Welcome to Laurelwood Baptist Church

We believe that the Bible is God's Word that helps us face all the opportunities and challenges that come our way.
"Preparing To Meet With God"
Ecclesiastes 5:1-7
Charles Haddon Spurgeon was a pastor, author and preacher from the mid-nineteenth century. His church even today would be called a “megachurch”. His media influence was second to none; with his sermons published in the London paper each Monday. Yet is it this pastor who offered a convicting assessment of many who come to worship on Sunday morning. He said it this way, “I believe a very large majority of church goers are merely unthinking, slumbering worshipers of an unknown God.” Could many of us be guilty of that as well? How do you prepare yourself as you come to worship on Sunday? Join us this Sunday as we look at, “Preparing to Meet with God.”
Annie Dillard, Teaching a Stone to Talk: Expeditions and Encounters

Why do people in church seem like cheerful, brainless tourists on a packaged tour of the Absolute?...Does anyone have the foggiest idea what sort of power we blithely invoke? Or, as I suspect, does no one believe a word of it? The churches are children playing on the floor with their chemistry sets, mixing up a batch of TNT to kill a Sunday morning. It is madness to wear ladies’ straw hats and velvet hats to church; we should all be wearing crash helmets. Ushers should issue life preservers and signal flares: they should lash us to our pews. For the sleeping god may awake someday and take offense, or the waking god may draw us to where we can never return.
The fear of the Lord is knowing that He sees everything that we do, hears everything that we say, and knows everything that we think.
