We believe that baptism should have a place of importance in the lives of all believers. We believe that baptism is an outward expression of a regenerate spirit. Baptisms at BBC are conducted by way of immersion and are held throughout the year. We communicate dates and times via the bulletin.
In the Bible, Jesus exhorts all believers to partake of communion as an important reminder of His redemptive work on the Cross. We normally observe communion once a quarter on Sunday morning.
We believe that counseling plays an important part in molding a person into the body of Christ. The type of counseling provided by the pastoral staff at BBC is biblical counseling based on God’s Word alone. The pastors are not professional psychiatrists or professional psychologists. We believe that, “All Scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Contact Pastor Stephen for an appointment or more information.
The facility is available free of charge to people who consider themselves members of BBC. If you would like Pastor Stephen to perform the funeral service or memorial service please contact Pastor Stephen at (859) 339-1199)
“So let each give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 4:7) During our Sunday morning services we pass an offering plate to provide our members the opportunity to give their tithes and offerings. We ask our visitors to simply fill out the visitor card they received when arriving and place it in the offering plate.
Weddings performed by Pastor Stephen require a minimum of five weeks of premarital counseling. To make arrangements contact Pastor Stephen.
While we maintain that the Holy Scripture is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice, Bethel Baptist Church affirms the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 as a summary of what the Bible teaches concerning the major doctrines of the Christian faith. http://www.sbc.net/bfm2000/bfm2000.asp
