“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” -- James 1:27
At Bible Baptist Church we believe and practice our faith outside the walls of the church building. Worship services are designed to do just that, WORSHIP. Inside the walls, our worship services and our Sunday School program are opportunities to be equipped, energized, edified and empowered to do the Lord’s work – – – outside the walls!
We live in a time when the elderly are considered burdens, but we understand that they are precious blessings. They are not to be hidden away and forgotten. That's why we put an emphasis on our nursing home ministry. Each Sunday morning, representatives from our church visit local nursing homes, encouraging the residents with preaching, singing, praying and simple caring. In addition, members of the congregation take opportunities throughout the week to visit these lonely individuals that long for nothing more than a few moments of fellowship. In the end, we have found that we are the ones who receive the blessings from our visits.
