our mission statement

The Dorrisville Baptist Church is a family of believers whose purpose is to worship and glorify God while bringing others to faith in Jesus; helping them grow in their Christian walk through the teaching and preaching of God’s Word, Christian fellowship and preparation for their ministry in God's family.




We are a people of faith who believe…

 The Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man.  It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without mixture of error, for its matter.

 Salvation is offered freely to all through Jesus Christ.  It involves acknowledging one’s sin, asking forgiveness and turning from sin to follow Christ as Lord.  It is by God’s grace, though faith, that one is granted eternal life.

 The New Testament Church is a local body of baptized believers.  Their purpose is to spread the good news of Christ around the world and at home and to provide a place of fellowship and discipleship for believers. We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, the Illinois Baptist State Association, and Saline Baptist Association.


 We believe in helping and reaching people both through local mission projects and around the world.   This year we have had teams working in Uganda, East Africa, Managua, Nicaragua, Canada and the Amazon.  We also have worked in East St. Louis and Chicago.  Whenever and wherever, it is our desire to be Jesus and share His great love for people.                                                                                          

We also believe in supporting mission causes financially. We support missions through the North American Mission Board, the International Mission Board, and the Cooperative Program...a plan by Southern Baptists to fund missions locally and globally.
