Sandridge First Baptist Church
Thank you for visiting our website. At Sandridge First Baptist Church, our goal is to “Reach people for Christ and Grow people in Christ”. Our church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, South Carolina Baptist Convention, and Screven Baptist Association. We are proud to be a part of this conservative evangelical network of churches who state their mission is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. Here at Sandridge, we have a rich history of support for missionaries and mission work to all nations. Many of our people are also actively involved in missions and ministry right here at home.
We are passionate about missions because we are passionate about Jesus. We believe that God sent His only Son into the world to die for our sins and make it possible for us to be forgiven. We can be restored to a right relationship with God as our Father. When we acknowledge Jesus as our Lord and Savior, the presence of God is within us and strengthens us daily. We have a new kind of life now and a hope of eternal life with God when our life on earth is over. (John 3:16)
So having a missionary spirit and being passionate about Jesus would definitely be main characteristics of our church. But, we are also a people who believe in growing in our Christian lives and taking care of one another. A biblical church is like a spiritual family. We are to provide a place of caring and support so new Christians can grow to maturity in their faith and witness.
Our website exists to let you know who we are. But, we are just as interested in who you are and what you need. We believe everyone needs to accept the invitation of God to become His child. We also believe there are many people who long to experience unconditional love. God offers that kind of love to you. We desire to help you with that personal decision and then help you to live a life of faith, hope, and love (I Corinthians 13). As Christians, we then have the greatest privilege and purpose on earth. We get to share the good news with others.
