Welcome To Center Ridge Baptist Church

 

Our prayer is that you would be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ and that you will life a live of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty.
 
We are a community of believers focused on glorifying God in all that we do. We believe that the Bible is infallible, inerrant, and is completely sufficient. We believe the Bible is totally authoritative because it is the Word of God. We believe that God is sovereign and that he saves. God has called us to be faithful to our calling. We believe that man is born with a nature of sinfulness and therefore has a broken relationship with God. The only way to have this relationship redeemed is by believing in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ for the forgiveness of sin. Salvation happens at a moment in time, but the Bible is clear that we must grow to learn and love him more. We are called to persevere to the end. We believe that our Lord Jesus will come back again and redeem us completely. We await this coming with much anticipation.
 

Center Ridge Baptist Church is here for you. We are not just a church. We are a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you!

 

Salvation

God Loves – God created you, knows everything about you, and loves you. He loves you so much that He sent His only Son to this earth for you (John 3:16; Psalm 139).

Sin Separates – God loves you but there is a problem – your sin. Your sin separates you from God. Your thoughts, words, and actions keep you from a holy God (Romans 3:23, 6:23).

Jesus Saves – Jesus came from Heaven, lived a perfect life, died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again so that you could have a personal relationship with God. There is nothing you can do to earn God’s love and salvation, it is a free gift (Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:8-9).

We Receive – God desires to have a personal relationship with you. He has prepared the way for you by sending His Son, Jesus. You can have a personal relationship with Jesus by repenting of your sin, turning from your sinfulness, and placing your hope and trust in Jesus and what He did for you on the cross (Romans 10:9-10, 13).

Baptism

At Center Ridge we believe baptism to be the 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.

We believe baptism is an important step in the life of a believer. While baptism is not necessary for salvation in Jesus, it is crucial in the discipleship process of the believer.

Discipleship

At Center Ridge we want to help you grow in your relationship with Christ. One of the best ways for you to accomplish this is to get involved in the life of the church. A good starting point would be to give three hours per week.

  1. An hour of corporate worship.
  2. An hour of small group Bible study.
  3. An hour of serving.
