Our Purpose

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.

"...until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ."

From our Pastor

Shawnee Bible Church is an independent Bible church in Kansas City. Several important facts are evident in our name. We are located in Shawnee, Kansas; and our emphasis is on Bible teaching. We believe the Bible to be the Word of God and that God has communicated His perfect will to man through the Bible. We are a local church. We believe God has called the local church to equip Christians so they can grow spiritually and share their faith in Jesus Christ.

What is not evident in our name is what a caring, loving family you will find at Shawnee Bible Church. We encourage and counsel one another, pray for one another, and serve one another. As God gives us opportunity we reach beyond the four walls of the building where we meet to express the same love and concern for those who are not involved with our church. If you are looking for a loving church that is strong in Bible teaching, come visit us in person. We’d love to meet you!

Childcare (for infant through four years old) is provided in our safe and clean nursery during our Sunday morning Bible class hour at 9:30 a.m. as well as during our worship service at 10:45 a.m.


We believe in the verse-by-verse, expository preaching of God's Word. That means that in our morning worship services we intentionally study the Bible together in a systematic way, examining a whole book of the Bible in each sermon series. We are currently studying 1 Samuel together.

The "Great Commission" in Matthew 28 instructs us to be intentional, as we are going into all the world, to make disciples in all nations. At SBC, we aim to take that seriously by using whatever means we have to promote worldwide missions and to support ministry efforts at home. We currently support 9 missionary families.

Life can be difficult, and many people are looking in many places for answers to problems. Shawnee Bible Church's LampLight Biblical Counseling Center is committed to sharing God's answers to life's problems (cf. Psalm 119:105). We believe that the Bible is not only our standard for theology and doctrine, but that it is also God's comprehensive means for our guidance, freedom, and renewal (Psalm 19:7-142 Peter 1:3-4).

Our pastors and elders are committed to equipping the saints so that they can carry out the work of the minsitry (Eph 4:11-13). Our Adult Bible Fellowship classes (Sundays at 9:30 a.m.) are designed to accomplish this goal by fostering learning in the context of community.
