You’re important! God created you for a purpose, and you matter to him. At Canaan Baptist Church You Matter To Us. We believe that God desires to have a personal and intimate relationship with each and every person including you! Jesus Christ loved you so much that He died on the cross for you. We invite you to come and experience the love of Christ, worship with other believers, and discover what Canaan Baptist Church is all about! Be our guest this Sunday!
For years, Ed struggled with getting victory over sin in his life. He had grown up in church, but had never experienced what it meant to live a life free from the weight and guilt of sin. God led Ed and his family to give Canaan a try. Once they did, Ed found the Bible centered and liberating truth preached each Sunday to be exactly what he was needing. Since joining Canaan, he has seen his marriage strengthened, family helped, and is experiencing regular victory in the areas he had struggled with for so long.
Every Sunday at Canaan Baptist Church is an exciting time for the whole family. We would love for you to be our guest THIS SUNAY. We are easy to find and have plenty for the whole family.

EXPECT TO BE LOVED! Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience. Well, we want to put you at ease. On your visit, you can expect it to feel like church. You won’t mistake it for a rock concert, a theatre, a Broadway musical, positive-thinking seminar, or a political rally. It feels different from anything else throughout the week – it feels like church. Your first visit to Canaan will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and “at home”! Here are a few answers to some common questions.
WHAT ARE YOUR SERVICES LIKE?
At Canaan, we still believe in preaching God’s Word. It will be direct and unapologetic, but it is truth. Our goal is not to make you laugh or make you cry or even to help you feel good. Our goal is to help you change by understanding how God’s truth affects your daily life. We have found that when people do good, feeling good is automatic and longer-lasting.
You won’t find rock music necessary to get people involved in the singing. The hymns are alive and sung with a passion. You will find some old music and some new songs, but all of them will still sound like they belong to God. And God deserves quality. You’ll find that, too.
Every service will end with an invitation to respond to the challenge from God’s Word. That such a holy God would take time to speak to us is an awesome idea and demands that He receive a response from us. The pastor or trained men and women are always available to pray with you if you need to accept Christ as your Savior or need further help from God’s Word.
WHERE DO I TAKE MY CHILDREN?
Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for every age child. Our nurseries provide a clean and safe environment to help care for your children. Volunteers who work with the children are carefully interviewed, screened, and trained. Parents can have peace of mind while they attend one of the adult Bible study fellowships or the worship services. Nursery is provided for newborns through three years old for all services.
We have separate and comfortable rooms for nursing moms and infant babies.
Exciting classes are provided for children three years old through 6th grade.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
There is not a dress code at Canaan Baptist Church for members or guests. We do not have any formal dress code for members or guests. We simply encourage folks to give God their best with what they have. Because God is the audience of the service, you’ll find it a little more formal without being stuffy. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress. The trend in many churches is to promote a casual environment. We have chosen, instead, to recognize that God is present and we want to dress in whatever our best might be. It is not an attempt to “impress” God or anyone else, but rather a sincere desire to honor Him. You will still find a welcoming environment free of concern that someone is judging how you are dressed.
AM I EXPECTED TO GIVE IN THE OFFERING?
No. We don’t invite you to Canaan for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
