If this is your first time visiting us, we’d like to welcome you and let you know that we’ve prayed for you to have wisdom as you seek the Lord’s leading in your life. We certainly don’t think our church is for everybody, but we are thankful that you’ve come this far and want to answer a few questions that visitors tend to have when looking for a church home.
We are located in Alexandria, Va at 2405 Russell Road. Our main service starts at 10:45 on Sunday morning.
What are your services like?
Our services tend to be pretty simple.
We pray, because we believe that God is our provider and that He desires us to seek after Him.
We sing, because God is worthy of our praise.
We preach God’s Word, because we believe that God gives life through His Scriptures.
We proclaim the Gospel, because it is the message of salvation for those who don’t know God and the message of strength for those who do know Him.
We talk a lot about Jesus, because He is the only hope for the world.
What style of music should I expect?
We believe that whatever music we sing should be Christ-exalting, God-glorifying, and Scripture-saturated.
We use instruments to encourage the congregation to lift their voices to Jesus with freedom and joy.
We also believe that there are many songs from various times in history that both honor God and build up the church. In light of this, it isn’t uncommon to hear a song from the 1600’s in the same set with a song from 2016.
What should I wear when I come?
You’ll find all kinds of people wearing all kinds of different clothing. As long as you’re honoring the Lord with what you’ve got on, we don’t care if you’re wearing shorts or suits. The Lord is most concerned with the heart, not your attire.
What should I do with my children?
Parents are free to keep their children in the service with them, and many families choose to do this. We do however offer child care during the service for children up to 5 years old. You may notice that many families will keep their children in the service until the song before the sermon and then take their children back to our children’s ministry. If you have questions when you arrive, just ask, we’ll be happy to help you in any way we can.
What Does it mean to be a Baptist church?
While being a Baptist church can have lots of stereotypes attached with it, we trust that you’ll find that we are a Bible-teaching, Gospel-centered, Christ-exalting, God-glorifying church that believes baptism is for people who repent of their sins and trust in Christ.
