We exist to make Jesus known

 
 

fellowshipiconWho We Are

We welcome you to Lancaster Baptist Church!
 
We like to consider ourselves as a community of grace that is growing and going.
 
We are a church built upon the foundation of Jesus Christ.
 
We would describe ourselves as conservative, Bible believing followers of our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
We are Southern Baptist and we are a part of the Kentucky Baptist Convention.
 
 
 
Stated simply, the Gospel can be summarized as:
 
 God … Man … Christ … Response
 
Read the following outline to get to the heart of the Good News from a biblical perspective.
Jesus said, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink” (John 7:37). So then, come and receive from Jesus, the only one who gives living water, and never thirst again!

outreachWhat We Believe

The Scriptures – We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. It contains no error and it is our final authority in all things.
 
God – We believe there is one true and living God. He has revealed Himself to us in three persons: Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.
 
Man – We believe that man is created in the image of God. In the garden, man sinned and brought sin to the entire human race.
 
The Gospel – We believe that Jesus lived a sinless life, died on the cross, and was resurrected on the third day in victory over sin and death.
 
Salvation – We believe that there is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ. We are saved by grace through faith in Christ.
 
The Church – We believe that the church is the Body of Christ including the redeemed of all the ages. The Bible teaches believers to be a part of a local fellowship of believers.
 
The Second Coming – We believe that one day Jesus will return to earth. The dead will be raised and He will judge all men in righteousness. Unbelievers will receive eternal punishment and believers will live forever with the Lord.
 
Christian Living – We believe that God’s justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely and others sacrificially, and to live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor and justice for the oppressed. With God’s Word, the Spirit’s power, and fervent prayer in Christ’s name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed.
