What Every Christian Should Know About Salvation w/ Rob Phillips

What does it mean to be saved? And how does God’s work of redemption span time and eternity to provide a remedy for sin, which has ruined everything and alienated everyone from Him?  What Every Christian Should Know About Salvation explores twelve Bible terms that describe God’s gracious work of rescuing us from sin, returning us to a right relationship with with Him, and ultimately restoring us — and the fallen world in which we live — to the perfection Adam and Eve experienced before the Fall.  Rob Phillips is a Christian apologetics instructor with more than 25 years of experience in preaching, teaching, and training Christians to “earnestly contend for the faith … once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 3).  He serves as strategic leader of Ministry Support and Apologetics for the Missouri Baptist Convention.

Parent-Child Dedication

PCD Class.001.jpeg

Children are a gift from God (Psalm 127:3) and parents are called to the task of impressing His commands on their hearts (Deut. 6:6-7). This involves purposefully leading our children and Parent-Child Dedication signifies an ongoing commitment to this task. It also signifies a commitment of our church body to provide a loving, Biblical community that supports and prays for our families.

Parent Child Dedication is not the same as infant baptism. We believe baptism is a public statement of faith that can only be made by someone who has personally believed in Christ and infants are unable to make a decision to believe in Jesus.

Parent-Child Dedication is, however, an opportunity for parents to determine what matters most in their children’s lives and to consider, at the beginning of the parenting journey, how they can reflect those values as they lead their children.

If you have trusted in Christ as your Savior, you’re invited to participate in this service. While parents most often dedicate their children while they are young, they may be dedicated at any age.

Evangelism One-Day Workshop

Evangelism One-Day Workshop

In Matthew 28:18-20 we read: And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

That’s what this workshop is all about. We want to equip you, encourage you and exhort you to be disciple-makers.

This training will take place from 8:30 a.m. until noon and will teach you how your unique testimony plays a major role in the way you share the gospel through relationships in your family, neighborhood, workplace, and world.

The Bible teaches over and over again that the responsibility to share the gospel is that of every Christian. But many of us never share this good news due to a number of factors. We have a million excuses: fear, awkwardness and a lack of opportunity are cited by many.

We want to use Scripture to overcome these fears, and equip one another to share the gospel in a way that glorifies God as we share His truth with love and boldness in all aspects of our lives.


8:30-9:30 - Session 1 (Evangelism & God’s Purpose in History)

9:40-10:30 - Session 2 (God’s Sovereignty and Man’s Responsibility in Evangelism)

10:40-11:10 - Session 3 (The Truth That Saves: Defining the Gospel)

11:15-Noon - Session 4 (The Gospel & Your Testimony)
