Visitor Guide

From the moment you walk into our open door you will feel a warm and welcome feeling as you meet our church family.  We want you to feel at home here at Open Door Baptist.
 
Not quite sure what to expect?  Let us walk you through a typical visit.
 
When you walk in the door you will be greeted by one of our church family.  They will hand you a bulletin describing the events of the day's service.  Feel free to ask any questions you might have and they will be happy to assist you.

 WorshipService
Our worship service at  11:00 a.m. will begin with time of singing together as a congregation.  We'll share any announcements  and also take up an offering during this time.  The offering is used to meet the financial needs of our ministries.  After the congregational singing, choir and special music Pastor Gene Springer will preach  a challenging message from God's Word.  Our main focus at ODBC is to preach and teach the Word of God. We believe that is still the need in the hearts of men today (John 5:24).   After being challenged from the Word of God we will be dismissed with  a closing song and prayer.
 
  • What should I wear?
    • We don't judge people based on what they wear, but we believe that we are coming to worship God as we join together at ODBC.  Generally we make an effort to step things up a notch in respect to the God we love.  Men usually wear a shirt and tie, ladies wear dresses.

  • What translation of the Bible do you use?
    • We use and promote the King James Version of the Bible because we believe that God has preserved it for the English speaking people of the world.
 
In these  42 years God has allowed us to have assembled some wonderful folk who are like-minded and have a spirit of unity and love. It is truly a visible, vibrant family of God at work for God. 

Our goal is not to entertain but to lead people to Christ and then to worship Him in truth and spirit. Thus, the emphasis is on the truth of the Word of God and not any other means of attracting people to our services. The music we use is Christ honoring rather than flesh pleasing and is of the traditional sense.
