Core Values

Pioneer Baptist Church is a committed fellowship of believers in Jesus Christ.  We are committed not only to Christ but also live out that commitment to one another, and in ministry to Central Kentucky.  At Pioneer Baptist Church we share several convictions that guide our ministry:

1. The Bible is the Word of God.

As such it is completely true, completely sufficient, and the final and absolute authority in our lives.  Because of our commitment to Scripture, we are dedicated to engaging, expository preaching and teaching.  We are committed to youth and children’s ministries that are grounded in and saturated with Scripture.  We believe in singing that is doctrinally substantive and Scripturally accurate.

2. The Gospel is Our Message.

We believe all of life depends upon the person and work of Jesus Christ as seen in His substitutionary death on the cross and His glorious, bodily resurrection from the grave.  The good news that reconciliation between God and man has been achieved and is available to all who place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ excites and motivates us.   Because this message is the only hope for life, it is a passion of ours and permeates everything we do.

3. The Church is the Body of Christ.

As such, it means that every member is vital to the overall health and function of the church.  We believe every member is a minister, equipped and called by God to some area(s) of service.  We expect members to be involved and engaged in worship and ministry.  We also believe strongly in a corporate element of worship.  We value congregational singing, as Paul says in Colossians 3:16 “Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”  We also believe that families should worship together.
