“Don’t just like Jesus, be like Jesus”

Welcome

Welcome to Timberland Bible Church, and on behalf of the entire congregation, thanks for visiting.  We hope that the information you find here helps you know who we are and what we’re about.

The best way to get to know us is to visit us as we gather on Sundays to publicly worship God. We’re defined by our common belief that Jesus is both our Lord and Savior, and we need nothing else in common in order to serve together, love one another, and love our neighbors.

Our purpose as a church is to bring glory to God. We do that as we sing and pray together, serve and love one another, and hear and apply God’s Word in our lives. As we live out God’s Word, He sends us into our neighborhood, our city, and the world to declare the good news of the gospel and of “Him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light.”(1 Peter 2:9) It’s in newness of life, not tradition or religious duty, that we obey God’s commission for the church.

If there is anything I can do to help acclimate you to TBC please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Pastor Andy Cisneros

What to Expect

Visiting a church for the first time can be nerve-racking and awkward. We’d like to tell you a bit about our services to ease any tension you might feel.  There are three main parts to every Sunday service: preaching, worship, and kids.

Preaching

We preach God’s story.  While this might mean you’ll learn some things on how to be a better person, how to have a better marriage, or how to be more fulfilled in life—that’s not really the point. Because without God, nothing matters. It’s because of Jesus that we can be better, and true fulfillment is only found in His story. This means we teach from the Bible, because the Bible is all about God, Jesus, and being reconciled into His Kingdom.

Worship

God has blessed us with talented musicians who serve by offering contemporary music and fresh interpretations of traditional hymns.  Our worship is not about being entertained, but about preparing our hearts and minds to hear the Word of God in order to properly respond to it.  As a part of our worship, we partake in Communion together and give offerings in support of God’s work here and elsewhere.  Our worship times are casual, reflective, and open to all.

Kids

Each Sunday, your child will learn the Bible and how it relates to Jesus. The lessons taught by our volunteers are fun, approachable, and age appropriate.  We also provide resources like family guides, weekly activity books, and other Bible based lessons to help parents bring faith into the home during the week.  Our goal is to get kids excited about Jesus and to get families talking about Jesus together.  We offer nursery services starting at the beginning of each service.  Children in 1st – 7th grade stay for part of the worship before going to their own teaching time.

What We Believe

There is one God, our heavenly Father (1 Cor. 8:6). He alone is the creator of the heavens and the earth (Isa. 44:24). He reveals Himself in Scripture as one (Deut. 6:4), a creed which was confirmed by Jesus Christ (Mark 12:28ff). The Father is “the only true God” (John 17:3).

Jesus of Nazareth is the man Messiah (1 Tim. 2:5). He is the promised son of Abraham and son of David (Matt. 1:1). He is the future king of the Kingdom of God (Ps. 2:6-8). He was foreknown in God’s plan from the beginning (1 Peter 1:20) but was begotten in the womb of the virgin Mary (Matt. 1:18, 20, Luke 1:35).  

The Holy Spirit is the operational presence and power of God (Ps. 51:11). The Spirit is very personal, God in action. It is bestowed upon a believer upon conversion (Eph. 1:13, Acts 2:38) for the purpose of empowering a believer to live the Christian life.

The Bible consists of the 66 books of the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures. These are the authorative and inspired words for instruction of the believer.

The imminent arrival of the Kingdom of God upon the earth (Mark 1:15). This kingdom will be the inheritance of the faithful (Matt. 5:5, Rev. 5:10) and bring about the restoration of the earth promised by the prophets (Acts 3:21). Jesus Christ will be the king of this kingdom by ruling on the throne of David (Isa. 9:7, Luke 1:32-33).

The resurrection of the dead in Christ upon his arrival (Luke 14:14, 1 Thes. 4:16, 1 Cor. 15:51-53). The rest of the dead will not be resurrected until after the millennial kingdom is completed (Rev 20:5). The righteous will be given immortal bodies and the wicked will be destroyed.

Jesus Christ brought atonement of sins through his death and resurrection to eternal life on the third day (Romans 5). Jesus has been exalted to the right hand of the Father where he awaits his return in glory (Ps. 110:1).

  1. In order to be saved from the coming judgment, one must: Sincerely repent of their sins (Matt. 4:17), 
  2. Believe in the gospel of the kingdom (Mark 1:14-15), 
  3. Accept the sacrificial work accomplished by Jesus on the cross (Acts 8:12),
  4. Submit to water baptism (Acts 2:38), 
  5. Fully commit themselves to a sanctified life by obeying the words of their lord, Jesus Christ (Heb. 5:9).
