THE LOVE OF CHRIST

At Andice Baptist Church, it is our mission to help everyone come to know & grow in the Love of Jesus. Our goal is to help you disciple your family and others, and lead them to Christ by being a living example of loving God to a world that is watching.
 

OUR FELLOWSHIP HOME

IGNITE THE FIRE

We pursue our mission with enthusiasm and excitement. Our core values fuel our passion, through Christ-like behavior, centering ourselves on the Word of God, Biblical Leadership, with Doctrinal and Operational Integrity.
 

WE DO OUTREACH

As a tenet of our Discipleship strategy, we seek to share the message of the Gospel to those within our community and abroad. To that end, we have established several programs to help those in need and to teach those looking for Christ.

Take a minute to look around and explore how you can connect with God, grow in a community and make a difference by serving others at Andice Baptist Church.

I’m Pastor Derrick Norris. Thanks for taking a couple minutes to check out our web site, especially the stories of the people that make up our wonderful church family. Andice Baptist Church isn’t a building; it’s a group of people who have devoted themselves to the ideal of letting God transform them. It really is amazing what can happen when all sorts of different people come together with just one thing in common: Jesus.

My wife, Rebecca, and I are here because we love God and we love people. We love watching God change people’s lives. At Andice Baptist Church we are intentional about making disciples and helping you grow so you can disciple your family and others. We hope to see you at church sometime soon. If you have any questions drop me a note.

God Bless you!

INTRODUCTION TO LIFE GROUPS

 

When we say "Life Groups", we believe change happens best through authentic relationships, because we know God created us to live in community with others. We do that through Bible Study and Small Groups of families who do life together.
 

  1. 1. Bible Study happens every Sunday morning at 9:45 AM.
  2. 2. Small Groups meet at different times and locations.

 
It is only then that we can experience the full life He intends for us.
 

HE USES OTHER PEOPLE TO GROW US, AND HE USES US TO GROW OTHER PEOPLE.

God Bless you!

Titus 2: Women's Ministry

 

“Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.”

– Titus 2: 3-5

We seek to glorify God by providing Bible studies and activities that encourage women to know and love Jesus, their families and each other while promoting fellowship and spiritual growth. In this ministry we will focus on:

  • * Spiritual Growth
  • * Serving Others
  • * Sincere Relationships

Family Ministry

 
Family ministry is one of the greatest opportunities we have to teach kids, develop leaders, and equip parents in order to train up and disciple the next generation. When we embrace the unique possibility of an intentionally designed effort to invest in the next generation, we embrace the possibility of a ministry that won’t just change a kid or a home but that can actually change a community and reach the world.

At Andice Baptist Church, we focus on discipleship at every level of the family: kids, parents and leaders, helping each member grow stronger in their knowledge and love of Jesus Christ, with programs designed to give you the tools necessary to share the Gospel of Christ. Ask our leadership team for more information or how to get involved!

  • We strive to glorify and exalt Christ

THANK YOU FOR FINDING YOUR PLACE FOR MINISTRY AT ABC

Children's Ministry

 
Children are important to us here at Andice! Our goal is to provide a safe, fun environment, where kids can learn about who God is and what He’s done for them. We have a variety of programs in which kids can get involved. At our Sunday morning Bible Studies (9:45am), kids learn stories from the Bible geared for their age group. We re-enforce these messages during the worship service for those in childcare (ages 4 and under).

We know that family and parental influence are important in a child’s life, so we aim to have at least four events a year that families can attend together, ranging from just good old-fashioned fellowship to learning and serving together. Check out our upcoming events page to find out what we have coming up!
