Welcome to Bible Baptist Church
We welcome you to the Bible Baptist Church.
Our mission is to magnify Jesus Christ our Lord in our worship, work, witness and walk, beginning in Columbia County and extending to the world. To accomplish this mission, we desire to do what Christ would do if He were here physically. That is, to show compassion on the social and physical needs of the people but primarily to be used as vessels in seeking the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
From The Pastor's Study
1 Samuel 4:11 - And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain.
I grew up in the ’70s and knew a lot of people who had a rabbit’s foot as a good luck charm. If something good happened throughout their day, they would credit the rabbit’s foot. As if the good luck did not come from their hard work, discipline, study habits etc.…I have talked with many sports fans who believe their jersey or blue socks is/are the key ingredient in their team’s success. In the summer of 88, my brother, friend, and I drove from Cincinnati, Ohio to Washington D. C. for the weekend. I remember when we finally made it back home and parked the car in the lot of the apartment complex we lived in, patting the car on the hood and praising the car for a job well done. Even now, I laugh at my ignorance believing that 1986 Ford Escort was able to rise above having no oil change, tune-up, or new breaks and get me to Washington D. C. and back safely. Evidently, twentieth and twenty-first century America is not the only ones that lived with good luck charms. During the time of the Judges, the Israelites viewed God as a rabbit’s foot or their lucky blue socks. They thought they could pull God out whenever they needed a victory. The Lord in 1 Samuel 4:11 took umbrage with the Philosophy of being used as a good luck charm.
