OUR MISSION

  • Exalt the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in worship and fellowship,
  • Learn and follow God’s Word
  • Share the Gospel with neighbors near and far.

Jesus has designed us to be and calls on us to be”salt” and “light” to the world.  Matthew 5:13-16.  It is only by obedience to Christ and focusing our daily living on Him through the Holy Spirit who resides in us that we will be able to be as He expects us to be in the world we live in and interact in every day. We offer organized worship services on Sunday, Sunday School classes for all ages, a youth ministry, as well as small group studies through the week.  A small group study will enable you to get to know those you worship with better and will enable you to ask those questions you have always wanted to ask.  No matter what program the church has that you are interested in, you can be assured you will be encouraged by others who face the same or similar life challenges you just might be facing now.

There are lots of answers to lots of problems out in the world we live in.  But the only true lasting answer is in living a life dedicated to our Savior and the Truth that comes from his Holy Word!

We are glad that you found our website, hope that it helps you get to know us even better.

  •  We are believers in Jesus Christ, our Creator, Savior and Lord!
  • Our goal is to be as Jesus taught us, to be Salt and Light in the world. 
  • We have a hope in Jesus Christ that we want to share with you. 
  • We are a caring church and we enjoy fellowship with each other and others as our name suggests.
  • Please come and worship with us.

For more information about The Baptist Fellowship of Randolph, please explore our website.  You will find a calendar that spells out church events.  This site is new as of June, 2013 and was done in preparation for the celebration of our 35th anniversary as a constituted church.  Our first major project in the website was to get our historical timeline onto it.  That has been done, so please take the time to click on the various points in time and see narrative that will tell you more about us and where we came from and in come cases where we are going.  The timeline was not meant to include all church historical events that occur throughout the year because if it did it would become so filled that it would be hard to manage and would lose its effectiveness in telling new viewers what our big picture history is.   Review of past records and decisions to put them in the timeline will be ongoing also, so don’t think that because something does not appear in the timeline that it was determined that it was not significant.  As these important facts are found they will be incorporated in the timeline so if you know things that belong please let us know.  In the short time frame that was involved in getting this timeline launched there is no doubt that significant matters have been missed.  Also what is “significant” is subjective so please do not be bothered if you see timeline posts that you feel should not be there or know of things that you think should be there.  Now that the site and the timeline has been launched, most of the new items involving church activities will be included in the Calendar and in Fellowship News and not the timeline. As of August 2013 the site has added Sunday morning sermon podcasts.  You can also see the bulletins for past and upcoming services.  There is a contact page.  There is a calendar of events page.  If you review the side-bar menu you will see many other areas of the website that you might like to explore.  In addition in our links section you will find resources that will help you in your Christian exploration and growth.  May God bless your use of this modern tool as we worship Him, the Creator of all!

Dear Church Family and Friends,

There are all kinds of father-child relationships represented in our church and in our community.  Some children consider their father to be their biological father.  Some children consider their father to be their adoptive father.  Some children consider their father to be their step-father.  Some children consider their father to be a man who was an important role model in their lives, even though he is not biologically or legally related to the children.

These men are important to us for various reasons.  They were often there when we needed them.  They have helped us master skills as we have grown up.  Such men are priceless to us.

However, I know that some of you have had fathers who were not good or honorable.  You have made it to this point in spite of your father’s influence.  There is a fantastic father-figure for you – a heavenly Father.  When we think in terms of our heavenly Father, we find a truly great Father-figure.  He is always with us.  He has loved us before we loved Him.  He has adopted us into His family.

Adoption is such a picture of a father’s love.  “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.  For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, ‘Abba! Father!’” (Romans 8:14-15).  God has adopted every person who has called out to receive His Son as Lord and Savior.

The adoption process can be a difficult time that can challenge and stretch a person’s faith in God. For example, Gina and I faced many trials in the adoption of our children.  In fact, we were told on the first night that we arrived in Kiev, Ukraine that it would be impossible to adopt two children.  Our adoption by God was no less dramatic.  Before we knew about the grace of God, it looked impossible for us to become the adopted children of God.  “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us,” (Romans 5:8).

In today’s sermon, we will examine the spiritual adoption process and admire the love that our heavenly Father and His Son display to us.  May God bless you.

Pastor George

Dear Church Family and Friends, We have been commissioned by Jesus Christ to make disciples.  Here are some tips on how we can effectively make disciples: Principle #1:  When God tells or shows you an opportunity to share the gospel, do it.  Remember that Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth.  He gives [Read more…]
