Sermons Encounter Service

Encounter is one of the two worship gatherings at Ridgedale Baptist Church. Each week, we gather to worship through song, prayer, and the preaching of the Scripture. Our hope is to see men and women grasp their place as kingdom citizens who live to Love God and Love Others through the power of Jesus. We aim to provide a picture of the love, mercy, and grace of God to those who are not part of the Christian faith while challenging believers to become more committed followers of Jesus.
