An Unashamed Church of America and its Heritage
The Freedom’s Way Baptist Church has planned quite a celebration for the 4th of July weekend. In the early evening of Saturday, July 2, Pastor Jerry Cook scheduled a patriotic concert. This event will have patriotic music honoring the United States as Bible-believing Christians and guests enjoy the music and fellowship.
Sunday morning, Pastor Jerry Cook will lead the “red, white and blue” service. The congregation will enjoy an inspiring message with many references and Bible readings from the King James Bible. After the service, the congregation will enjoy a potluck.
The following day, Freedom’s Way Baptist Church will participate in the Santa Clarita July 4 parade with a decorated float and Bible walkers. It’s refreshing to have a church in Santa Clarita that loves the United States of America.
and is not afraid of nationalism or being patriotic. Pastor Jerry Cook wrote that he wanted to incorporate his love of country with his love of God and that’s how Freedom’s Way Baptist Church got its name.
On the Freedom’s Way Baptist Church website, under their statement of faith regarding civil government, it is written that God ordained and created all authority consisting of three basic institutions: home, church, and government. These authorities are responsible to God and governed by His Word. Home, church, and government are equal and sovereign in their respective biblically assigned spheres of responsibility under God.
One of the purposes of the Church is to instruct the body of Christ in Bible truth and principles. Freedom’s Way Baptist Church uses the King James Bible as a source of truth and Pastor Jerry Cook addresses home, church and government in
his messages. It is rewarding to have a church that is not afraid to evaluate our nation’s policies and celebrate its history while incorporating biblical references to teach its congregation about the connection and interactions of the three Basic Authorities under God. .
Visiting one of the events scheduled at Freedom’s Way Baptist Church would be a great addition to your regular celebration of this country’s Independence Day.
God bless America.
