Welcome to the web
Boone's Creek Baptist Church seeks to spread the glory of God from our neighbors to the nations. We aim to accomplish this by:
Strengthening the people of God. Who are the "people of God"? Those who have repented of sin and self and have surrendered to Christ. God by His sovereign grace calls out His chosen from the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:3-4) to be His body (1 Corinthians 12), His temple (1 Corinthians 6:19-20), and His house (1 Peter 2:4-10). We submit to His inspired Word so that we may "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18) and thus submit to "the will of God, our sanctification" (1 Thessalonians 4:3).
Thus, you will see on this site opportunities not only to attend our times of corporate worship, but also our Sunday School and REACH Groups which provides the proper discipleship and fellowship (Acts 2:42-47). We must not forget our times in sharing the Lord's Supper to remember through the use of the symbols of the bread (which represents His broken body) and the cup (which represents the new covenant in His blood). We are strengthened by taking the Word in, but also by living the Word out amongst our brothers and sisters in Christ, but also by ...
Sharing the gospel of God. Whereas many churches have strayed by relegating the gospel to "good advice" ("do more, love more, give more, be better..."), the gospel is "good news," anchoring us not in our own striving but in what Christ has already accomplished! We realize that we have been made by God fearfully and wonderful (Genesis 1:26-27, Psalm 139:13-14), but desiring our own will and agenda above God's commands we have rebelled and have been separated from the presence of God. The Scriptures are clear that we deserve death (Romans 3:23, 6:23) and judgment (Hebrews 9:27). Yet, God loved us enough not to leave us in that condition, but sent His Son Jesus. He as the Son of God (and God the Son) lived out God's law perfectly, but died as a substitute to atone for our sin. John 3:36 says, "Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him." This is good news based not upon what we can do or have done--it's based upon what God has already accomplished through Christ.
Thus, you will see on this site opportunities for visitation, local, national, and international missions trips, plus other ways to be trained in not only how to know the gospel, but how to share it as well. We have found the Two Ways To Live curriculum very helpful in accomplishing these goals.
We live in the Information Age. It's amazing that now we have the entire Library of Congress right at our fingertips. One would think that all this knowledge would bring some sort of contentment and peace. Turns out people are spiritually-minded in our day than ever before because all of the technological advances over the last fifty years are not bringing the lasting peace they thought it would.
With our presence on the World Wide Web, we are not wanting to add to the clutter that's already on the Internet. On the contrary, we hope that this site will be a sort of "Heavenly Haven" that you may come to again and again to see what God is up to at Boone's Creek Baptist Church --- and to see what our Jesus our Lord would have you to do.
If you would like more information about our church, please do not hesitate to contact us. We invite you to surf around and get to know us a little better. Our prayer is that the more you get to know us, the more you will get to know and love the Savior we know and love.
We aim to spread the glory of God from our neighbors to the nations. We do this by strengthening the people of God, and sharing the gospel of God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
