Where We Meet

Our Location

226 Goshen Rd, Rincon, GA 31326, United States

Self-awareness is often hard to come by, but we think it’s important. One of the things about our church that we are aware of is that our campus can be confusing to new-comers. So, we’ve attached this picture so that you know where to go. Sunday School is held in the two-story building (pictured on the bottom left); we meet for worship in the smaller building (pictured on the top left next to the soccer field; its the one with the pin). We hope this has been a helpful guide and introduction to our campus and look forward to seeing you when you visit!

Service Time

Worship Sunday 10:30 am

Sunday School | 9:30 am

2nd Sunday Evening | 5:00 pm

We believe our weekly worship gathering on the Lord’s Day is the most important time of the entire week for the whole family. Our worship service is approximately 90 minutes in length.

We are committed to the simple, yet powerful means that God has provided and called us to in our worship that we might experience true communion with Him. Our worship services include singing songs, hymns, and psalms, offering prayers, Scripture readings, expository preaching, giving, and the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

Order of Service

Redeemer Baptist Church

Liturgy

A Church’s liturgy is simply its order of service. Every church on the planet has a liturgy. Some are planned out and very structured; others are not as planned out. At RBC, we have a pretty straightforward order of service that doesn’t change much from week to week; it all revolves around God’s word, which is central to our faith. What follows is a brief description of each element in our weekly worship service.

Call to Worship

After the prelude, one of the pastors will stand and welcome the congregation. Then, on behalf of God and his Son, by his Spirit, we are invited into worship together. This call to worship occurs either through a simple Scripture reading or a responsive reading.

Singing Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs

God’s people have always been a singing people. In fact, the first human words ever recorded in the Bible are a song of praise (Genesis 2:25).

The Apostle Paul instructs Christians to teach and admonish one another by singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, making melody in our hearts to the Lord (Col. 3:16). And that’s what we do when we gather together each Lord’s Day, we sing.

We sing 4-5 songs each week; we want our singing to express the full breadth of Christian theology and experience. This means that some songs are fast, and some are slow. Some songs are short, and some are long. Some songs are in a major key, some are in a minor key. Some songs express joy and gladness, while others admit pain and sorrow. Some are old, and some are new. And in all of this, they are all theologically rich, expressing the truth of Scripture.

Confession of Sin

An elder will offer a public prayer of confession as we acknowledge together before God that we are broken sinners in need of his grace. During this time, we will also hold a few moments of silence to privately confess our sins to God. After the confession of sin, then comes the assurance of pardon, which is a public reminder from Scripture of the forgiveness God grants to all who place their faith in Jesus.

Baptism

On the last Sunday of each month, we are glad to baptize new believers as they profess faith in the Lord Jesus and publicly declare allegiance to him.

Affirmation of Faith

Once a month, we also take some time to corporately affirm our faith together. This is usually done by reciting either the Apostle’s Creed or the Nicene Creed. When we do this, we proclaim to our children and to a watching world what are the most basic fundamental truths of the Christian faith. And we remind ourselves that we are united with other believers throughout the world and throughout history. We then sing the doxology together.

Scripture Reading

Paul commands Timothy that Scripture should be read publicly (1 Timothy 4:13), so each week, we turn our hearts to the Word of our God as it is read. Here a portion of Scripture (usually working consecutively through a book of the Bible) is simply read, and there is no commentary made. God’s word is simply read and allowed to speak for itself.

Pastoral Prayer

The preaching pastor will offer a pastoral prayer for the needs of the congregation, other churches, and missionaries around the world. He will also seek God’s blessing upon the preaching and hearing of God’s word that morning.

Sermon

In our preaching, we typically preach through whole books of the Bible, verse-by-verse. We do occasionally preach topical sermons or series, but even then, the expectation–every week–is that the sermon is preached from one main text and that the main point of the text is the main point of the sermon.

The Lord’s Table

In many ways, this is the culmination of our worship each Lord’s Day. After we have heard God’s word proclaimed, we are welcomed each week to the Lord’s Table in holy communion with him and one another. Jesus instituted the Supper on the night before his crucifixion, and we proclaim his death whenever we share in the meal together and enjoin a real and present communion with him and with one another. We are declaring Jesus to be the Lord, Savior, and greatest Treasure of our lives.

Benediction

We are commissioned and sent back out into the world, living on mission for Jesus and his kingdom through a last good word of God’s blessing upon us from sacred scripture.

For The Kids

We are a family of faith, which means that when gather on Sunday, we gather as a family. That means we fight the urge to segregate and separate everyone according to musical preference, gender, favorite color, or age! Children are noisy, and they move (they never stop moving!) So, we are okay with a little noise in the service. Bring your children with you to the corporate gathering. We welcome them!

We do have nurseries for our very young children (babies/toddlers) as well as a Nursing Mother’s Room for moms to take care of fussy or hungry little ones, where they can see a live video feed of the service in privacy.

We also offer Sunday School classes for our children at 9:30 am each Lord’s Day (3 years old all the way to 12th grade). There they will be taught from open Bibles, learn a catechism, and enjoy friendship with one another.

Fellowship Meals

“For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer” (1 Timothy 4:4-5).

God made a good world and filled that world with delicious food for his people to enjoy, and for them to enjoy together. On the last Sunday of each month, we stick around after the service to have lunch together. This is a simple time when families bring food to share with others.

There’s no agenda, no planned conversation topics–just a good time to break bread together and enjoy one another’s company.

Sunday evening service

We meet together on the 2nd Sunday of each month for an evening service from 5-6PM in the 300 Building for a time of prayer, Scripture reading, exhortation, and worship through song.

This time proves to be a very fruitful and spiritually refreshing service as we gather together and reflect on the various attributes of God with one another as we start a new week.

Many comment that this is a sweet time of relaxed fellowship as well.

Giving

The people of Redeemer Baptist Church are committed to prizing Jesus Christ above all things and one of the ways we demonstrate our love to him is through a commitment to a generosity that is sacrificial, joyful, and intentional. Our generosity ultimately extends to the whole of our lives, and to be sure, that includes our money. After all, The Lord Jesus said that where our treasure is, there our hearts will be also (Matthew 6:21).

At RBC, we don’t have a specific time set aside during our corporate worship gathering dedicated to financial giving, but we do have boxes near the doors where checks or cash can be placed as you enter (or exit) the building, as well as an option for online giving so that we may each, “give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7). Ultimately, our generosity must be founded upon God’s, and God’s generosity is astounding. “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8).
