Welcome To Our Web Site...
Thank you for visiting our web site. We invite you to look around and then plan to visit one of our services. “Shawnee Bible Church, under the Holy Spirit’s direction, exists to worship God, love one another, and share Christ in our spheres of influence, bringing those who know Christ to maturity and fruitfulness.” That is our Purpose Statement, but you need to see how that is lived out to really appreciate the body of Christ that gathers here.
Let me give you a brief thumbnail sketch, using our name, to better explain who we are. First, we are a gathering of Christians that meet in Shawnee, Kansas. That may be obvious. However, we choose to be in Shawnee, in the same neighborhood, for the past forty years. We have made a commitment to serve in this community. Secondly, our main Text is the Bible. We are expositional in our teaching. That means we don’t jump from topic to topic. We study through a book of the Bible to find what God is teaching us about His will. And finally, we are a local church. We are independent and autonomous, but we are not without accountability. We belong to a fellowship of like minded churches (see ifca.org). We support world missions. We work with other ministries through short term mission trips. And we have people from various places in the greater Kansas City metro that gather here for worship and service. But we believe deeply that God has ordained the local church to fulfill the command to make disciples. So if you are looking for a place to serve others, worship God, and grow spiritually then consider checking us out in person.
