We exist for God’s glory and our joy through
GOSPEL-CENTERED WORSHIP, COMMUNITY,
SERVICE & MULTIPLICATION.

What is the Gospel?

In short, the Gospel is the story of God’s plan to save sinners. Throughout human history, God has been actively involved in revealing Himself as both righteous Judge and gracious Savior. The story of God’s redeeming work may be best understood if we begin with creation and work our way towards Jesus. In fact, it is a good rule of thumb to always be in pursuit of Jesus.

WORSHIP
 
What is Gospel-centered Worship?
 
Worship begins with revelation. The God of the universe makes Himself known through revelation and humanity is made to respond to such a display with adoration, gratitude, humility, praise, celebration, and wonder. Because humans are naturally sinful, an essential aspect of Worship is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Therefore, Gospel-centered Worship includes a human response to the revelation of God as He makes Himself known through Jesus Christ as the Savior of sinners.
Membership-iconCOMMUNITY
 
What is Gospel-centered Community?
 
Community in creation, especially in humanity, reflects the nature of God Himself. God is triune; He is Father, Son, and Spirit. As such, God is communal and relational, and humanity is meant to reflect this essential aspect of God’s own nature. While each Christian has a personal relationship with God, that relationship is neither private nor separate from other Christians. In fact, the Christian journey and its destination are always meant to be understood in the context of community with others.
hands-iconSERVICE
 
What is Gospel-centered Service?
 
Serving others without any expectation of receiving anything in return has been a hallmark of Christian lives over the last several centuries.  Self-sacrifice and costly service was embodied in no one more than Jesus Christ.  God the Son set aside the riches of His glory and took upon Himself the poverty of sinful man in order to rescue sinners from their hopeless condition of slavery to sin and death.  Christians, therefore, serve willingly and cheerfully because they have been served by Jesus Christ.

MULTIPLICATION
 
What is gospel-centered multiplication?
  
Churches were never meant to be holding tanks for Christians. Rather, it is the role of every Christian and every church to make disciples of all peoples (Matt. 28:18-20). Our disciple-making efforts are not limited to FBC Diana. In fact, we understand that every Gospel-centered disciple-making effort across the globe is something to which we are inherently linked. Gospel-centered Multiplication is our effort to multiply disciples and disciple makers across the street and around the world. This includes support for church planting, short-term missions involvement and support, and long-term missions involvement and support.
 

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us…

SERMON PODCAST

ENTRUSTING WITH THE GOSPEL
Most every Christian in America knows that he/she should be both a disciple and a disciple-maker, but very few Christians understand what that means and how important it is. In our age of individualism and personal autonomy, not many people are thinking much about others. The responsibility to invest in others, especially for the sake of spiritual benefit, belongs to every Christian. Because we have received the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we have been entrusted with that good message. And because we have been entrusted with it, we are to hand it along to others as well. Disciple-making disciples - that’s what every faithful Christian is."ENTRUSTING WITH THE GOSPEL ".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | JESUS CHANGES EVERYTHING
    In Southern America today, you’ll likely find many people who think well of Jesus Christ. It seems most people think Jesus stands for socially respectable and admirable things. People will sometimes quote Jesus or cite something He did in order to validate their own ideas about good and right actions. However, the Jesus of popular culture is much safer and more appropriate than the Jesus of the Bible. The biblical Jesus changes everything. He changes what His followers see, what they do, and what they believe. One can hardly have a genuine relationship with Jesus without having their world turned upside-down."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | JESUS CHANGES EVERYTHING".

    COMMUNION SUNDAY | COMMUNION WITH ONE ANOTHER
    For nearly 2,000 years Christians have celebrated, remembered, and proclaimed the person and work of Christ through the ordinance of Communion (or Lord’s Supper). However, it may be that many Christians today are not nearly as familiar with the incredible meaning behind this essential ordinance. In this message, we shall look to a familiar passage that speaks to this subject, and we will focus our attention on the communal feature of Communion. This ordinance was always meant to evoke feelings of unity and mutuality, and we pray for God to form us accordingly."COMMUNION SUNDAY | COMMUNION WITH ONE ANOTHER".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
    In American culture today, Christianity is largely perceived in one of two ways. Some see Christianity as backwards and suppressive; but others see it as casual and stylish. Both have a skewed perspective, and each demonstrates a lack of understanding regarding what Christianity is really all about. God is holy and just; He is gracious and kind. In the person and work of Christ, we may observe the fullness of God’s justice and grace on simultaneous display. In this message, we shall seek to unpack the beauty, the sorrow, and the triumph of the Lamb of God."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD".

    Rethinking the Church : Baptist Distinctives | VALUING LIFE IN A FALLEN WORLD
    Baptists (particularly Southern Baptists) hold several beliefs dear. Among them is the belief that human life is sacred, valuable, and worthy of preservation at every stage. This integral belief, like all Baptist beliefs, comes from the conviction that the Bible demands it. However, Christians (Baptists and otherwise) are sometimes confused about what it should look like to live according to the clear teaching of Scripture. In this message, we will explore the biblical basis and the application of a belief in the sanctity of human life."Rethinking the Church : Baptist Distinctives | VALUING LIFE IN A FALLEN WORLD".

    John : That You May Believe | Grace & Truth Came To Dwell
    The God who has always been has made Himself known throughout human history. Speaking and working, judging and rescuing, He has revealed Himself progressively over time. And yet, there is one focal point of history where God’s glory breaks into the created world as a matchless thunderbolt. Unassuming yet utterly authoritative, humble yet worthy of all honor, selfless yet supremely glorious. As we look at the person of Christ on the pages of holy Scripture, we are able to see God’s grace and truth as He came to take up residence among humanity."John : That You May Believe | Grace & Truth Came To Dwell".

    John : That You May Believe | GOD’S OVERWHELMING LIGHT
    The “light” of God is symbolic of His purity, truth, blessings, and presence. Some people seem to believe that God’s presence may be enjoyed without His purity, or that His blessings may possessed without His truth. The Bible teaches that God’s light is overwhelming. It exposes wickedness, illumines darkness, condemns to death, and produces life. There is no one who is able to escape God’s light, but some receive it with humble gladness. Those who are the children of God are born from Him, as miraculous glimmers from His spectacular brilliance."John : That You May Believe | GOD’S OVERWHELMING LIGHT".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE
    Series: Advent
    Who is Jesus Christ? And, why is this question so important? Well, one may consider questions like these less than critical, but the Gospel of John places them at the center of everything. There is much to be learned from the Gospel of John, but the writers major point is worth noting. Jesus Christ is presented as equal with God and yet distinct from the Father. Jesus is the giver of life and the creator of everything; and He is also subordinate to the Father as well as sent from Him. The opening verses of John’s Gospel are spectacular in their description of this unique man, Jesus Christ, who is the divine Savior of sinners.

    Advent : Candlelight Service December 25, 2016
    Series: Advent
    400 years had passed since Malachi spoke the word of the Lord, saying, “I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the LORD arrives. His preaching will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers” (Malachi 4:5-6). Those who believed the promise of God were holding on to something that seemed long forgotten by nearly everyone. Still, some anticipated the arrival of a Spirit-filled spokesman, who would prepare the people for the coming of the Lord...
