Connect with Christ and connect with each other.
CONTACT CHURCH OFFICE

WOMEN’S MINISTRY

Our vision is to help organize and facilitate a ministry in which women are able to connect to Christ and each other. We have a passion for women to know for themselves that God is enough and in drinking fully of His love we are all freed up to grow in Christ, serve our church body and reach out to minister to our families and our community.

Our hope is that women who come into contact with the family of Bonita Valley Baptist Church will be encouraged to grow in Christ and to either begin or continue to understand the necessity of being connected to a Bible-Believing church.

Relationships do not always happen easily. As a new comer it can be a daunting task to try to connect and assimilate into a church family and feel like you belong. As a Women’s Ministry Board, we would be facilitating this”connection”. With time, sincere effort and giving our very best, we would provide opportunities for women to grow by connecting to Christ and each other. God has revealed His love to us through His Son, and it is our passion to share that love through genuine care and concern for others.

GOALS:

1. Teach women a Biblical perspective of their covenantal relationship with Christ, their family, the church and their community.

2. Exhort women to fulfill and understand their “helper” design.

3. Teach women to nurture and care for one another, and to glorify God by obeying the Titus mandate (Titus   2:1-5).

4. Teach and provide opportunities for women to be instruments of compassion
(Micah 6:8).

5. Equip and provide opportunities for women in roles of service within the church under the headship of the Elders.

These goals can be accomplished through:
Providing opportunities for women to come together for prayer, women specific and church wide social events, community service, and support of other BVBC ministries.

OUTREACH

Gospel centered love.
CONTACT CHURCH OFFICE

OUTREACH MINISTRY

Gospel-centered love for our neighbor is practical, tangible help for our neighbors, but always with the realization that their deepest need is Christ, and therefore our highest expression of love for them is to share the gospel.

Gospel-centered love means caring for our neighbors however we can, no strings attached. Providing food, a listening ear, mowing lawns and babysitting, meeting needs however we can. But in everything we do we want to share the gospel. We will love and serve them if they never believe in Christ, but we’ll never believe that just acting in love is a substitute for explaining the message of the gospel.

What does the outreach team do?

    • Plan intentional outreach projects or events, intentional acts of kindness,
      communication with the Saints, and friendship events.
    • Model how to lead a person to Christ, visitations, door-to-door, Angel
      Tree, outreach Bible study
    • Equip the Saints to lead others to Christ through hand gospel training,
      personal evangelism, outreach Bible study and refute the cults.

For more information contact the church office.
