Hello! We know that it can be challenging as you seek the Lord's leading in searching for a church home. In an effort to help you as you make this decision, here are our answers to a few common questions we found visitors have when considering new church homes.
You can expect to find a warm and welcoming community spanning generations, occupations, and backgrounds. You can expect pews and a pulpit as well as drums and guitars.
Ultimately, you can expect to find a community of sinners, justified by grace through faith in the shed blood of Jesus and actively seeking to spur one another on toward godliness.
This is our favorite question! We at Stafford Baptist want to be known for making much of Jesus Christ. We are imperfect people rescued by the gracious work of God the Son, Jesus Christ, being sanctified through God the Spirit, for the glory of God the Father. We think there is lots of cool things about Stafford Baptist, but there's one important thing: the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We hope and pray that our services are simple, easy to follow and God-glorifying. To that end:
- We Pray, because we are dependent upon God
- We Sing Songs, because God is worthy of our praise
- We Read & Preach the Bible, because in the Bible we find life
- We Proclaim the Gospel, because it is the only message for salvation
- We Focus on Jesus, because He is the only hope for the world
When we gather as a body to sing, we have the joyful privilege of joining together in eager obedience out of the overflow of grateful hearts. We sing a mixture of traditional hymns, contemporary and original music, and older familiar hymn lyrics set to contemporary melodies.
When coming to SBC you'll find people wearing a variety of clothes from shorts and t-shirts, to jeans and a polo to dresses and suits. There is no "dress requirement" in that sense. We believe the Lord cares more about the heart condition than the attire you're wearing.
You are welcome to keep them with you, you'll find many families do. In an effort to help your kids follow along with the sermon and the main idea of the week, we have children activity pages available as you arrive. We do offer childcare for children 3 years and younger. All of our nursery workers are members who have been background checked and trained. And all of them love caring for children. If you have any questions when you arrive, we'll be happy to help in any way we can.
If you are interested in visiting you can find us at 2202 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Stafford VA 22554. Our congregational worship service starts @ 11am. If you would like to let us know you're coming, you can fill out this form.
