Thank you for visiting unitybaptist.church This is the landing page, a static front page you will always see first. A listing of recent posts is on the right and each page of the site has a tab that appears above.
Let me be the first to welcome you to Unity Baptist Church! Perhaps you are looking for a church to visit in person or maybe you have been to a service and are now doing a little research. In either case I will take a moment and share a little about us.
As a small country church, we don’t have people directing traffic in the parking lot or a team of greeters to meet you at the front door. But I can promise you this: any visitor will be met and warmly welcomed. Our people will be happy to see you. My wife and I have served at Unity since October of 2014. I cannot write a long list of things our church “has to offer” but our goal is to be the body of Christ in this community. We read and study God’s Word and seek to share the Gospel – Good News – at every available opportunity.
Sunday School begins at 10 am and our worship service is at 11. Singing, praying, reading scripture, giving, preaching and the response to preaching are all acts of worship. We have Discipleship on Sunday evenings which is a small group focused on living the Christian life and a short worship service after that. On Wednesday evenings we have a short Bible study followed by prayer meeting. Throughout the year we have events like Easter Egg Hunts, 4th of July cookouts, Trunk ‘R Treat around Halloween and a Christmas dinner. Visit a few different things to get a good idea of who we and what we’re about. I don’t shove religion down anybody’s throat; I want to introduce to Jesus and tell you more about him. And don’t get the wrong idea – we’re still learning as well, myself included.
You can read about our beliefs, the church’s history and listen to sermons at this website. Contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call (770) 608-7005 to schedule a pastoral meeting or discuss any concerns you may have. Don’t be a stranger. Feel free to drop in anytime we are here.
Much of Acts 2 is Peter’s sermon on the day of Pentecost. After the healing of a lame beggar at the beginning of Acts 3, Peter preaches another sermon. He explains that the God of the Hebrews, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, raised his servant Jesus. He quotes Moses in saying there will be a leader like him, and offers another invitation to believe in the one that can turn them away from all iniquities.
Peter preached on the Day of Pentecost and the audience was “cut to the heart.” What happens next is recorded in Acts 2:37-47. God’s plan of salvation has not changed and the Holy Spirit is at work today convicting of sin and drawing people to Jesus.
Taking a break from the Acts series we recognize fathers on Father’s Day and look to our heavenly father as the perfect example. Note: It was Robert Kennedy, not John F. Kennedy, that gave the speech referenced in the sermon.
Peter’s sermon on the day of Pentecost is recorded in Acts 2:14-36. It is the first “Christian message” in that it’s the first time the death, burial and resurrection were proclaimed. Peter explains that God’s Spirit is being poured out on mankind as the prophets had said and that Jesus has been made Lord and Christ.
We have made it to Acts Chapter 2! The disciples remained in Jerusalem as instructed before the ascension and the Holy Spirit came as promised. We don’t have to wait for the Holy Spirit today but we do need to pay attention and take action when he leads.
I try hard not to preach the same sermon every year on any particular occasion. This year for Mother’s Day we looked at 3 biblical accounts of how mothers should be treated, by both children and grown children.
We watched these at church last year and probably the year before. This website has a different audience with some overlap as my personal blog. I plan to watch these every year for as long as YouTube exists or until Christ come back. The greatest story ever told never gets old and this is a dramatic and engaging way of sharing part of it, in my humble opinion.
The first video combines audio from D.M. Lockridge with a digitally enhanced slideshow. The second has footage from The Passion of Christ.
