Courtland Baptist Church
Who is Jesus Christ?
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
We are a local community of disciples of Jesus Christ who believe in the Bible and articulate it’s doctrines in the traditional confessions of the Christian faith and who are associated with like-minded southern baptists here in Southampton County, Virginia where our mission is to grow together in Christ as we make him known through the gospel to lost and hurting people.
Our mission is to grow together in the Spirit and teachings of Jesus Christ, and make disciples of the all nations, beginning here in Southampton County, Virginia.
Our vision is to disciple individuals into faithful Christian living in the church, and to become a church-planting and revitalizing community that helps fill our region with many strong, godly and disciple-making churches, so that Christ will be known and God be glorified in the many people who are born again of the Spirit.
