Our Purpose at SRB is…
Loving Him through worship,
Loving Them through ministry and fellowship, as He is…
Changing Lives through discipleship and missional outreach.
Do you know how many seeds are in an apple?
What about how many apples in an apple?
Or more importantly, how many TREES are in an apple?
As for His Kingdom, we THINK ORCHARD.
This reminds us that we are to be Kingdom minded; a church that is seeking to build up HIS Kingdom and not our church. Thinking Orchard is how our purpose statement is lived out.
Because of this, we are involved with the Columbus Baptist Association and partnering with other churches in different ministries and missions locally, within our state, across our country and around the world. Specifically, we are involved in Valley Rescue Missions, Crossroads Addition Recover Program, Sound Choices Pregnancy Clinic, Rutledge State Prison, Operation Christmas Child, GBC Children’s Home and more. We also have been on short-term mission trips to South Carolina, Arkansas, Kentucky, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Zimbabwe, Thailand, Uganda, and East Asia.
Go therefore and 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; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
Matthew 28: 19-20 (NASB)
