WHAT TO EXPECT
We’re a family. Church is not a building we go to, but a family we belong to. At SMBC we are committed to building an authentic community where everybody feels welcomed, loved, accepted, and embraced for who they are; a child of the living God.
We’re a community of people who don’t have it all together, but are discovering what it means to find life in Jesus, to follow him fully, to break free from our past, and to walk in victory together. That’s who we are. Read more about core values, our beliefs, and our staff.
We care about you, not what you’re wearing. We don’t care who you’re voting for in the next election or how many tattoos you have. We’re a church full of imperfect, broken people who are coming to know Jesus and serving others together, and regardless of your story, we believe you belong.
We love it when someone comes for the first time. But, we don’t always recognize the first-time visitors because so many of the people who come are still fairly new, so feel free to say, “This is my first time” and we’ll guide you in.
Biblical teaching that connects the words of the Bible to everyday life and music that is both traditional and modern.
Don’t be surprised when some people raise their hands as a sign of praise while singing, and don’t feel obligated to do so yourself. We create an atmosphere of freedom in our services.
A Casual Atmosphere
We care about you, not what you’re wearing, so feel to come in jeans or whatever is comfortable. Our dress code is simple: wear something.
We will not single you out publicly or ask you to say anything, and we do not expect guests to contribute anything financially.
We take risks in faith and stay fast, fluid, and flexible in our approach to church. We do whatever it takes, short of sin, to find people who are far from God. We’re crazy about broken people and we’ll get our hands messy to serve others. Everybody belongs – every color, every shape, every personality, and people with every kind of story imaginable. We trust the Bible completely. We value Kingdom growth and invest in multiplying new churches locally, nationally, and globally. We do everything for the name and fame of Jesus Christ.
