|Welcome to the web site
of Liberty Baptist Church.|
We at Liberty know that it was not by coincidence that
you are here. Our God can use every detail of our lives and use it
draw you closer to Him. We may think things happen by accident but
God will use them to draw anyone to himself through Jesus Christ.
We ask you to continue browsing our site, so that the God of
Creation may show you what He wants you to see now and what He
wants you to come back to later.
First of all, God is concerned
about your personal relationship to Him. You man have heard or
read the first verse of Psalm 23: "The LORD is my Shepherd…"
This speaks of there being a personal relationship with the Lord.
Do you really know Him? If not please go immediately to God's Plan for Man's Salvation, and find
out how you can know for sure that you are one your way to heaven.
Nothing else on this site is as important as this.
Now that you have come to this
point, I would like to let you know something about Liberty
Baptist Church of Lincolton, NC, and a little about myself. If
you're a world wide web browser and not familiar with Lincolnton,
we are located about 38 miles northwest of Charlotte, NC, U.S.A.
Pastor Steve Sigmon and a few
other Christians started Liberty Baptist Church in 1979. These
Christians had approached Pastor Sigmon about starting an
Independent Baptist Church in Lincolnton. The church grew for
several years until the Devil worked his way in and sowed discord
among the believers. Many left and in 1996, the Lord led the old
Liberty Baptist Church to give the church building to the current
I trusted Jesus Christ as my
Savior at an early age and, as I look back, I know God had his
hand on my life to prepare me for the pastorate. (Even though He
did not call me to the pastorate until I was forty years old!) I
had always been active in church and had experience as an adult
Sunday School teacher, but when God called me I knew I needed more
training. God led me to come to Ambassador Baptist College in
Shelby, NC and to attend Emmanuel Baptist Church. When I was about
to graduate from Bible college, Pasotr Charles Surrett of Emmanuel
asked me to start a church out of Emmanuel. When he asked the
church to pray about sending me out, Brother Andy Stevens, also an
ABC graduate, told me that he and his wife would come and help us.
Once confirmed by our church, we
began looking for a place to meet about fifteen miles east of
Emmanuel. However, God continued to close one door after another.
While we continued to look, God was working on our hearts and the
hearts of Pastor Sigmon and the few people at Liberty. God then
cracked open a door of possibility, but it was not in the area in
which we were looking, but rather, it was in Lincolnton. When we
sought the counsel of Pastor Surrett, he instructed us to call
Pastor Sigmon. We called him, then met. The old Liberty's five
members gave us the church building and their checking account to
start a new work in Lincolnton. Brother Andy and I felt since the
old Liberty had the same biblical stand that we had as well as a
good reputation in the community, that we would keep the name
Liberty Baptist Church.
Since that time, we have grown by
a few in numbers, but greatly in spiritual growth. The greatest
testimony was from a man of seventy who was not even going to
church, and is not a faithful member who claims that "God is
everything to me." He exemplifies that personal relationship
with God that we at Liberty want you to have. I promise, as
pastor, to help you grow through the solid preaching of all the
Word of God. Sometimes it will convict you of your wrong doing
before God, and sometimes it will strengthen your faith. If you
are sincere with God, you will praise Him for the conviction and
the challenge to grow your faith. I also promise to challenge your
worship of God, hoping that you with grow into a deeper, intimate
relationship with God than you have ever had before. We will also
help your children, from a toddler throughout childhood, to learn
the love of God for them. We teach and show them God's love, and
give them opportunities to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior in
all of their classes. We at Liberty are a family in Christ who
want you to join us in worship of our God.
