Since Christ is the head of the church, we must make His priorities our priorities. We find His priorities in two key passages of Scripture.
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord they God with all they heart, and with all they soul, and with all they mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” -Matthew 22:37-40
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” -Matthew 28:19-20
The purpose of Old Fields Baptist Church is to provide regular opportunities for public worship, to sustain the ordinances, doctrine, and ethics set forth in the New Testament for the church of our Lord Jesus Christ; to nurture its members through a program of Christian education; to channel its offerings to the support of the objectives of the Redeemer’s Kingdom, and to preach and propagate among all people the gospel of the revelation of God through Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
