PASTOR’S WELCOME

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 a few special events throughout the year and partner with local churches for others. I don’t shove religion down anybody’s throat; I want to introduce you 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 pastor@unitybaptist.church 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.

Greater than the Sum

Adam may have been dust but sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Adam was made by God in his own image, then God breathed into him the breath of life. In the New Covenant we posses a great treasure (the indwelling Holy Spirit) in jars of clay. I wish had explained the sermon title this well on Sunday morning.

Some Things Never Change

The Genesis 6 flood story and the New Testament plan of salvation probably have more things in common than you realize. Noah’s ark, the exodus from Egypt, the tabernacle in the wilderness, a dozen other things and the bride of Christ waiting for the marriage supper – all examples of God working to accomplish God’s plan. We are invited to participate but it was not Noah’s flood just like it’s not our church. God makes it possible for us to know him. We are the benefactors of his grace. Some things never change.

What Prayer is Like

I once thought I had a brilliant analogy of what prayer is like. I worked it out, it was very clever and beautiful, but it failed to express the theology of prayer correctly. Prayer is not like raindrops. Click the play button and join us as we discover what prayer is really like. It’s not about the one who prayers as much as the one we pray to.

Why Preach the Gospel?

After an awkward introduction – the illustration was great I just couldn’t remember for a moment how it related to the sermon – this really turned around. The lost need to hear the Gospel, Christians need to be reminded of it, and ultimately it is why Jesus came to this world. He feed the hungry, healed the sick, raised the dead and taught scripture but above all else “the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost.”

Storms of Life

Sometimes we are delivered from the storm and sometimes God is right there with us in the storm. In either case we have to trust him.

Meet at the Table

Christmas Day has past but the incarnation and the Lord’s Supper have a lot in common. Because he has made peace by his blood we can meet at the table.

Peace on Earth

“Peace on earth, goodwill toward men.”

You can have peace in a world that doesn’t know peace. Peace came into the world with the light of the world; the light of the world is Jesus.

Joy to the World

We light the Shepherd’s Candle, the brightly colored one, on the third Sunday of Advent. The shepherds are a model for receiving and sharing the Gospel.

Bethlehem

We light the Bethlehem candle on the second Sunday of Advent and focus on the faith of Mary and Joseph. Bethlehem was small, unknown and out of the way. And that is exactly why Jesus was born there.
