Who We Are

History

     We stand in the long tradition of Christians who are known as Baptists. The first Baptist meeting in Rehoboth was led by elder Obadiah Holmes in 1649. However, opposition from the established church prevented the formation of a permanent Baptist work and the tiny congregation was forced to disband.
     In 1663, Baptists fleeing persecution in Britain arrived in the area. Finding a greater degree of tolerance they formed a church in a section of the town which they named Swansea, after the place they had left in their home country. Since that time there has been a succession of Baptist churches in Rehoboth, Massachusetts.
     Rehoboth Baptist Church is the most recent of these churches having been established in June, 1974 with a starting congregation of 4 people. The first public worship service was held at Johnson's Barn, Rehoboth, on July 21, 1974. The present facility was dedicated to the glory of God in 1983.
     The church holds membership in The Conservative Baptist Association of America and supports missionaries in the United States and around the world.

Message Of The Church

We proclaim the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as the only way of salvation (Acts 4:12). This message is the GOOD NEWS that people of every kind and from every walk of life need to hear so that in believing they might be forgiven of their sins and be reconciled to God.

The Purpose of the Church

Our purpose is to bring honor and glory to God in all that we do and say (Matthew 5:13-16; Colossians 3:17). Our purpose is to know and enjoy God through worship, prayer, and the study of the Bible. Our purpose is to apply that knowledge to our lives that we might please God by growing in His grace and sharing His love with our fellow man.

What is a Classic Church?

We believe that the unchanging truth of the Bible must inform every aspect of our lives as individual Christians and members of the church. Only then will the church be a biblical, or classic church.
A classic church is not conformed to the changing culture of the world, but lives above the culture, and has a transforming impact on it.

What Do We Believe?

We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, that it is without error and wholly sufficient for a life of faith and practice.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He is fully God and fully man and co-equal with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit.
(Colossians 2:9)

We believe that mankind (male and female) are sinful in nature and in practice and have all broken God's Holy Law. We believe that the penalty for sin is judgment and eternal punishment.
(Romans 3:23; 6:23)

We believe that it is impossible for any to be saved by their own effort apart from the grace of God and faith in Jesus Christ.
(Ephesians 2:8-9)

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe that Jesus Christ came to earth to pay the penalty as a substitute for sinners, and that all who repent of their sin and believe in Him will be forgiven and gain eternal life.
(1 John 1:8-9; John 3:16)
