WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT?
We are a place where families can learn about the love of Christ and worship together. We want to lift up and glorify Jesus Christ as Lord. Our church family is engaged in worship, Bible study, discipleship, evangelism and fun! We have a place for everyone! In addition, to our Sunday morning services, we meet on Wednesday and Sunday evenings. Click here for more information on all our service times and location. Start planning your visit now by choosing your Sunday morning worship service.

If your worship is a little more modern, then you will love our contemporary service. Our early service is led by our praise band. The music is a modern style blended with the timeless hymns of the Church. We offer a sound that is diverse in genre, yet completely focused on Christ our Savior.

Looking for a place to worship in song and message? Then the traditional worship service is for you. Our music offers hymns and special music by different soloists. The message is preached from the Word of God. You will leave the service feeling closer to the Lord and challenged to live an abundant life in Christ.
We have age appropriate activities for your children at each stage of their growth to teach them about Jesus and help them learn the love of God. Nursery is provided for children birth through 4 years old during services and Sunday School. Children, pre-K through 6th grade, join their parents for worship and are dismissed to their own service before the Pastor’s message. Students in grades 7th-12th attend worship with adults and then have their own service while adults are in Sunday School. Click below for more information and activities for each ministry.
Don’t leave before we have a chance to get to know you, stay and fellowship in a Sunday School class. Make new friends and deeper connections as we learn together more about how to follow Jesus. No matter your age, you can connect with others going through the same stage of life. Visit each class and find the one that’s just right for you!

We understand that not everyone has a church background. Below are some common questions we are asked about Jesus, baptism and how to join our church. If you have other questions, please make an appointment with one of our staff members who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. He is God manifested in human form. When we see Jesus we are seeing the Father also. Our Lord said that He and the Father are one. This means that Jesus is both God and man. Before the foundation of the world, God devised a plan to save the human race. That plan is called “Operation Grace.” In this plan, Jesus went to the cross and became the propitiation of our sins and not only ours (believers) but the sins of the whole world.
When the Lord Jesus rose from the dead, He ascended into heaven and “Operation Grace” was complete. Now, all an individual must do to be saved is believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus did all the work of salvation at the cross and we get all the benefit.
There is a GREAT MYSTERY about God’s plan that confounds the human mind. That mystery is defined in this question: How can God be in control of history and yet at the same time, allow man to exercise this volition? Only at the end of time will the question be answered by our Lord.
When an individual accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, they are instantly born in God’s kingdom. Jesus called this experience being “born again” (John 3:3). The apostle Paul refers to it as being “saved” (Romans 10:9). After someone has this salvation experience, they should be baptized as an act of obedience to the Lord (Matthew 28:19).
It is important to remember that baptism comes AFTER we are saved and NOT BEFORE we accept Christ. Also, we are baptized because we ARE saved, NOT IN ORDER TO BE SAVED.
New Testament baptism is by immersion only. Sprinkling or pouring water over someone’s head does not picture a belief in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. Baptism symbolizes our belief in the atoning death and triumphant resurrection of our Lord.
There are two ways to “join” Monument Baptist Church. Before anyone can become a member, they must accept the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior. At the end of each service, we extend an invitation for those wishing to become members. Anyone wishing to unite with Monument Baptist Church is asked to come forward and speak with the pastor at the altar. He will help you with your decision, whether it is to accept Christ or move your membership from another church. This is the BEST way to join as it is a meaningful experience and encourages others.
Since some people are very shy about public decisions, the second way to join us is to meet with the pastor privately either in your home or at the church. He will confirm that you have accepted Christ and you will then be added to the roll of the church. In this case, you do not walk down the aisle.
When a person accepts Christ as their personal Savior, they will receive counseling by a staff member and a time for their baptism will be arranged. Anyone who has been Saved and baptized (immersed) is not required to be re-baptized.
