Who We Are
Our mission, at Creston Baptist Church, is to play our part in the fulfillment of the Great Commission by engaging in discipling through evangelism, baptizing believers and teaching the Word of God.
Matthew 28:19-20a "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (NIV)
Our vision is to reach people in the Creston Valley who do not know Christ Jesus and introduce them to our church family where they will be loved, cared for and nurtured in their walk with God.
Our values constitute our philosophy of ministry, declare our priorities and shape our decisions as we pursue our vision. Our core values are based on Acts 2:42 - "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and prayer." (NIV) and on 2 Timothy 4: verse 2 - "Preach the Word, be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage - with great patience and careful instruction." and verse 5 "but you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry." (NIV) and include:
a. Relevant Bible teaching
b. Corporate prayer and worship
c. Fellowship in care groups
d. Evangelism and missions
e. Equip the Body of Christ
What We Do
Our purpose in Creston is to present to those around us the reality of a life lived for Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. We want to be the hands and feet of Jesus, helping all those we meet to find the peace that only He can give. In this turbulent world, sometimes it seems as though there is no sanctuary, no place of refuge, no hiding place. Jesus is that place, that Person Who can provide that peace and refuge.
When you come into our church, our hope is that you will find a warmth and welcome like no other. To be greeted with love and respect, no matter who you are, where you've been, or what you've done. None of those things make you less redeemable to Christ Jesus. We want to reflect the love of God to everyone who enters our church doors!
