Our worship service offers a strong combination of solid biblical teaching and dynamic worship each Sunday. Our service at 10:50am is led by Rob Karns along with our Praise Team, Choir and Orchestra. Dr. Ryan Carpenter, our Senior Pastor, delivers the message which is both challenging and relevant.
What are Sunday Life Groups?
Sunday Morning Bible Studay classes offer, for visitors and members alike, an opportunity to meet new people in a small-group setting and grow deeper in their faith. Classes are offered on Sunday mornings at 9:30am for children, youth, single and married adults of all ages. For more details or to find the right classes for your family, click on the tab titled Ministries from the top menu.
Do you offer child care?
At Village Parkway, we care about our children and strive to offer care and learning that will demonstrate the love of Christ for each child and strengthen their faith. We have a full complement of Sunday School classes during the 9:30am hour for all ages that allows you, the parent, to attend your very own Sunday morning Bible Study class without worrying about your child(ren). We know your concern for the safety of your child(ren). As a result, every adult who works with our children must undergo Safe and Secure training which includes a criminal background check.
How do I become a Christian?
Romans 10:9-10 says, "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation." It is as simple as that. If you want a fuller explanation you can find more information on "Our Beliefs" page. If you have just prayed and confessed faith in Jesus, please call to let us know. Our phone number is (210) 680-7813.
What do you believe?
What we believe about God, Jesus, the Bible, and other topics is explained in the Baptist Faith & Message (2000). You can read the entire document in the "About Us" tab and then select "Beliefs." If you have questions after having read it, please call the church office. We'll be happy to sit down with you and answer your questions.
How do I join?
Village Parkway Baptist Church is a family of believers in Jesus Christ. You can become a member in one of four ways: Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior and being baptized by immersion. If you have already accepted Jesus, but have not been baptized by immersion, then by following Him in believer's baptism you may be accepted as a member. We can have your membership changed to VPBC by Transfer of Membership by letter from another Southern Baptist Church. Or you may become a member by Statement of Faith having previously accepted Christ and experienced baptism by immersion. For those who desire to join in any one of these ways, an invitation is offered at the conclusion of each worship service. A pastor will be happy to speak with you about your decision, and a counselor will work with you to gather all needed information. We are blessed to have you become a part of our family here at Village!
