Culbertson Baptist Church

We​ believe that Jesus Christ is the ultimate of who God is and what it means to be human as Jesus is both fully God and fully human. As we live out our faith, we look to Jesus as an example of how we relate to each other. Through Jesus' gift of grace and mercy, we welcome people as they are and invite them to fully participate in the life of our congregation. Just as we have been transformed by God's love, we invite others to embrace God's love and become transformed into a life that honors God and demonstrates God's kingdom on earth.

 

We seek to live out this truth in a variety of ways, but we want to share one practical example of this truth. At Culbertson Baptist, we fully embrace women in all areas of ministry and leadership. We have women deacons and welcome women to preach from our pulpit. While our current pastor is male, we also affirm that God calls females to the work of pastor and celebrate God's pastoral calling to all people, both male and female.

"O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right,
to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God." - Micah 6:8, New Living Translation
