The Local Church

A local church is a community of redeemed believers who, by faith, follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In obedience to Scripture they organize under qualified leadership, gather regularly for worship, live in dynamic community, practice church ordinances, and scatter to fulfill the Great Commission, united and empowered by the Spirit of God.

Tri-Cities Baptist Church is a redeemed community of Jesus followers on mission together. This is more than a tagline. It is the expression of our identity and purpose.



We are redeemed people, not perfect people. We are reconciled to God by His grace, through faith in Jesus. View The Story tract for more info. 


We are a family, not isolated individuals. We are united in Jesus, therefore we are eternally brothers and sisters in the family of God.


Christianity is a relationship, not a religion. We make much of Jesus, abiding in Him in position and pursuit, and affirming and modeling after Him as the head of the church.


We are an army, not an audience. We are commissioned to take the life-changing message and love of Jesus to all the world.


The Great Commission was given to the church, not an individual. We are individually gifted and collectively mobilized to serve the whole church and carry out the mission as a body of believers.
