Will I be singled out as a guest?
As you enter the building, you will be provided with a Sunday bulletin and during the service we ask you to complete a registration card so that we may get to know you better, but you will not be asked to stand or speak during the service. We do, however, invite you to linger and meet some of our members after the service.
Will I be expected to give money?
The ministries of PBC are supported by the financial contributions of its members.
May I participate during Communion?
PBC strongly believes that anyone who knows Jesus Christ as their Savior is welcome to participate in the Lord’s Supper (communion).
Do you provide childcare during the service?
Childcare is provided in a safe, well-tended area for infants and children who are three years of age or younger. Children ages four and five may attend Little Big Church during the worship service. Each parent is given a silent pager, which is returned when the parent picks up their child following the worship service.
How accessible is the building for physically challenged people?
What does your church believe?
While no Baptist can speak for another, the members of Pintlala Baptist Church are committed to sharing the good news of salvation by grace. We believe that the Christian life begins, not with rules, but with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The church strives to sustain a culture and atmosphere supported by historic, and often endangered, Baptist principles such as freedom of the soul, Bible, church, and religion.
