Philip has been the pastor of Furnace Creek Baptist Church since November of 2015. He and his wife Rachel both grew up in missionary households overseas: Philip in West Australia and Rachel in Papua New Guinea. Philip loves teaching verse by verse through Scripture, emphasizing the original context and how it applies to us today. He is happy to try to answer any questions you have about the church or spiritual matters.
Our Discipleship Process: Worship together, Journey together, Serve together.
Children and Youth journey together in age appropriate Sunday School classes at 10am, then worship together with their families at 11am. We occasionally have special things for the kids, but we believe children should primarily worship, journey, and serve together with their family. Children will mature best into godly adults by observing and being taught by godly adults. We do provide a nursery for children about 5 years old and younger.
We journey together in small groups (Sunday School) at 10am; then we worship together at 11am; then we continue journeying together in a fellowship lunch most Sundays (pot-luck) with discussion about how we can serve together during the week. And that's all we ask you to do: grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ by worshiping together, journeying together in personal relationships, and serving each other and the community together in a way that exalts Jesus and spreads the Gospel.
Our Mission: To glorify God by Telling and Living the Gospel in our Neighborhood.
