Who We Are

Van Born Baptist Church BuildingOrganized in 1956, we are family-oriented church with bible classes for all ages. Our focus is on evangelizing the lost and strengthening the family for the cause of Christ, teaching all to live soberly, righteous, and godly in this present world. We desire to fulfill the Great Commission by supporting missionaries both at home and abroad, and engaging in evangelism in our own community. We are an Independent Baptist church, and are not affiliated with any College, Mission Board, Fellowship, Association, or Convention. The following is a summary of who we are:

Real Preaching
Real, dynamic, passionate preaching straight from the Bible still brings more lasting change than comedy routines, drama, or motivational talks. Come discover the benefit of real Bible preaching.

Real Men
The rumor that masculine men hate church isn’t entirely true. Come discover an environment where plenty of real men still believe God expects them to step up and provide strong, loving leadership in the church and in their families.

Real Music
Most church music amounts to dumbing down the lyrics and cranking up the volume to build interest. The hymns we sing still generate a real attitude towards God that is anything but lifeless and boring.

Real Reverent
Casual is all the rage in American institutions, but God deserves better. While you won’t find a judgmental spirit here, you will find a real church family that still believes reverence is right for the presence of God.

Real Families
Our culture’s experiments with the family have left American homes in a mess. We still teach the biblical roles as the best answer and as our only hope for real, stable, fulfilled homes.

Real Exciting
God doesn’t need the Top 40 or the latest fads to be exciting. We still enjoy several real biblical principles and practices that stir the soul in a way that strobe lights and dancing in the aisles can never manufacture.

Timeless or Trendy?
Malls are trendy. Churches should feel timeless. With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfill that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture. We want you to know that we are a real church that still feels like church. It won’t feel like a rock concert, comedy club, or motivational seminar. It’s not old-fashioned, as in 50 years ago. It’s timeless, as in 2000 years ago.
