When you come to our church you will sense the IMPACT that Christ has had and is having on people's lives. We have folks here from all walks of life that have given their lives to Jesus and are now singing praises of God to God. Come and see what's going on here at Coastal! We are truly making an IMPACT on people's lives.
People often ask what is the church all about? I would like to point people to Jesus' command for the church, which is found in Matthew 28 . . . "make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you." Here at Coastal Baptist we have adopted this command and made it our mission to make this our focus. We base all our guiding principles on this command. If the events, programs or activities do not line up with this command it won't be done.
"Thank you for looking us up on the web. We're a group of people that's striving to live for the Lord. Please feel free to leave us a note or email us if you have any questions."
Why We Exist:
We exist to make and multiply Christ-followers who magnify the glory of God.
Our Central Ministry Focus:
To accomplish our mission we must teach and model God's Word in the power of the Spirit, engaging our world as agents of transformation.
Our Guiding Principles:
To accomplish our mission as Servants of Christ, we choose to be:
God's love for us is our primary motivation in all we do, while our love for Christ and our neighbors shapes the way we do all things.
We are building a worshipping community where all are welcome, as we pursue real relationships with God and one another, through Jesus Christ.
We approach every day mindful that this life is just the prelude to the next, and that our charge is to rescue the perishing, and prepare them for heaven.
We will persevere in faithfulness to God and His Word, to one another, to the family, and to our shared mission.
We are committed to being big-hearted in our relationships, stewardship, and involvement in the mission of Christ.
We believe that bringing the unchanging truth of God's Word to those in a diverse and rapidly changing culture will demand creative thinking and doing.
We are truthful in our communication, transparent in our relationships, and conduct ourselves in a manner that is worthy of Christ.
We work together as loyal, participative partners, respecting the authority of those who lead us, and value team wins above individual accomplishment.
We embrace the call to consistent spiritual growth, and believe our progress in becoming more like Christ should be evident to the watching world.
Our Goal for Christ-followers at Coastal Baptist:
Through the power of the Spirit and the Word, we are making and multiplying Christ-followers who live out love from pure hearts and good consciences and authentic faith (1 Timothy 1:5).
