Welcome to Damascus Baptist Church! Our goal is to be a family of believers rejoicing and serving in the grace, forgiveness, love, and calling of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our name itself signifies who we desire to be. It was not far from the Damascus gate in Jerusalem that the Apostle Stephen was stoned to death. (picture one?) A man named Saul watched with approval as Stephen died for his belief in Jesus Christ. Sometime later on the road to Damascus, Jesus Christ confronted Saul through a bright light which led to his conversion to live for Jesus! The Savior didn’t just change his name (to Paul), but He changed Paul’s vision and calling! The Lord charged Paul with the opportunity to share the Gospel with as many people as possible.
Our logo is a symbol of that same calling on our church. Our vision statement, “Sharing the life-changing light of Christ with the world,” also reminds us of that call. If you are looking for a church to call home and a place where you can make a difference regardless of your past, we would love for you to come and join us!
