MINISTRIES OF LBC
The heart of Liberty Baptist Church is serving. Through the many different ministries of our church there is a place for you to serve and be involved! Find the perfect place for your family.
Legacy Builders (Adults 50+)
Our Legacy Builders group meets throughout the year for activities and fellowship that have included cookouts, game nights, conferences, and sight seeing trips to name a few. You'll enjoy finding other believers to spend quality time with.
Firm Foundations (Adults 20s-40s)
The opportunity for fellowship with others in your age group is vital. From BBQ's to volleyball to ice cream socials there will be something you can find to involve yourself with. There are also several Bible Conferences and annual retreats offered each year.
Students are able to interact through frequent activities such as, laser tag, mini golf, go karts, bowling, campfires, movie nights, and game nights. It's important for our students to be able to develop friendships with others like them and to deepen their walk with Christ because of it.
We have a Bible class every Sunday at 10a for students in 7th grade and up that will challenge them to become the next generation of Godly leaders. Students at LBC will have the opportunity to participate in our music ministry, assist with children's classes, mission trips, summer camps, retreats, and youth conferences with like-minded believers across the region.
0-3 • at every service we provide a safe and clean nursery for the little ones up to 3 years that is overseen by our pastor's wife, Mrs. Karen. She has worked with children for more than 30 years and loves each child as if it were her own! You'll feel confident your little people are in good hands and will learn about Jesus on their level and will allow you to be able to focus on the service without any distrations.
4 years-6th grade • For children four years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes at 10a. During the main service at 11a we offer an exciting Children's Church for the kids that will keep their attention, while teaching them the Word of God in a way that will benefit them and help them to develop a Christ-like character at an age!
During the school year, on Wednesdays at 6:30pm, we offer Master Club for children four years old through sixth grade. Master Club exists to teach children, ages 4-12, to “Believe on God’s Son, Obey God’s Holy Word, and Serve in God’s House.” Master Club enjoys Bible study using the Bible, workbooks, and memorization, plus a learning/game time, special missionary projects, and fun events such as “Everyone’s Birthday Party,” “Pine Car Derby,” and “Sailboat Regatta.” Each child can purchase a vest and earn badges for all their accomplishments.
Elementary-aged children will enjoy our programs tailored for their age groups. The children also enjoy activities and outings during the year such as, zoo trips, summer camps, Family Crusades, and more!
LBC believes in reaching our entire community for Christ! This ministry is designed to provide transportation to children, teens, and adults who would not otherwise be able to come to church. The bus ministry has been called the greatest evangelistic tool in the history of the local church. Millions upon millions of people have come to church, heard the Gospel preached, and had their lives forever changed since the introduction of the bus ministry. We offer transportation to church each Sunday morning and Wednesday evening on our church van. Many children don't have the opportunity to attend church and we believe Jesus would have us to minister to as many as possible. You can participate in this ministry by joining us on Saturdays at 10a as we reach out to many families around Searcy. We thank God for the souls we have seen saved due to this ministry. If you would like transportation for you or your children, contact us.
Faith Bible Institute
Faith Bible Institue (FBI) is a Bible college course for every Christian! Students will study chronologically through the ENTIRE BIBLE systematically through every major doctrine. Yet, basic classes meet only one evening each week.
FBI combines solid Bible teaching with an interactive DVD video format utilizing student workbooks, charts, 3D maps and images to produce a unique and exciting learning experience. Join the 40,000 students who have been trained through Faith Bible Institute.
We meet on Mondays at 6:00p and the class lasts about 3 hours. For more information, contact our class director, Denny Biard. Courses are on a college freshman & sophomore level. A High School diploma is not required to enroll. Current High School (9th-12th) Students may enroll and those with advanced degrees may also enroll.
We also offer summer elective courses that last from 1-4 weeks and deal with topics such as: prophecy, creation vs evolution, angels, and more.
We have several folks in the church who volunteer their time throughout the year to mow our property, clean the church, and maintain the grounds. If working outdoors or cleaning is your thing then get involved with this important ministry! We love and appreciate everyone who helps to make our facility look nice and keep it clean.
Through the media ministry of LBC we are able to reach into the lives of people across the globe. Every service is available on our livestream page for those unable to attend and many of our sermons are available for download on our YouTube page, iTunes podcast, or SermonAudio. Since launching our media ministry in 2013, we have been able to reach more than 15,000 people and have seen downloads in all 50 states and more than 40 countries. You can help this ministry by praying, giving, and serving! Contact us to learn more.
As we work to reach and evangelize Searcy, we also have a plan for world-wide evangelism. We have commissioned 30+ missionary projects throughout the world to plant churches, save the soul, feed the poor, and care for the orphaned. We support these projects monthly through our Faith Promise Missions fund.
All gifts are taken into our missions account and 100% of the money is given to missions in the United States and around the world. The benefit of this type of missions program is that we have been privileged to meet all our missionaries with their families and have them visit and preach in our church. We receive prayer letters from each missionary on a regular basis, updating us on their works and needs. Often these letters are read during our Wednesday night service.
God has blessed us with an abundance of gifted singers and musicians. At LBC you'll hear a variety of styles of musical selections by soloists, duets, trios, ensembles, children's choir, teen ensembles, family choir, and instrumentals. Our congregation sings hymns, choruses, and scripture songs that are written by some of the most well known writers from years past to the present such as, Fannie Crosby, Isaac Watts, John Newton, Phillip Bliss, Ira Stanphill, Dottie Rambo, Mosie Lister, Dennis Stremming, Byron Foxx, Ron Hamilton, and the list goes on.
Outreach & Visitation Ministry
Sharing the Gospel message is the ultimate goal we have. LBC strives to obey the Great Commission by witnessing to the lost around us. We meet on Thursdays at 6p and Saturdays at 10a and reach out into our community through our visitation program. Each week we make contact with those who have visited our church and knock on new doors to invite them to worship with us and to share the love of Christ with them. We also make visits to the sick and shut-ins, allowing us to pray with them and offer encouragement.
