God’s People United Through Love

We are Shoal Creek Baptist Church. The Church is more than the building. The Church is the people. We don’t “do” church… we “are” the church. We are a people of great diversity who have found our unity in Jesus, the Christ, who is the Lord and Head of the Church. We are part of the larger body of believers worldwide that is called “The Church.” We are proud of our Christian heritage, yet never staying rooted in the past. We are always looking toward a better and brighter future as God’s people.
Our goal is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. The Great Commission of our Lord Jesus, found in Matthew Chapter 28, verses 16-20, is our calling and our mission to each other and to the world. We take this command very seriously. We believe that disciple is more than a believer. A disciple of Christ seeks to imitate Christ in all aspects of life: family, job, school, society. Therefore, everything that we do has as a goal “the making of disciples,” because we want a difference for God in the world

At Shoal Creek Baptist Church, the goal of making disciples is reached through the simple practices of

1) Loving God

2) Loving each other and

3) Loving the world.

Being Church ought to be simple. What can be more basic than love? We practice “loving God” through God-centered worship that connects us to God. We practice “loving each other” through Sunday School, small groups, and fellowship opportunities, always helping each other to grow spiritually. We practice “loving the world” through our Sunday School and small groups by reaching out to the community as an extension of God’s love and grace.
