What to Know About Us
Green Run Baptist Church is a community of Christians who are sinners that are saved by faith alone in Jesus Christ. We believe that "Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). In response to Christ's great love for us, and His atonement for our sins, we are empowered by the indwelling Spirit to live dedicated to God's word and to bringing the gospel of Christ to those who yet do not believe.
The Lord has blessed our church with a wide-range of ministries. We have weekly Sunday school classes for all ages including a new membership class for those interested in becoming members. During our service, we sing Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, we preach expository sermons, have a time for corporate prayer, and take weekly communion. Our discipleship ministry continues with Sunday evening connection groups and weekly small groups that meet in member's homes.
Before you visit us, we want you to know that we are Reformed and Baptist.
To be “Reformed” means that we hold to the teachings of Scripture, which were recovered during the Protestant Reformation by men such as Martin Luther and John Calvin, among many others. The heart of the Reformation was to look at Scripture alone, for faith alone, in Christ alone, to the glory of God alone. Our church holds to the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith, which is one of the Reformed confessions.
To be a “Baptist” church means we believe the Bible teaches that only baptized believers have the privilege of joining a local church. Since we are baptists, we only baptize those who give a credible profession of faith (Matthew 28:19).
Our purpose at Green Run is to worship the Lord Jesus Christ, edify the saints in Him, preach the gospel, and live holy lives for God’s glory in this world.
