Welcome to our website!
Our prayer is that we are a church that God can use to bless and strengthen you by the power of Jesus, and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and freedom. Rowandale Baptist Church is here for you. We want to function as a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord, and to celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word of God, practice what we learn, and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you! We hope to see you soon!
During the week and on Sunday mornings, many different kinds of people make their way through the doors of our church building. Some come in asking for help; eyes puffy, clothes dishevelled, their troubles written all over their faces. Others come in looking fine on the outside, but inside are living, as Henry David Thoreau put it, “lives of quiet desperation.”
This Sunday we will meet a man in the Gospel of Mark whose desperation was anything but quiet. He lived in a graveyard and spent his days and nights screaming and slashing himself with stones. He was demon-possessed.
Can you think of anything more miserable than that? The man was without hope and alone in a world of self-destructive torment. Then he met Jesus, and everything changed.
At first glance, we may assume that we have little in common with this man. But we are wrong. Demonic power is alive and well in this world, and we are not immune to its influence. Furthermore, whether we appear respectable on the outside or look like a total mess, we are all equally in need of Jesus’ saving power in our lives. It is this power that we learn about in our Bible passage this Sunday—not an impersonal force but the mercy that flows from the heart of God and is available to each one of us in the person of Jesus Christ.
