Surrounded by His Scriptures
The Worship Center at Mims Baptist Church has two unseen, yet symbolically significant features. The first one is a large Bible that was placed in the foundation in a special ceremony. Before the concrete was poured, the membership watched as Pastor Gene Kendrick placed the Bible under the pulpit. Once the concrete foundation was poured, anyone standing in the pulpit will be standing on The Word. This is a reminder that:
We are a people of the Word, believing it to be the infallible, inerrant, and inspired Word of God.
We can stand with assurance on the Word of God. It is God's Word that we proclaim.
The second symbolic feature also involves the Word of God. Before the interior walls of the New Worship Center were completed, members wrote their favorite scripture passages on pieces of paper. The scriptures were then placed inside the walls surrounding the worship area. As we gather for worship, those who minister will be standing on the Word of God and be surrounded by the scriptures. This is a reminder of the power of the Word of God and the comfort it affords to all of us as we worship.
...in Preaching the Word!
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God and that its message of salvation through Jesus Christ, God's Son, is the Only hope of mankind.
We believe that soul winning is the mandate of the Lord to His church, and we take seriously that men, women, youth, and children need the Lord.
...in Worship and Praise!
Our sanctuary is filled with the sounds of joyous praise and adoration of our God.
Ministering is at the heart of what we do. Locally, and around the world, we are attempting to reach people with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
