"Reaching our world with God's Word"
Community Baptist Church exists to help lead people to REACH-UP to Worship, to REACH-IN to the Word, so that together we can REACH-OUT to the World.
This area is a vertical, upward focus. It involves our HEART, our personal devotion, and our total submission. It involves being a living sacrifice, giving of ourselves and resources unto the LORD, and anything and everything that deals with our WORSHIP unto the LORD.
- To love the LORD with all our heart… praying, praising, confessing, being filled with the Spirit, speaking psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in our hearts to the LORD, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…
This area is a horizontal, inward focus. It involves our HEAD (our minds), our desire to diligently seek Him through the WORD. We receive knowledge, understanding and wisdom through our studying, meditating, and memorizing God’s WORD. We learn His will for our lives and how to apply His teachings through the WORD of God.
- Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. If we abide in His word, we are His disciples indeed… And we will know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life…
This area is a horizontal, outward focus. It involves our HANDS, our services to reach beyond ourselves and focus on others. It involves serving in the areas in which God has gifted us, whether in our churches to believers or reaching beyond to the outside unbelieving community and throughout the world.
- We minister to others as soldiers who are in submission and service to His commander. We minister to others as athletes with the attitude and ability that Christ gives us. We minister to others as farmers with the fruitfulness and faith in the ONE who gives the increase. We serve others with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.
