt the Lord Jesus Christ, Encourage the believer through the preaching of the word of God, and to Evangelize the lost in our area and abroad. We believe this three-fold goal will allow our church to better serve our Saviour in these latter days. Let’s take just a minute to lay out these three points and show you the reason why we feel they are so important.
Exalting the Lord Jesus Christ is the goal of Secord Bible Baptist Church. The Scripture says, "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." We will endeavor to exalt our Lord through the singing of the sacred hyns, the preaching of the King James Bible, and by our sincere service to Him daily.
Encouraging believers as a local church is essential. It is of utmost significance that Christians find proper encouragement in the world in which we live. We believe that this encouragement begins in the pulpit and is then carried out through the individuals in the church. In II Timothy 4:2, the Scripture says, "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season: reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine." The Scripture teaches that we must be encouraged to do right. According to the Bible, God chose preaching as the tool to show believers how to live in this present world. Prayer meeting is another ministry which is intended to encourage the fellow believer. Wednesday Prayer meeting allows us to gather and spend time before God seeking His help for the needs of those in the congregation.
Evangelizing the lost is a great burden to our church. Jesus told us to "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." We take this very seriously. Whether it is by passing out tracts or through visitation, evangelism is important to fulfilling the Great Commission given by our Lord Jesus Christ. The following are just a few ways we attempt to reach the lost for the Lord Jesus Christ:
- Door to door tract distribution
- Jail Ministry
- Nursing home ministry
- Bus ministry
- Summer street preaching
- Bible distribution
- Missions program
- Tract Ministry
We believe if we do not take these steps to reach the lost, many countless souls will be lost for all eternity. The scriptures teach that we need to know where we are going when we die; therefore, we strive to tell others of God’s great gift. It is very important that a person understands their need to accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
Thank you for taking time to read this invitation. It is our prayer that we may be able to minister to your spiritual needs. If you have any questions or would like more information about Secord Bible Baptist Church, please feel free to contact us.
