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,

Today I will be sharing with you how you can keep your SHAPE (spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality, experiences) in shape.  Your spiritual shape workout functions best when you have three kinds of relationships with people.

  1. You need someone to mentor you in the Christian faith, and in the ministry to which you are called.
  2. You need some friends with which to do ministry together, as you were shaped to do.
  3. You need someone that you can mention in the Christian faith, and in the ministry to which you are called.

Let’s examine the need for these three relationships through the life of a young pastor named Timothy (2 Timothy 2:1-13).

  1. Timothy’s mentor was the apostle Paul.  Paul wrote two letters to Timothy that were inspired by the Holy Spirit and preserved in the canon of Scripture.  From these leters, we know that Paul viewed Timothy like a son.  He exhorted him as a father speaks to a son, “You, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:1).  We need mentors in our lives to give us godly wisdom and advice.  These mentors need to be people with more experience in ministry than we have.
  2. Timothy served alongside other believers.  Timothy worked side-by-side with the church members he pastored.  In Paul’s earlier letter, the Holy Spirit gave him instructions on the selection of fellow workers such as elders and deacons.
  3. Timothy was told by his mentor to find some men to mentor.  “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:2).  Christians of all ages need to be training and equipping people for ministry.  In whatever ministry you are currently serving, you should be preparing your successor.  It might be weeks, or it might be years before they follow in your footsteps, but you need to start training people to do what you do now.  Even if you do not step down for a long time, it is more fun to serve in a ministry with someone else.

May God bless you as you build your relationships in Christ.

Pastor George

Dear Church Family and Friends, Today we are going to be taking a look at the connection between our life experiences and our commission to make disciples. We have all had a variety of experiences in life: some good, some bad, and some mediocre. God is sovereign, which means that He is in control. He [Read more…]

Dear Church Family and Friends, Today we are going to talk about the personality that God has shaped for us.  We all are familiar with the word “personality,” but might have some difficult defining it.  Personality is made up of the characteristic patterns of a person’s mind, will and emotions that make that person unique.  [Read more…]

Dear Church Family and Friends, We are in the middle of a sermon series on our SHAPE:  Spiritual gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, and Experiences.  As we address our abilities, here are some myths that you and I have probably been taught. Myth #1:  People aren’t born with abilities; all abilities must be learned by experience. [Read more…]
