Mission & Values

The Mission of Theresa Baptist Church is to GLORIFY God through GROWING Disciples who GO with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • GLORIFY: To glorify God means that we tell the truth about Him through our lives. Glorifying God means enhancing His reputation—it means making Him look good.  At TBC, our goal is to glorify God in everything we say and everything we do! (1 Cor. 10:31).
  • GROW: In Mt. 28:19-20, Jesus commands us to make disciples of all peoples, teaching them to obey everything He commanded. A disciple is one who learns Jesus Christ and follows Jesus in their lives. So, when we say we exist to grow disciples, we mean that we exist to be serious about following Jesus, teaching, and leading others to do the same. 
  • GO: In Acts 1:8, Jesus tells the church that we will be His witnesses locally and around the whole world. It will be through the work of the Church that the Good News of Jesus spreads far and wide. We take that job seriously. We exist to get the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world! The Church was created for that mission.

TBC Membership Values 

1 - Weekly Corporate Worship (Heb. 10:25)

  • As members of the Lord’s Church, we gather weekly on the Lord’s Day for corporate worship through Word, prayer, and song. Members are, therefore, expected to regularly join with the saints for worship.

2 - Personal Discipleship (Mt. 28:19-20; 1 Cor. 11:1; Eph. 4:12; Col. 3:16-17)

  • We value the Lord’s command to grow in our knowledge and understanding of His Word and the Christian life, and we seek to practice this Sunday school, in small groups. Bible study, and personal devotion. 

3 - Private and Public Holiness (1 Pt. 1:16)

  • Through the transformation of our Lord’s Gospel, we recognize that His Spirit brings new life from heaven (Jn. 3:1-15). And we also recognize that our Lord calls us to lives of holiness, both in public and private.

4 - Submission to Pastoral Oversight (Heb. 13:17)

  • As a member of the Lord’s Church, you have been placed under the watch care of qualified Elders. Members are thus expected to honor, follow, and submit to biblical Elder leadership.

5 - Support and Giving (2 Cor. 9:6-7; 1 Tim. 5)

  • The Lord calls His people to support the work of the local Church through the regular giving of tithes and by joining in the work (Eph. 4:12). Members should eagerly support the work and mission of the Church through regular giving and serving in the ministries of the Church.
