Core Values: Those commitments or priorities that are central to WHO we are. They motivate all that we do, and they help us to answer the WHY question when it comes to how we spend our time and resources. They also help us assess HOW well we are doing when we evaluate our various ministries.
BCC Mission Statement:
The Mission of Bailey Christian Church is to GLORIFY God, GO into all the world and introduce others to Jesus Christ, and call them to GROW in that relationship.
How do I live out this mission here at BCC? How do we DO life here at BCC?
The “BCC 3 Touches”
We believe it is vital that we gather weekly to be reminded of who we are and whose we are. Sundays include corporate worship, teaching, fellowship/encouragement, communion. (Acts 2:42, Hebrews 10:24-25)
We believe that discipleship, becoming like Jesus, works best when we do life together. Our adults meet weekly in Small Groups, and our youth have weekly youth group meetings to help build community and by providing accountability and encouragement. Prayer, Bible study, sharing and serious laughter take place in these groups! (Romans 12, 1 Cor. 12)
We are called to become like our Jesus. He was a servant (Mark 10:41ff.), so we must become servants as well. We are called as God’s people to be salt and light in a broken world (Matthew 5:13-16), to make a difference. As the Family of God, the Body of Christ, we have each been given gifts by God’s Spirit to minister to the needs of others. We don’t simply meet, take it all in, then go home full and satisfied. We are called to grow in our faith, and growing means selflessly serving one another. (1 Cor. 12) There are a number of ways offered at BCC to get plugged into serving others both in our church family as well as in our community.
BCC House Rules:
Since we are a family, it makes sense we would have some "house rules". That is, these are the things we value most in our church family. Our goal is that all who are part of the BCC family will come to value them, as well.
