College Street is a congregation of Bible-loving, people-loving, Jesus-loving Christians who are just doing their best to follow after Jesus and to encourage one another along the way. We cling to Jesus. It is only through his powerful death on the cross in our place that we now live. We praise God the Father whose architectural skills shine through the amazing blueprint of salvation that even before the foundation of the world He ordained that His Son would save us! We now live by the power of the Holy Spirit who works within us to make us more and more like our Savior.
Being a member of this church means more than mere pew-sitting, though we encourage any and everyone to do their fair share of it if they want to get a taste of what the gospel is all about. No, membership at CSBC is so much more. It’s about discipling one another, it’s about loving one another with a laying-down-your-life-for-the-brothers mentality, and it’s about tough, yet tender, love. Are we perfect at it? No way! But were the churches at Ephesus, Philippi, or Corinth? Every church, with all of its imperfections, wrinkles, and spots, is dazzlingly beautiful in the eyes of the bridegroom Jesus Christ who is in the process of purifying his Church with the washing of the water and the Word. There is hope for us yet!
As a Southern Baptist church, we align ourselves with a denomination that believes each church is self-determining and self-governing. However, we also recognize the amazing interconnectedness of the churches in the New Testament and throughout church history. It is our pleasure and joy to associate with some amazing churches through the SBC and our local Reedy River Baptist Association for the purpose of fellowship and the advancement of King Jesus’ dominion in this world.
