"unto him be glory"

Ephesians 3:21

Welcome

Joshua Baptist Church is an assembly of faith, united by a love for God and a compassion for people. We endeavor to rightly divide the Scriptures and to be firmly established upon the truth of God’s Word. Through sacrifice and resolve, we seek to be used for the purpose of spreading the gospel message of Jesus Christ unto the uttermost part of the earth. We emphasize the need for personal growth, having a clear and effective witness, and faithful stewardship of God’s resources. We maintain that God has established the home and that in conjunction with His church, the people of God are to lead the next generation to walk in the ways of the Lord. With faith we anticipate the power of God’s Holy Spirit to embolden and empower us to serve that we may bring glory to God!

God’s Plan of Salvation:
Admit that you are a sinner.
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Believe that Christ died on the cross for you.
Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Confess your sins and ask Him to save you.
Romans 10:9-10 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with The mouth confession is made unto salvation."

An example prayer:
“Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner and I need to be saved. I know that Jesus died on the cross to pay for my sins. Please come into my heart and save me so that when I die I may spend eternity with you in Heaven. Amen.”

OUTREACH

Every Saturday at 10:00am we have a team that meets in the choir room and then goes into our community, inviting souls to Jesus and also to join our services. Everyone is welcome to join in this endeavor to reach our "Jerusalem" for the cause of Christ.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you are planning to visit, here are some things to expect: 

What would be my next step to connect?

When you start attending JBC, fill out a connect card and our leaders will follow up to get to know you and help you get plugged in. 

What time do services start?

Our Morning Service starts at 11:00 am every Sunday! We do have Sunday School at 10:00 am if you would like to be a part of some small Bible classes before the 11:00 am worship service.

Our Evening Service begins at 6:30 pm every Sunday and we have a Wednesday Service at 7:00 pm for some mid-week worship!

What happens in a service?

The service lasts about an hour and twenty minutes. Someone will typically open the service with prayer, and a the congregation will sing a few traditional hymns.  Between the songs, someone will make a couple short announcements. There will be a time of offering where our instrumentalists will play and pass an offering plate around. A special song sung as a solo or a group will be performed right before the preacher gets up to share a sermon.  At the end, the service concludes with an altar call and a time of prayer.

Is there something special for my kids?

We offer Children's Church for children age five through 6th grade, as well as Nursery (infants, crawlers, walkers—newborn through age 4) during each of our Bible Classes and Worship Services.  All children’s ministry staff have gone through a background check and safety training. We have gone to great lengths to promote the spiritual growth and physical safety of our children! This  will allow you to have peace of mind during our services. And, our Bible-centered children’s programs are so fun and engaging, your kids will beg to come back! 

What do I wear?

You will see most men  wear suits and ties, and most women wear dresses and skirts; however we do not have an enforced dress code. You are welcome to join us wearing whatever is your best!

What "size" of a church is JBC?

At JBC, we typically have about 300 people on campus on a Sunday morning. Our pastors have made the statement we are a big church with a small church feel! 

Will I be asked to give money?

We do take an offering in each service. Our offerings help us to continue our ministry and reach our community with the gospel. There is also an option to give online or by phone; if you are a guest or visitor, don’t feel obligated to give.
