What to Expect
When you enter the doors of Cleveland Road Baptist Church for the first time on a Sunday morning, what can you expect as a newcomer?
First, expect to be warmly welcomed and feel right at home. One of the benefits of a smaller church is that no one gets overlooked in the hustle and bustle; in other words, you are never just “one of the crowd.” Many first-time visitors have, in fact, noted the warm, relaxed, and loving atmosphere to be one of Cleveland Road’s most defining characteristics. All are welcomed in our church, and you can expect to experience this from the very beginning.
Besides the general feel of the church, however, perhaps you are curious—and rightly so—about what the typical worship service is like on Sunday. Cleveland Road is an evangelical, Southern Baptist church. As such, we prioritize the glory of God, the Son of God, the gospel of God, the Word of God, and the building up of God’s church through various biblical means such as prayer, corporate worship, the observance of the two church ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, Scripture reading, and expositional preaching. This means, in practice, that you should expect everything we think, say, and do in worship to revolve around God, magnify Christ, display the gospel, and be rooted in the Bible. It should also be mentioned that our worship style consists primarily of singing traditional hymns, and the preaching of the Word takes center stage given the biblical precedence and importance of this ministry for the body of Christ, the church.
To conclude this brief introduction, here is a quick word about our beautiful church facility and its resources. Cleveland Road offers handicap accessible parking and restrooms. We also provide a nursery during the entire Sunday service for children ages four and under, but feel free to keep your children with you for worship if you so choose. A playground is available for the children to play on too when the weather is nice. In addition, our church has a fellowship hall that is equipped with a commercial kitchen and table tennis table which are perfect for holding church get-togethers or simply hanging out in smaller groups. And, finally, a resource shelf, stocked with a wide assortment of free Christian literature, is available for your perusal and use in the back of the church sanctuary.
It is our prayer and desire to see you one Sunday morning in the near future. If you do make that decision to enter into the doors of Cleveland Road Baptist Church for the first time, be prepared to experience a church family who believes and lives out Jesus Christ’s commandment to love God and others (Matthew 22:36-40). God Bless!
