What to Expect when Visiting


We are delighted to have visitors in any of our services. We want you to feel like an honored guest. Here are a few common questions and answers about visiting Good News Independent Baptist Church that will help you enjoy your first visit:

Will the roof fall in?

Absolutely not. In fact, happy to report, it has been replaced and it’s beautiful. Our church has had several renovations made over the last year, inside and out, come see how good God has been!

What should I wear?

This is probably the most common question. We want you to feel welcome. A specific attire is not required, and our members wear a variety of styles of clothing. We think it makes sense to wear nice, clean, modest clothing to church. As long as you do that, you will not feel out of place.

Do you have a nursery?

Yes. Nursery can be provided during all services for children under 3 years of age.

What are your services like?

Our services are what is commonly called, traditional. The worship music primarily is great hymns of the faith and we have special music from members of the congregation on a weekly basis, however, the primary focus of all of our meetings is the Word of God. Generally, we will have a few hymns, prayer, the choir sings, an offering, special music and then a message from the Bible.

Do visitors have to stand up and say anything?

No, you sure don’t. We will give you a visitor’s card and ask you to drop it in the offering plate so we can have a record of your visit. Pastor will acknowledge your attendance in order to allow our people the opportunity to give you a warm welcome.
