Welcome to AgapePinson.com, the website of Agape Baptist Church. We are a gospel community of faith in Pinson, AL. We are glad you took the time to visit our site and hope you consider joining us in worship God together.
Greetings! And thank you for visiting our site and seeking to learn more about Agape. I would love to take a moment and tell you about some of the things we find important as a church. For us, the foundation of all we do and believe is founded on the person, the work, and the words of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus taught the most necessary things in life are to love God supremely, to love other people as he loved us, and to make disciples by teaching others what it means to follow him. We have set our course to pursue these purposes together, and we would love to have you join us as the Lord leads your spiritual journey.
One of my core personal beliefs is that we are at our strongest in this life when we realize our complete dependence upon God for all things. This principle of relying on Jesus permeates all that we do as a church. We believe and trust in the power that God has given His word to bring about spiritual life, therefore we make the teaching and application of the bible a primary aim of each of our gatherings – whether at our building or in someone’s home. We also affirm that Jesus promised to send us a helper, the Holy Spirit, to empower us for all of life and ministry. Because of this, we make prayer and the seeking of God’s presence a centerpiece of our church life.
I want you to know that we make every effort to reflect the hospitality and kindness of Jesus to everyone. We understand that all people are lost and broken, with many personal frailties, yet Jesus is all sufficient to meet our needs, heal our wounds, and cover our disobedience before God. I was told years ago by my own mentor, there is nothing you can do to cause God to love you more or to love you less than He does right now. He just loves you. I invite you to believe that truth and to join us as we seek the life changing grace that is available to all of us who turn to Christ.
If I can answer any questions for you about our church, or assist you in anyway, please feel free to reach out to me. I hope to meet you soon!
Relying Completely on Christ
Grace and Peace

In a recent post we considered the value of scripture meditation. One goal of meditation is to slow down and prayerfully consider key words in order to draw out riches from the text. Let’s try this together in Hebrews 4, with a focus on verse 16: 14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed …
If you were honest, how would you describe your time in God’s word? A drudgery or a delight? A chore or a gift? The reality is many Christians find reading God’s word to be more of a duty than a relief. While knowing it is beneficial, we often relate to it as a necessity for …
