Our purpose here at PSBC is defined in the following phrase...
"Poplar Springs Baptist Church exist to make much of God by making disciples of Jesus Christ"
This means that we seek to reflect the glory of God in all that we do by growing to look more and more like Jesus Christ.
To accomplish this purpose at PSBC we focus our resources and efforts in ministry at all levels on achieving five primary tasks as the church:
Exalting God in WORSHIP
o We aim to make much of God by exalting his worth when we gather collectively for times of worship (Psalm 95; Acts 2:46-47) and in every aspect of our daily lives (Romans 12:1-2).
Equipping ourselves with the WORD
o We believe the Bible is God's inspired word (2 Timothy 3:16) and in equipping ourselves with it through the expositional, Christ exalting preaching of the Word (2 Timothy 4:1-5).
Engaging the nations and our neighbors in MISSION
o We are a Great Commission Church and seek to engage the nations (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8) and our neighbors (Acts 1:8; Matthew 5:13-16) with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Empowering ourselves through PRAYER
o We believe God hears our prayers and by praying we are acknowledging that we need God to work and empower us to accomplish the mission he has called us to (Acts 2:42).
Existing together in COMMUNITY
o We seek to exist as a community of believers that promote and live out true biblical fellowship (Hebrews 10:19-25; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27).
"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."
