How should I dress?
There’s no dress code at Beckwith Baptist Church. Our ministry leaders and church family members often wear more traditional “Sunday Dress”, but our aim is that you would feel welcome as our guest!
What kind of music should I expect to find?
We love music that honors and glorifies God and inspires the worshipper! In our worship service, you will notice treasured, traditional hymns that you may be familiar with, along with a blend of more modern, sacred music. Whether it is congregational singing, soloists or ensembles, you are sure to be encouraged by the uplifting worship music here at Beckwith.
Do you provide a nursery?
Yes, your children (infants and toddlers) will be lovingly cared for in an inviting, nicely furnished nursery by our friendly, professional nursery staff.
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
We want our service to be a gift to the Lord (and to you)! We hope you will find in this place a welcoming, sweet spirit, truth plainly taught from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. As our guest, please don’t feel obligated to participate in the offering.

What We Believe
For our full statement of faith, you can simply request one when you visit. But below is a highlight of some of our core beliefs as a local church.
We Believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God in all of its parts, and without error. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)
We Believe there is one true God, the perfect and infinite Maker and Ruler of all creation. He is the first Person of the Trinity (1 Cor 8:6, Rev 4:11)
We Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the 2nd Person of the Trinity, the Eternal Word made flesh, and the only begotten Son of God. He lived a sinless life, and shed His sinless blood on Calvary for the sins of the whole world. (John 1:1, Isaiah 7:14)
We Believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity. He is the Christian’s great Comforter, as well as convicts the world of sin, judgment, and righteousness (John 16:8, 14:16)
We Believe that God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit created the universe and everything in it in six, 24 hour days, just as the Genesis account plainly records. (Gen 1, 2, Col:16-17)
We Believe that Jesus Christ is returning to this earth, just as He said, and will establish His millennial reign. Further, His return is always imminent. (Matt 24:44, Rev 20:1-6)
We Believe that man was originally created in the image of God, but Adam’s sin in the garden has forced a separation between a Holy God and sinful man. Further, that Adam’s sin has been passed along to all men, for both by nature and by choice, all are sinners. (Rom 3:23, 5: 12-21)
We Believe that salvation is by grace through faith and is a free gift of God. Salvation is found only in the person and finished work of Christ, and cannot be procured or otherwise merited by any other means or work of man. Further, we hold that God desires for all mankind to enter into His salvation through a personal relationship with Christ. (Eph 2:8-9, Rom 6:23, 2 Peter 3:9)
We Believe that the local church is comprised of of immersed believers that have been born again by the Spirit of God. Further, we hold that every church member has been saved to serve, and should diligently seek the Lord’s will to do just that in a local church setting. (Col 1:18, Acts 2:41-42)
