MISSION The Mission of Bible Baptist Church is to glorify God in a manner reflective of His nature as revealed in His Holy Scriptures through a commitment to the Great Commission mandate to spread the gospel, both locally and globally; through the preaching and teaching of His Word as a means to Christlikeness; through corporate and individual worship of God; and through the ministry of baptism, the Lord’s Supper, and Christian fellowship.
Rev. Phil Golden Jr. I accepted the Lord as my personal Savior at a very young age. My whole life was spent in a pastor’s family, but it was not until the summer between 6th and 7th grade that I felt God moving particularly in my life.
At the age of 13, I felt God’s calling in my life to commit to full-time Christian service. Particularly, I felt God’s call in my life to preach His Word. It was at BBC that I preached my first sermon and I feel blessed to be able to still be a part of the ministry here. After completing my Seminary studies, my wife Rita and I, following God’s leading, moved back to our hometown of Pittsburgh. I have a heart to see those who do not know Christ come to know him and those that do know Christ continue to know him better. Proclaiming and displaying Christ to the community around us is my ultimate desire for the ministry of Bible Baptist Church.
At Bible Baptist Church, we are not ashamed of the Bible or what it teaches. What we believe about God, about how He has revealed Himself to man, about mankind’s sin and the salvation that can be wrought through faith in Christ is detailed in our doctrinal statement.
This statement is by no means meant to be an exhaustive declaration of everything that is taught at BBC. Rather, its purpose is to tell you what we consider the most fundamental truths of the Christian faith and where we stand.
First and foremost, our doctrinal statement is based not on man’s opinion but on God’s Holy Word. After each article, there is a list of biblical references that support the statements made throughout that article of our doctrinal statement. This is done to show that we believe what we believe because it is what God has said!
We encourage you to read through our Doctrinal Statement and learn what we believe here at BBC.
The Word At BBC, we base everything we believe and do on God’s Holy Word. In our worship, God’s Word is the focus. In every service, our pastor brings a Bible-based message so that we learn more about our Great God and how we should respond to Who He is!
Giving First off, we are not after your wallet. We believe that God will provide all the needs of BBC. But we also believe that giving is an important part of worship. In every service, we provide a way for the “cheerful giver” to worship through giving to the church and to the missionaries we support all around the world.
Music At BBC, we love to worship and praise our God through singing. From our choir’s specials to our congregational singing, we see music as a great tool through which we can praise God. We want the focus of our music to be on God and in line with His nature and character. We worship with traditional music that is vibrant and from the heart.
Outreach BBC is here to make disciples of Christ. Therefore, we believe that it is our duty to take the message of the gospel to our community and around the world. We have various activities throughout the year to minister to our community and share the light of the gospel. We also support missionaries, who take the gospel around the world, with both our prayers and our financial support.
