The Message We Preach

II Timothy 4:2

On any given Sunday in Bloomington, we have several visitors in our services. We have others who have attended before, but are not members of our local church. So it is important that we let them know that our church is different from other churches in our area in many different ways. · We are different because of our understanding of the purpose of the church. That it isn't a social club or a political organization here to reform the world, but it is to be a lighthouse pointing men, women, boys and girls to Calvary and the saving grace of Jesus Christ. · We are different because of our emphasis on world-wide missions, we presently support 65 missionary families and projects around the world with a total missions budget of over $47,000. To God be the glory! · We are different because of our organization. We are an independent Baptist church governed by our local congregation, not some ecclesiastical hierarchy.

We are different because of our stand on the Word of God. We believe that this old King James Version Bible doesn't just contain the Word of God, but It is the Word of God and the only rule for our faith and practice.

There are many ways that we are different, but perhaps one of the most obvious ways that we are different is because of the message we preach!

The message is imperative, it is personal, it is powerful, and it is practical. And God has chosen us to preach it. “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” (2 Tim 4:2)
