    David Blake Phone: (765) 720-7905 Email:

    Position Description

    Bainbridge Christian Church is searching for a full time minister that desires to reach a community of nearly 6000 people, located in west central IN just about an hour west of Indianapolis.  Our church family desires a minister to live and serve in our community.  We are seeking a man with a Bible college degree and some experience is preferred.  In this position, you would be expected to preach at Sunday service, visit people, especially those in the hospital as needed, support and participate in extra curricular church activities and community events.  Our average weekly attendance is 50 in our small town, rural church.  Salary is negotiable based on experience.  Housing is provided with a small 3 bedroom parsonage with utilities paid and a pastoral cell phone allowance.

    At BCC we believe these statements:

    About God:  God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He eternally exists in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God.

    About JESUS CHRIST:  That Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  he is co-equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless life;  He died on the cross, as a perfect sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures.  Further, He arose bodily from the dead 3 days after the crucifixion, ascended into heaven 40 days after the resurrection, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.  He will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lord’s.

    About the HOLY SPIRIT:  The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.  He intercedes on our behalf.  He provides the Christian with power for living, and guidance in doing what is right.  The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.  He gives every believer at least one spiritual gift when they are saved.  As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.

    About the BIBLE:  The Bible is God’s word, both Old and New Testaments, to us without error in the original writings.  Scripture is the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.  It was written by humans authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.

    About HUMAN BEINGS: People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character.  People are the supreme object of Gods creation.  Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are corrupt by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.”  This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.

    About SALVATION: Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must receive it.  We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty.  We must turn from our self-ruled life to Jesus in faith in order to be saved.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.  Our salvation is not earned, it is received by total surrender and acceptance of this fact.  Jesus Christ said, “I am the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE and no man comes to the Father but through me.”

    About ETERNITY: People were created to exist forever.  We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or exist eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.  To be eternally separated form God is Hell.  To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven.  Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
