Our Mission

Our Mission is to strike a balance in these five areas: to reach our community and the world with the Gospel (evangelism); to train our members to walk with Jesus and be bold in their faith (discipleship); to regularly join together for mutual support and encouragement (fellowship); to strive to meet the physical, emotional,and spiritual needs of those in distress (ministry); and to display our commitment to our Lord in public and in private (worship).

What We Believe

At Concord Baptist Church we have a heart for reaching out to the community in an effort to show them the love of Jesus Christ. We believe that “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16. In Matthew 28:19-20 it says: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” This is a commandment that should not be taken lightly and should be at the heart of every born again christian.
