Mission and Vision Statement
Royal Lane Baptist Church is an inclusive, multi-generational community of believers in God as revealed in Jesus Christ. We believe in the inspiration of scripture, the equality of all persons, unity in diversity, and the priesthood of all believers. In communion with and through the power of the Holy Spirit, we follow the way of Christ and share the good news through worship, education, missions, and ministries.
We are a vibrant welcoming and affirming mosaic of ethnicities, racial identities, sexual orientations, and socioeconomics. We affirm the sacredness, dignity, and equality of every person.
Royal Lane is a progressive and autonomous Baptist church valuing the freedom to minister alongside other groups, both Christian and non-Christian.
We commit ourselves to:
- Worship that challenges the mind, stirs the heart, and lifts the spirit within the context of music, art, and liturgy.
- Christian education that is relevant, innovative, and based on thoughtful biblical information.
- Love one another as God loves us. We put this love into action through missions and ministries in our church, our community, and our world.
- A proclamation of the Christian faith that is responsible and free, socially concerned, and relevant to our needs as a caring and inclusive fellowship in today’s society.
