Fulfilling the Great Commission
What is the purpose of the Church if not to proclaim the Gospel both near and far? We here at Courtland Baptist Church believe that the Great Commission of our Lord in Matthew 28, is the marching orders of His church until he returns. We believe is it the call of every Christian to make the gospel known, wherever it is that God calls them to serve and proclaim. Sometimes that call is near, and sometimes that call is far. To aid us in fulfilling the mission, we have partnered with several groups to aid in the global missions initiative and to see Christ glorified around the world!
We here at Courtland Baptist Church have partnered with the Southern Baptist Convention of Virginia. We believe this partnership benefits us and others in the denomination as we work together to reach our communities and the whole world.
Here is an excerpt from the SBCVA’s website..
“The SBC of Virginia is a fellowship of more than 740 local churches from across the Commonwealth of Virginia. We seek to have a global impact through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
