Southern Baptist Convention

Senior Pastor Role:
We are seeking a man to be responsible for leading the church to function as a New Testament Church. This man of God will work with Elders, Deacons, and church staff to do the following: lead the church to engage in a fellowship of worship, witness, education, ministry, application and benevolence. He will also lead the church to proclaim the gospel to believers and unbelievers. He will lead the church in caring for its members but also equally important, caring for and reaching our community and beyond with the Good News that Jesus Saves (Luke 15, 19:10).
Church Profile:
We are a church that believes the Word is authoritative and inerrant and is our standard for truth and obedience. We believe Christ is the center of all things. We should love the Lord our God with our whole hearts. We believe prayer is crucial in all areas of life.
We are a church that believes in outreach by taking Christ to the nations through prayer, discipleship, giving and going. It is our desire to lift up the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in order to bring people to Him and membership to His family. Develop them to a Christ like maturity and equip them for their ministry in the Church and life-mission in the world. We enjoy a pastor led, elder supported, and deacon served community-oriented congregation. Legacy is a medium size community church and has been in existence for 15 years.
