Whether you're wondering, questioning, or a committed Christian, you're welcome at Reedy Branch Church.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
ROMANS 5:8 (KJV)
The mission of Reedy Branch Free Will Baptist Church is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of the community; to bring people into the Kingdom of God; to make Christian disciples by teaching the Bible and sound doctrine; to help people grow spiritually and emotionally through worship, counseling, and fellowship. Our outreach goes beyond the community as we support missions, childcare, education, and other ministries of the Original Free Will Baptists of North Carolina.
To be a thoroughly biblical church that passionately seeks God's manifested presence and leadership. To be a lighthouse whereby people can know we love God by how we love God's people. To put 'The Great Commission of Jesus Christ' into action by bringing God's Word to the lost.
What We Believe
We believe there is one living, true and eternal God, the Father, in whom are all things, from everlasting to everlasting, glorious and unchangeable in all His attributes. We believe there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, the only Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary, who was truly God and truly human.
We believe there is one Holy Spirit, the precious gift of the Father through His Son, who is the divine presence in our lives. We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, all believers everywhere. We believe in the general provision made of God in Christ for all who respond in total trust and commitment. We believe in the fellowship of the saints through the worshipping community and in the promise of life eternal. Amen.

Having given ourselves to God, by faith in Christ, and adopted the word of God as our rule of faith and practice, we now give ourselves to one another by the will of God in this solemn covenant.
We promise by His grace to love and obey Him in all things, to avoid all appearance of evil, to conformity to the world, from all sanction of the use and sale of intoxicating beverages, the abuse of drugs, and to "provide things honest in the sight of all men."
We agree faithfully to discharge our obligations in reference to the study of the Scriptures, secret prayer, family devotions, and public worship and by self-denial, faith, and good works endeavor to "grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."
We will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together for church conferences, public worship, and observance of the ordinances of the Gospel; nor fail to give according to our ability for the support of the church and all its benevolent work.
We agree to accept Christian admonition and reproof with meekness, and to watch over one another in love, endeavoring to "keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace," to be careful of one another's happiness and reputation, and seek to strengthen the weak, encourage the afflicted, admonish the erring, and as far as we are able promote the success of the church and of the Gospel.
We will everywhere hold Christian principles and obligations supreme, esteem it our chief business to make Christ known to the world, and constantly pray and toil that the Kingdom of God may come, and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
To this end we agree to co-operate in the promotion of denominational ministries, the support of the work of the local church, and the evangelization of the world.
May the God of peace sanctify us wholly, and preserve us blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
