We meet several times throughout the week. Adult Bible Studies take place at 9:15 AM on Sundays, followed by a morning worship service from 10:00 to 11:00 AM. Our evening services are at 6:00 PM. We presently do not have a midweek service.
For all services, a nursery is provided for children under the age of 4.
Q: What do You Believe?
We are a Christ-centered church, making Him the center of all that we do. Our main focus is to proclaim the Gospel, the Good News, of Jesus Christ. This is the forefront of our ministry.
We hold to the infallibility of Scripture; that the Old and New Testament were supernaturally inspired by God. The Scriptures are Truth. They are God's Word, without error or reproach and that they are the final authority for faith and life. Because of this, we hold to the fundamentals of Biblical Christianity and the Baptist Distinctives. We believe the King James Version of the Bible is God's preserved Word for the English-speaking people.
We believe in a local, independent church. Bloomington Baptist Church is controlled by no outside organization or presbytery.
We believe in unity and fellowship. The Bible clearly teaches that the local church is to be a place of Christian love and and harmony. We strive to maintain this atmosphere while standing for the truths of God's Word without compromise.
