Who We Are
The hallmark of Canaan Baptist Church is the preaching of God’s eternal Word. At Canaan Baptist, the preaching is an unapologetic declaration of timeless precepts from the Bible coupled with practical applications for daily life. This type of practical preaching may call for change on the part of the hearer. Therefore, at the end of each service we invite individuals to respond to God by making decisions of change that we’re called for from God’s Word.
Distinctive music is another special aspect of Canaan Baptist Church. After just one service you will realize that our intent is to glorify God to the best of our ability. Our traditional, yet exciting, congregational singing and special music aids each individual’s opportunity to participate in expressing God’s worth to Him.
Finally, we hold to traditional, biblical, Baptist beliefs. In the past, when people stood up for what they believed, they were said to have character. In today’s society, they are tagged as intolerant, old-fashioned, or out-of-touch. We believe the time-tested truths, preached with relevance and compassion at Canaan Baptist, offer that anchor of peace and steadfastness people are seeking.
At Canaan we have adopted a fourfold mission that we refer to as our church’s DNA.
Worship God | We want every member to be a disciple who loves God with his whole being in accordance with the first and greatest commandment. Matt. 22
Love Others | We want every member to love others, the second great commandment. Matt. 22
Serve God | We want every member to find a place of service and activate their spiritual gifts. Ephesians 4:12
Invite Others | We also want every believer to invite others to know Christ, to witness to them, and to invite them to church where they will hear the gospel. Matt. 28:19-20
With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfill that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture. We want you to know that there’s still a church that feels like a church.
