  • Exalt the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in worship and fellowship,
  • Learn and follow God’s Word

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,

I hope that you had a heart-warming and soul-stirring day of thanksgiving.
Today, we start focusing on the coming (advent) of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
The first Sunday of Advent is focused on the prophecies of the Messiah.
Here are some of the prophecies found in the Old Testament and fulfilled
by Jesus in the New Testament.

1) The Messiah would be the “seed” of the woman – Genesis 3:15.
2) The Messiah would be the descendant of Abraham through whom all
nations would be blessed – Genesis 12:3.
3) The Messiah would be a prophet like Moses – Deuteronomy 18:15-19.
4) The Messiah would also be a descendant of King David – 2 Samuel
5) The Messiah would be the Son of God – Psalm 2:1-12.
6) The Messiah would be forsaken and pierced, but vindicated – Psalms
7) The Messiah would be the rejected cornerstone – Psalm 118:22-24.
8) The Messiah would be born of a virgin – Isaiah 7:14.
9) The Messiah would be the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace – Isaiah 9:6-7.
10) The Messiah would be preceded by a forerunner – Isaiah 40:3-5.
11) The Messiah would be a light for the nations of the world – Isaiah 42:1-6.
12) The Messiah would bring in a new covenant – Jeremiah 31:31.

The odds of any one man living from the time after the prophecies were
made until the present time and fulfilling just eight prophecies is 1 in 10 to
the seventeenth power. But there are 300 – 350 prophecies which were
written in the Old Testament to help us identify which person is the
promised Messiah. Jesus fulfilled all the prophecies of the Old Testament
– He, without any doubt, is the promised Messiah.

May God bless you through Jesus the Messiah,

Pastor George
