To help others experience the love of God in the way that He intended for it to be displayed and to build a family of believers in Christ that want to know the truth of the depths of God’s Word, the Bible.
These four elements are the foundational building blocks for our ministry. When we practice them alone, they can be useful to our Christian life but when we combine them together, they complete Jesus’ design for the local church. In Matthew 28:19, Jesus called believers to go into the world and make disciples of all the nations. Discipling is the process of mentoring what you know into the life of another, essentially duplicating yourself. Jesus wants Christians to live like Him and then let our lives teach others the story of Christ.
One of the number one things that we all face from time to time is discouragement. Everyone needs encouragement and it helps us to move forward even in the difficult times. Throughout the New Testament, we are commanded to comfort and encourage fellow believers because we all struggle, we all have times that we fail, and we all go through seasons of weakness. As a family, we do not push each other down. We build each other up.
In Mark 16:15, Jesus encourages His disciples to go into all the world and preach the gospel to everyone through evangelism. The same encouragement is applied to believers today. We need to be telling others about the great news of Jesus Christ. Good news is hard to keep in and great news is even harder. Jesus’ design for His church was for His followers to tell others about Him and about the love that He has for all of mankind. Jesus continues to do a tremendous work in the lives of those here at Campbell Baptist Church. He can do the same in your own life.
Prayer changes things. It really does. Prayer is simple conversation with God, but the result is so much more. Reading and studying the Bible allows us to understand what God wants from us. Prayer allows us to speak to God and acknowledge that He is there and talk to Him about what He is trying to teach us. God is the one that helps our lives to be a success as long as we allow Him to lead us down His perfect path. Knowing that we are on the right path begins with prayer.
We need to have that DEEP love for God that fills our every day. We need to have that DEEP love for our Christian brothers and sisters. We need to have that DEEP love for our community. As our love deepens for Christ, it will deepen for Others.
We believe that the 66 books that make up the Old and New Testaments as originally written are preserved as God intended them to be. We believe that the Bible is our final authority and our only and all-sufficient rule of faith and practice.
2 Timothy 3:16-17: All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, that He was crucified, died and buried, and that on the third day He rose from the grave and ascended to heaven where He sits at the right hand of God the Father. We believe that the salvation can only come through Jesus Christ.
John 3:16-17: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
We believe that all of mankind are sinners and need salvation through Jesus Christ. That Jesus is the only one who can provide salvation because of His shed blood on the cross for our sins. We believe that Jesus presents to everyone an opportunity to accept His free gift of salvation and that we not can not earn it on our own.
Romans 5:8: But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Ephesians 2:8-9: For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
