Does Your Church Have A Website?

A few weeks ago a pastor in our association was pleased to see a visiting couple enter the sanctuary moments before the sermon began. He was a little surprised when the couple moved from their seats at the end of the service in response to the invitation. He was shocked by their request to join the church during their very first visit. Things began to make a little more sense later when he discovered that the couple had become well acquainted with the church via internet. For several months prior to their visit they had been logging on and listening to sermons via the church website. Thanks to a well designed and maintained website and a series of well preached sermons, this couple knew on their very first visit that Barfield Baptist was the church for them.

The two most neglected things in many Baptist Churches today are the church organ and the church website.  In today's world it is probably more important to hire a website designer than an organ player.  Yes, it grieves me somewhat to say that, but, that is just the way it is.

Pastors, it is time to take a look at your webpage. If you are still advertising last year's Christmas program, it is probably time to update your website. Believe it or not, most people will check you out on the internet before their first visit.

Midland Baptist Church

Midland Baptist Church provides a wonderful ministry to the people of Rutherford Co. through their Journey of Hope Ministry. The Concord Baptist Association was able to assist this missions project with a grant from the Missions Ministry Assistance Fund.
