ABOUT US

Serving as a Lighthouse in our Community

ABOUT US

We are Bogue Banks Baptist Church… a family of Christians committed to the Lord Jesus Christ. We are an autonomous body of Christ affiliated with the Atlantic Baptist Association, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, and the Southern Baptist Convention.

Jesus Christ is the absolute head of our church and we acknowledge no religious authority but the infallible and inerrant Word of God, the Bible.

As members of this church we have pledged to be growing Christians, seeking to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord.

OUR MISSION

To serve as a lighthouse in our community which reflects the love, grace, and mercy of Jesus Christ. To provide a place where Christians may gather to study the Word of God, to fellowship, and have their spiritual needs met by those of like faith. We are committed to serve both our regular members and the host of guests we have on an annual basis.

AN INVITATION

It is our sincere desire that you would consider visiting with us during our Sunday Bible Study hour and Worship hour or at our Wednesday evening prayer and Bible study time. You may be looking for a church home or just a place where you can come and study God’s Word with other Christians. You may be looking for Christian fellowship. You may be in the process of making the most important decision of your life. . .accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Whatever your need, we want to play a part in helping you meet it.

We have many activities going on that are designed to minister to a variety of needs. Please call the church office for an up-date on what is currently being offered.

Our membership is open to all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and have been baptized by immersion and are of like faith.

We have two classes of membership: Regular and Watchcare. Watchcare members are those whose membership is at another church but they desire to have an established relationship with this church. Watchcare members have all rights of membership except the right of voting on church matters and holding an office in the church requiring Regular membership.

We seek to reach people for Christ. This includes those who have not trusted Him as Savior and those folks looking for a “church home” where they can worship almighty God in spirit and in truth.

OUR HISTORY

Our church began as the First Baptist Island Mission in May of 1983. We met in houses and meeting rooms and pursued the goal of becoming an established church.

In May of 1985 Bogue Banks Baptist Church was constituted as a church and became the first Baptist church on the island.

The church was blessed in many ways by both members and non-members in striving to build our own building. In March 1988 ground breaking ceremonies were held at our present location and construction began. In January 1989 we moved into our beautiful facilities.
