Words of Welcome from Pastor Eric
God is using Black Mountain Baptist Church to see families redeemed by Christ.
Inviting Every Generation to be Transformed by Christ to Love and to Serve
Our mission is the same mission as that of the Father and of the Son. Jesus’ supreme purpose on earth was “to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). That is therefore also the supreme mission of Christ’s church. The work of our church is an extension of the work of her Lord. “As you sent Me into the world,” Jesus said to His Father, “so I have sent them into the world” (John 17:18).
We invite you to view or listen to our sermon series The Church for a full view of our church’s mission.
Mission Strategy to Gather ‧ Grow ‧ Go
Gather — We desire for everyone to be a part of our weekly worship service. We believe that everyone desiring to live for Christ needs to actively participate in a weekly corporate worship service through singing, praying, reading, seeing, preaching, giving and responding to the gospel, and connecting with the larger body of believers.
(Hebrews 10:24-25; Matthew 21:13; Romans 6:3-4; 1 Timothy 4:13; 2 Timothy 4:2; 1 Corinthians 11:24-26; 2 Corinthians 8:3; Colossians 2:6, 3:16)
Grow — We desire everyone to participate in a Bible study group. We recognize that gathering to worship and hearing the preached Word is not the end, and therefore we desire to further teach and apply the gospel. In gentle and understanding ways, the group is structured to be a safe environment where each one can voice their particular questions, doubts and struggles while the others respond with encouragement, exhortation and prayer. Our Bible study groups exist so that speaking the truth in love, we will grow up in every way to be like Jesus.
(1 Timothy 4:13; Ephesians 4:15; Ephesians 4:29; Colossians 4:2; Colossians 4:12; 1 Corinthians 14:26; Hebrews 2:1; Hebrews 4:12-13; Hebrews 10:24-25; Hebrews 12:12-15)
Go — We desire for everyone to be involved in taking the gospel to our local community and beyond to the ends of the earth. We believe that every follower of Jesus has been given gifts and holy ambitions by God for the purpose of making disciples of Jesus throughout the entire world. As we go, we desire to be intentional in living for Jesus and inviting people to join us on mission as we gather again to grow and go for the glory of God in celebrating the gospel of Jesus.
(Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 7:7; 1 Peter 4:10; Colossians 2:6; Ephesians 4:11-12; John 4:29)
Christ-Centered — Jesus is the foundation and focus of all.
(Colossians 1:15-20; Luke 24:25-27; Colossians 1:28; Galatians 2:20).
Prayerful Dependence — Since we joyfully trust God, we pray.
(Philippians 4:6-7; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; James 5:16).
Selfless Love — God’s love compels us to serve.
(Romans 5:8; Mark 10:45; 1 John 3:16; John 13:34-35; Galatians 5:13).
Families Matter — Guided by God’s Word, we celebrate and equip every generation.
(Deuteronomy 6:6-8; Psalm 127; Proverbs 22:6; Titus 2:1-8; Ephesians 6:1-4).
