Visiting a new church can be intimidating…we get it!
Our church is a simple, “what you see is what you get” kind of church. No matter if you are a local, second home owner, or just visiting, we are a church for you! We meet every Sunday at 9am and 11am. We are a congregation that encourages everyone to live as Jesus would have us live – to live a life of love!
You might have heard some negative press about Baptists. One thing you may not know is that each Baptist church is autonomous (independent) from every other Baptist church. That means that our tradition has a wide spectrum of beliefs and practices. Our running joke is that there are only five or six Baptists in our church. The reality is that our congregation is made up of people from many different denominations. We honor and respect our brothers and sisters from other traditions and we hope to create a welcoming space where everyone has a seat at the table.
In our worship services, we value eclectic music. We blend new songs with old. On any given Sunday, you’ll see a variety of instruments. And we welcome new musicians to join our team. Our pastor typically preaches through a book of the Bible focusing on practical ways to live like Jesus. Our focus is on loving God with everything we’ve got and loving our neighbor as ourselves. We try to keep things pretty simple.
You may be thinking…wait I gave up on organized religion a long time ago. Well…that’s ok too. We hope to create a space where you can Belong -> Become -> Believe. The first step is to find a space where you can belong – where you are accepted just as you are and without strings attached. Then after a while, you become more like Jesus…loving others a little bit deeper. Maybe you’ll join one of our service projects or take food to someone who has just gone through surgery. Then belief begins to bloom in your heart. We want to be a community of people who nurture that belief and give you the space to question and doubt.
Well, that said, come check us out. We promise we don’t bite! You can email our pastor anytime with any questions.
