What to expect on Sunday

We are a vibrant, casual, multi-generational and multi-ethnic faith family who gathers each week to worship, grow, and serve.


real people. 

We believe that faith was never meant to be a solo endeavor. God has placed us in community for several reasons: 


+ To be a reflection of the unity seen in the Trinity

   (John 17:11).


+ To provoke one another to grow in Christ-centered, 

    missional living (Hebrews 10:24). Gospel community

    becomes a reality when we submit to both the hearing and

    doing of God's Word (James 1:22).  


Real worship.

The Worship Gathering at Abner Creek is a rhythm of revelation and response. When we gather, we listen to revelation from God's Word through music and teaching, and respond not only with our voices, but also with our lives. The Worship Gathering thus becomes the fuel that drives the mission: 


+ REAL PEOPLE. 

+ REAL WORSHIP. 

+ REAL CHANGE. 

+ REAL PURPOSE.

 

What to expect...


+ A Relaxed Atmosphere


You’ll notice some folks who like to dress up for church and others who don’t. Feel free to wear what’s comfortable for you, and you’ll fit right in! Before bible study or morning worship, feel free to grab a cup of coffee on either side of the lobby and connect with others. 


+ Friendly People


We’d love to meet you, so feel free to introduce yourself. Please let us know what we can do to care for you while you’re here.


+ The Gospel of Jesus Christ has changed our lives

 

In expressing our heartfelt gratitude and love for our Savior, we can't overstate the importance of the worship gathering. We come together to be refreshed by His presence, encouraged by His promises, and transformed by His truth. We are real people, participating in real and authentic worship, experiencing real change and life transformation, with a real purpose - to see God glorified and His gospel proclaimed to all the world. 


Real change.

Abner Creek Baptist Church is a fellowship of Real People who, by the Grace of God are connected by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and are discovering and growing in three realities:  


+ Real Worship - Living our lives in response to the supreme worth of Christ


+ Real Change - Living our lives in pursuit of the supreme character of Christ


+ Real Purpose - Living our lives for the sake of the glory of Christ among all nations


real purpose.

It seems like everywhere you turn, there are people offering their spin on what the Christian life is all about. With all the books, websites, conferences, radio programs, and podcasts, it’s easy for the clarity of the mission to become muddied. The fact is, Jesus gave one command to the church as He was leaving this world: Make disciples.


This command is so clear and so important that it is recorded in each of the four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) and again in the book of Acts. Specifically in Acts 1:8, Jesus said, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." The rest of the New Testament is a record of the church doing just that. When you step back away from the individual books, it’s easy to see how the church had missions as its one, singular goal.


Revelation 5 gives us the reason why. There we are given a peek into the future reality of people from every “from every tribe and language and people and nation” gathered around the throne of God and worshipping Him forever. That WILL happen. And the way it will happen is by the local church engaging their community and the world with the gospel.  


Put simply, we do missions because Jesus said to…because people desperately need the gospel…and because God is infinitely worthy of the worship of all people.
