We are glad you are here. We understand that visiting a new church for the first time can be intimidating, so we designed this portion of our website to help you feel comfortable from the first greeting. New Testament Baptist is a church that is committed to reaching people for Christ and helping them grow in their faith. The Sunday worship service is the one of the best ways to connect people to God and one another. This is accomplished by providing for you an atmosphere that is friendly, engaging, and Christ-centered. We have a burden to introduce people to God while also challenging those who have already established that relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ. We view our services as an opportunity, not only for regular attendees to grow in faith, but for all those that walk through the doors to hear about God's love for them. We hope to welcome you this Sunday! Below we have provided some answers to a few frequently asked questions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: When are the services and what are they like?
Answer: We currently offer one Sunday school class at 930 am and one main service at 10:30 am. Sunday school is where we sit in an informal setting and learn various doctrines from the Bible. Questions and interaction is welcomed. Upon arrival you will be greeted by our Pastor or another member and directed to where our service will take place. A welcome table is also in the lobby should you need more information. We encourage you to arrive early as every service begins on time and lasts a little over an hour. The service begins with a congregational song (Hymns sung to instruments) ,welcome and then a few announcements. Typically there will be special music before we open Gods word together to hear a relavent message from our pastor.
Question: Is there a dress code?
Answer: At NTBC we are always seeking to be more like Christ. While there is no dress code, we seek to dress in a way that does not draw attention to ourselves but focuses on what we have gathered to do, which is to worship Jesus Christ. Having said that, you will find people dressed in all styles from suits and dresses to jeans and sneakers.
Question: What is the music like?
Answer: Having alluded to this before, allow me to expand on it just a little. It is our belief that God is most pleased with our worship when our practice is to pursue His glory and His preferences. It is for this reason we set aside our tastes and preferences in favor for His. We do this by singing Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual songs as the Bible says to that honor Christ and teach us in song the deep spiritual truths of the Bible. Typically a piano is played and we hope to add other instruments as talented people use their gifts.
Question: Can my children come too?
Answer: Yes! Children are always welcome and we offer options at both our 9:30 am Sunday school and 10:30 am service.
We would love to have you visit soon!
