Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to dress up at Bible Baptist Church?
Our church family comes from a wide variety of backgrounds. Therefore, some dress up and some attend in jeans and t-shirts. Our approach is that we are much more concerned about the fact that you are here, than what you have chosen to wear. Simply put, wear what you have.
 
  • What about my kids?
We love families! We offer childcare during all worship services from birth through age 3. During early and late worship services, dischipleship hour and Wednesday evening services, there are classes and small groups available for Pre-K through 12th grades.  An outstanding team of adult leaders will be ready to greet you and guide you to where you need to be. 
 
  • What is a worship service like?
Our services are designed to be powerful and meaningful. You will find a mix of hymns and light contemporary music styles and other creative elements, including relevant messages that will encourage, challenge, and strengthen you in your spiritual journey. 

What We Believe

 

Bible Baptist Church West Union is an Independent Baptist church. We affirm the fact that there are other devoted Christians who exist in other denominations. However as Baptists, there are certain distinct practices of the faith which we hold dear. Many of these are the same practices that distinguish us from other denominations.

  • The Bible is the Word of God
We believe that the Bible was written by men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is literally God-breathed and contains no mixture of error and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man.. The truth of Scripture and the person of Christ are the foundations of the church and the life of the believer (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
 
  • Salvation is by Grace Alone
We believe that we are saved by God's grace when we put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We believe in the free will of every person to choose Jesus Christ as Savior for themselves.  Man is sinful and does not have the ability to save himself, no matter how many good works he does. However, once we place our faith and trust in Christ, our faith will be evidenced by good works, obedience, and the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 5:22-23).
 
  • The Believer is Eternally Secure
We believe that if a person has made a true, heart-changing decision to accept Christ, they can never lose their salvation (John 10:27-28; Romans 8:38-39). When a believer sins, their fellowship with God is interrupted, but never broken (1 John 1:9). However, the Bible is clear that those who do not place their faith and trust in Christ in this lifetime will spend eternity in a Christless hell (Revelation 21:8).
 
  • Every Believer has Access to God
We believe that every believer, both young and old, has direct access to God through Jesus Christ. This is sometimes referred to as the Priesthood of the Believer. Because of Christ's work on the cross, the believer has no need for human intermediates, but can talk to God personally, as one of His children (1 John 2:1; Hebrews 4:14-16).
 
  • Baptism is by Immersion for the Believer
We believe that baptism does not save anyone, but is a believer's symbolic identification with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. It is done by immersion as an act of obedience by those who have put their faith and trust in Christ (Matthew 28:19-20; Romans 6:3-5).
