Our Purpose

 
Big Darby Baptist Church exists as a body of believers in Jesus Christ, called to share life together in order to evangelize our community and the world. Using the Bible as our authority, we seek to teach, equip, and encourage each other to mature in our faith and worship, and thus honor our God.  

Worship


 
We meet regularly to express our worship of God using music, prayer, and Bible preaching. 

Teaching

 
We have study classes, seminars, mentoring, counseling, and retreats to help anyone seeking God. We believe Christians are disciples who are learning and changing to be more like Jesus. 

Fellowship


 
Fellowship is a part of how we care for one another. We believe that the support of a network of persons of faith is vital for everyone in our congregation.

Our Symbol and Motto

   

Symbol
 Where the thirsty can find refreshment

 

Our symbol and theme arise out of our name being connected with the Big Darby Creek which flows nearby the church, (a place where we sometimes do our baptisms). Jesus is the Living Water who gives us life and refreshes our souls. As we immerse our lives in Him, we find the needs of our lives being met.

 

 

Our Distinctive Baptist Beliefs

 
We share with other evangelical denominations a belief in the great doctrines of the Church: the triune God, salvation through Jesus Christ, the Bible as God’s written revelation of Himself to us, and believer’s baptism by immersion. Each congregation of Baptists is self-governing. We believe the most important decision a person is ever called upon to make concerns their acceptance of God’s plan of salvation provided through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We believe the Bible has God’s help for an individual’s personal problems in this life, especially those concerning his/her relationship to God and other people. Our Church is a self-governing congregation but for more effective ministry and mission, we cooperate and fellowship with the following:
