Getting connected is easy. If you do not know what you are good at, why not begin taking a spiritual gift analysis. The analysis will help you discover what gifts God had given you for the purpose of helping the body of Christ. Go here to begin.
The Christian life is not a life of privacy, for everyone who becomes a Christian is brought into fellowship with Jesus Christ. What does that mean? It means that we are not above anything that Christ did not share—His joys, an abundant life, and His sufferings. But when we do face difficult times, the same words that Jesus spoke to His disciples apply to us today: “…But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33, NIV).
Our Christian walk is meant to be connected in fellowship with God and one another. We do this at Smithfield Baptist through Bible studies, weekly programs, special events, and outreach. So, get connected today!
Our faith is put to action when we begin to SERVE God by helping others. We become the eyes, hands, feet, and mouth of Christ as we yield ourselves to the leading of His Holy Spirit. This is where the Christian faith becomes exciting and we truly begin to grow. Not only are you strengthened in the faith, but the body of Christ becomes strong by serving the people around us. Sometimes you may seem your service seem trivial, but nothing is ever considered so in the eyes of God!
All plants begin as a seed. For the seed to grow, it must have good soil and nutrients. The same applies to a Christian. Christian growth begins with a relationship with Jesus Christ through daily prayer, reading and application of scripture, and fellowship.
There are many opportunities for you to GROW at Smithfield Baptist—from children’s and youth programs to Adult Bible groups to our Contemporary and Traditional worship services. We invite you to get involved in the excitement that is part of Smithfield Baptist today!
