What to Expect
When you walk through the doors at Greenwell Springs Baptist Church, our hope is that you feel like you’re a part of the community. Our ultimate desire, as a body of devoted followers of Jesus, is to create an environment where people can experience the presence of God in a life-transforming way. From a cup of freshly brewed coffee to our unique and passionate generational ministries, we want to give you and your family the opportunity to get connected. We believe that church is more than a weekend service, it is about allowing every person to engage with God in a personal and intimate way.
A WARM GREETING
A heartfelt greeting is a part of what makes a church, a church home. No matter what question you may have just asked, our greeters are always willing to make you feel comfortable and informed.
There’s nothing like the smell of good coffee (or tea) to warm you up. Come to our coffee shop in the south hallway.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
The following is a summary of the beliefs of Greenwell Springs Baptist Church.
You can read The Baptist Faith and Message for our full statement of faith.
There is one God: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; who subsist in unity, and also as three separate distinct Persons.
JESUS CHRIST, GOD’S SON
Jesus Christ is God's Son. He was born of a virgin as both God and man, lived a sinless life, died to atone for the sins of human beings, was buried, arose from the grave, ascended into heaven, and will literally return to earth.
- Matthew 1:22–23
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is the divine helper, assistant, counselor, and instructor and His work is to reveal Jesus Christ, convict of sin, lead to repentance, guide believers, comfort, strengthen, and sanctify the soul.
The Bible is God’s Holy Word. It is inspired by God, inerrant in nature, and has been preserved for humanity today. Thus, it is not only relevant for meeting all of humanity's concerns and questions it is also the sole authority for life.
CREATED MAN’S NEED FOR GOD
Human beings are the special creations of God, made in His image. They fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and all human beings are sinners in need of salvation.
Salvation is a gift through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. Every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven, while those who die in their sins will spend eternity in hell.
Baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christ’s command.
The Church is both a universal and local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
