TO LEAD PEOPLE TO BECOME FULLY DEVOTED FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST.
The vision of BONLEE BAPTIST is simple: to keep the Gospel central in everything. In the words of the Apostle Paul, we believe that the Gospel is of “first importance.” We should constantly reflect on it, and base our lives and ministries around it.
For I delivered to you as of first importance
what I also received: that Christ died for our sins
in accordance with the Scriptures,
that he was buried,
that he was raised on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
1 Cor. 15:3-4
Our message is clear and simple. For we believe that the hope for CHATHAM COUNTY and the nations is the Gospel. We believe that it is the “power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes.” We want to saturate the city and the world with the good news by proclaiming it with clarity and love, and by practicing good deeds that glorify Jesus. We desire to be a blessing to the city and to the nations with our actions and our words.
We believe this emphasis on the simplicity and power of the Gospel will also help us be unified. We can agree to disagree over matters that are not of first importance. But on the Gospel, we will be together. We refuse to argue over trivial matters because of the urgency of getting the Gospel to the nations.
