We Believe

...the Bible is the inspired and the only infallible and authoritative written Word of God

...there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power.  After this comes the eternal state where God makes all things new. the blessed hope - the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming.

...the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.

...the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides answers to human need through believing prayer. the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.

...the gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to Rom. 12, 1 Cor. 12, Eph. 4 are given to believers for the purpose of ministry in the Church. the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting loss.

Hello and thank you for visiting the Leaf River Baptist Church website.

Our congregation is made up of believers of all ages who share together in a unique blend of Christian Service. "...Speaking the truth with love, we will grow up in every way into Christ, who is the head. [16] The whole body depends on Christ and all the parts of the body are joined and held together.  Each part does its own work to make the whole body grow and be strong with love." (Eph 4:15-16 NCV)

LRBC is a very caring congregation that strongly believes in reaching out beyond themselves to spread and apply the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Here you will find a warm welcome and ample opportunity to grow in your relationship with Jesus and His Church.

I am very pleased to be able to pastor such a great group of Christian people, and we welcome you to join with what God is doing here.

Rev. Randy Newton - Senior Pastor
