“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works.” –Hebrews 10:24
Legacy Baptist Church is a place where people gather together for the purpose of worshipping the Lord and learning more about God through His Word. We invite you to come and join us for our services. We understand that visiting a church can be uncomfortable and overwhelming. Therefore, it is our desire to provide you with some information regarding our services that you may find helpful. Our church family is very welcoming, and it is our desire to make your first visit and encouraging and spiritually profitable experience. Please see the questions and explanations below. If you have any further questions regarding our services, please feel free to contact us and we would love to assist you.
What are the church services like?
Our services are designed to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and direct our focus on Him. We strive to be God-centered and Bible-based in our worship services. We desire to maintain an attitude of reverence to God and devotion to His Word in all we do. In pursuit of this goal, our music selection is chosen from time-honored hymns of the Faith and conservative, doctrinally-sound Christian music written by modern-day composers. We do not conform our worship to the culture around us nor do we tie ourselves to the traditions of men. Rather, we try to reflect the holy character of God in our worship. View the Our Worship page and the Visit Us page for further clarity regarding our services.
How long are the services?
Our Sunday School service lasts for a little less than an hour. Our other services usually last between 1 to 1.5 hours in length. While we are mindful of the time, we also retain flexibility in our services to allow the Holy Spirit to work in hearts and lives.
Do you really keep everyone together in the services?
Yes, we do! All ages are welcome in our services. We intentionally do not divide families but see the benefit of entire families worshipping together. We believe that everyone benefits from this approach. A mother’s room is available to help accommodate needs that arise. We welcome the blessing of having children in our services even with the extra noises.
Must you give money as an offering?
Our church is supported by the regular giving of its members. No visitor is expected to give financially to the church. If people do desire to give to the work of the Lord, there is an offering box that is available at each service.
How should people dress?
There is not a dress code for attending our church. Many within our church choose to wear their ‘Sunday Best’ to services which may include a suit, tie, or dress. However, we want you to come and visit regardless of what you wear.
Are there programs for children?
We are an age-integrated church (meaning we don’t normally separate our church family into divided classes), and we have grown to see the many benefits of worshipping, learning, and fellowshipping together as a church body. We realize this might be a new idea for you, and so we’re delighted to further answer your many questions in person, through reading the explanation on this website, or through our Contact page.
Are you an independent Baptist church?
Independent Baptist churches function autonomously and without any hierarchy of authority outside of the church. We do enjoy a growing fellowship with other Baptist churches in the state and beyond, but we are not part of a larger Baptist denomination.
What version of the Bible do you use?
We use the King James Version (KJV) in all of our services for a variety of reasons that we would be happy to explain. We think you will benefit immensely from having the same unified reading as the rest of the assembly. We use our Bibles during the preaching/teaching times, but also for public reading of Scripture passages, and weekly Scripture memory times.
“…that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.” –1 Timothy 3:15
