WHAT TO EXPECT

Welcome
Brunswick Church is a group of people from all walks of life who are being transformed by Jesus Christ. Every week we join together to worship God and to experience a relevant and powerful message, which teaches truths from the Bible. We are passionate about sharing the love of Christ by caring for each other and positively impacting our community.

Worship
Worship at Brunswick is described as “an encounter with Christ that results in lifestyle change.” We seek to lead you to experience His presence each time we gather, and encourage you to be participators in worship, not spectators. The blended worship style of our church ministers to multiple generations.

Dress
Don't dress to impress...
Feel free to come casual or dressy. We have no dress code - whatever makes you comfortable is great with us.

What about my Kids?
Your kids are safe and they'll have fun. The Club House and New Beginnings Teams are well trained to provide the best possible care for your kids.
We are dedicated to partnering with parents in seeing their children receive a great spiritual foundation for their lives. Each week your child can be a part of exciting environments that teach godly values at an age-appropriate level. God’s Word will come alive to your child as they learn to apply it to their everyday life.

What about Students?
Our desire is to help students Reach for Life by worshiping, connecting, and serving. We believe “Every Student” matters to God. We have weekly connection groups, Wednesday night ministries and retreats all designed to reach out to students and help them grow. The name of our ministry is "The Vine."


OUR BELIEFS

The Bible

We believe the Bible is inspired by God in its every word, inerrant in its original text, and by Divine preservation is the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.  2 Timothy 3: 15-17

God

We believe that there is only one true and living God, the creator and sustainer of all that is, Who exists as three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.   Genesis 1; 1-2, 26
Jesus
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, existing from all eternity and born into this earth by a virgin, that he lived a sinless life, was crucified , shed His blood and died as a substitute for His people whom He redeemed at the cross, that He was buried and rose from the dead on the third day, that after appearing to His disciples He rose bodily to Heaven where He is the intercessor and advocate for believers, and that He  will someday bodily return to judge the world and set up His Kingdom.  John 1:1-8
Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer at the moment of conversion, that He empowers them to live lives honoring God and that He gives gifts to every Christian for service in the church. We believe the Holy Spirit convicts those who have not believed in Jesus, of sin, of the righteousness of Jesus, and the certainty of judgment.   John 16:7-15
Salvation
We believe that salvation is by faith alone in Jesus Christ and that no one comes to the Father except through Jesus Christ.  We believe when people are, by God’s grace, redeemed that they cannot lose their salvation. We believe that people die only once and that everyone will stand before God; those who have believed in Jesus being given entrance into Heaven and those who have not believed being condemned and consigned to Hell.  Romans 3:23; 5:8
The Church
We believe the local church is intended by God to be the primary place of worship, training, care, and evangelistic activity for every believer and, therefore, it is God’s will for every believer to be a member of a local church. We believe that the local church is comprised of people who have believed in Jesus and been baptized, who have joined together as a family under the leadership of God. We believe every church is an autonomous body of believers which may, under the leadership of God, choose to associate with other churches for common mission.  Ephesians 1:22-23
Baptism
We believe baptism is an act of obedience and testimony by people who have consciously received Jesus Christ as Savior. We believe that baptism is not necessary for salvation, but rather a significant act of public identification with Jesus, an initiation into the visible church, and the first step of Christian growth. It is the New Testament means of making a public profession of faith. We believe the scriptural mode for baptism is immersion.   Romans 6:3-4
The Lord’s Supper
We believe the Lord’s Supper is given to the local church by Jesus Christ our Savior as an opportunity of remembrance, examination, and celebration of His redemptive work. We believe this supper can be taken with meaning only by believers in Jesus. And we believe the elements of the Lord’s Supper to be symbolic of Jesus’ body and blood and that the Lord’s Supper does not confer grace or further salvation.  1 Corinthians 11:23-29
Marriage and Family
We believe the family is the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, and adoption. We believe that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a covenant of commitment designed to last a lifetime, made before God and recognized by the state. We believe that the purpose of marriage is to express the relationship between Christ and His church, to provide the God-ordained context for sexual intimacy and marital companionship, to establish a home into which new life can be born or adopted and nurtured, and therefore the family is the foundational block of society.   Genesis 2:24,
End Times
We believe in the imminent, bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ who will be visible to all people of the earth, and glorious. At His second coming, the Lord will establish His kingdom, resurrect the righteous saved to eternal joy in Heaven, and the wicked host to judgment and endless suffering in Hell.  1 Thessalonians 4:13; 5:1-11
